2017 Pig & Pooch Moscato
Goes well with strawberries & raspberries
With dessert style foods you need the wine to be sweeter than the dessert to be a good match. That is why fresh berries go so well with Moscato as they are not too sweet.
Local suppliers of fresh strawberries and raspberries.
The fruit for this wine – the premium Muscat variety, Muscat a Petit Grains - was picked and pressed in Nyah, Victoria at 10.5 Be. The must was held in the press for 6 hours prior to pressing to extract colour and flavour from the skins. The juice was then transported to Tasmania by refrigerated transport on both truck and boat. The juice was cool fermented with a neutral yeast. The fermentation was stopped at 4 Be by chilling the ferment. The wine was then stabilised filtered and bottled with light carbonation.
This is a refreshing and complex Moscato. The nose shows the classic floral and musk stick aromas that this variety is known for, but also has added spice flavours as a result of the extra skin contact.
