2021 Saracco Moscato d'Asti (750ml)
Described by Vinous Media wine critic Ian D'Agata as the 'DRC of Moscato d'Asti', this is a captivating example of Moscato.
Brilliant water like core with faint tinges of green to its edges and possessing plenty of spritz. Delightful freshly crushed sultana grape scents mix with pear, orange blossom and hints of Turkish delight. Light and bursting with an energetic freshness yet wonderfully intense and possessing a luscious fruit tingle like feel, sweet sultana grape like flavours mux with subtle musk, pineapple and mango fruits. Crisp effervescent finish with subtle infusions of orange blossom carrying through onto the long refreshing and highly moreish aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
This lovely, sweet sparkler opens with heady aromas of yellow stone fruit, spring blossoms and wild aromatic herbs. The savory palate delivers ripe apricot, creamy yellow peach, rosemary and sage. Crisp acidity not only keeps it focused and tangy, but seamlessly balances the sweetness so it's never cloying but always bright and racy. A refined, foaming mousse provides lots of finesse.
