Viticulturist Notes
Fruit for the McPherson Moscato was harvested from a select vineyard within the Swan Hill region of Victoria. The fruit was crushed, pressed and cold settled before being inoculated. The juice was also fined prior to inoculation to ensure that the final wine is smooth and easy to drink. The fermentation was conducted at very cool temperatures ranging between 8-10°C, with the fermentation period taking 10 days. To make certain sugar / alcohol balance was perfect, the ferment was measured daily for sugar and alcohol levels. The final wine was then fined, cold stabilised and filtered within a week to ensure the retention of the spritz and to keep the wine as fresh and fruity as possible.
Wine Harvest Notes
I have been making wine with McPherson Wines for 15 years now, and just when you think you have it sorted, bam another challenge comes your way. Vintage 2020 in itself was manageable and promising, yields were low therefore overall tonnages down. Given yields were low, quality is great - the intensity of both colour and flavour in the reds and whites is excellent - there will certainly be some cracking reds from 2020. We were almost through the harvest when the COVID restrictions hit - which provided another level of complexity. However it all worked out in the end, it usually does, and I hope that everyone enjoys our 2020 wines.
Food Recommendations
Easy drinking with low alcohol and a slight spritz on the palate, our Moscato is perfect for a Sunday afternoon tipple. Served chilled with lime and mint at a garden party, or it partners beautifully with a spicy Asian curry or Thai salad.
