THE WINE: Pale gold in colour our 2023 Mariposa Moscato is our finest expression of the Moscato style. The nose is lifted with aromas of lemon pith, fresh grapes, tropical fruit, and musk. On the palate, our Moscato comes alive with vibrant and mouth-filling flavours of passionfruit, citrus sherbet and crushed white grapes. The mild frizzante effect on the palate adds to its lively and fresh character while providing a balanced and seamless finish. Best enjoyed chilled while young and fresh.

THE VINTAGE: Experiencing a third La Niña year in a row made the 2022-2023 growing season a record-setting year from a weather perspective. With volatile weather conditions at flowering, crops were down in the Swan Hill region, but fruit quality, and ultimately wine quality, is outstanding.

THE WINEMAKING: The 2023 Moscato fruit was harvested in the cool nighttime to preserve its natural freshness and quality at the optimum sugar and flavour ripeness of 11.8° baumé. The fruit was pressed to stainless steel tanks where the juice was cold settled for 48 hours. The juice was racked and fermentation commenced with a specially selected yeast strain that enhances freshness and varietal character. In a slow and controlled manner and at a temperature of 12 - 14°C, fermentation continued for 10 days. At 6.5%v/v alcohol the fermentation was stopped by chilling the wine and filtering off yeast lees. After this, the wine was stabilised, and filtered before bottling.

FOOD MATCHES: An excellent match with Thai Green Chicken Curry.
