Yalumba 'Christobel's' Moscato 750ml
Pale straw in colour with gold tints. Feminine and fragrant aromas of daphne, white rose and lychee abound. The palate is light and fresh with flavours of lychees and fresh mango. Its sweetness is balanced by a subtle spritz and refreshing sherbet finish.The perfect wine to enjoy on a summer afternoon.
Wet conditions in early winter replenished the vineyard soils. From August until mid summer it was dry and cool. January was very mild and at times even cool, allowing the Muscat grapes to ripen evenly and retain their characteristic fragrant aromatics and a fresh natural acidity.
The fruit was picked in the coolest part of the evening and the juice handled reductively in order to preserve fruit freshness and aromatics. Cool fermentation with aromatic yeast strains retains the lovely varietal flavours of the Muscat grape. The ferment is stopped early to maintain the perfect balance between natural acid and grape sugar in the final blend.
