2021 Signature Label Sparkling Moscato
The inaugural release of an Ellis Wines moscato and it’s a mighty good one, too, all sherbety, citrussy and grapey fresh with a bubble that won’t stop. The sweetness factor is there, but it is well-contained and part of its lemon sherbet tang. Touch of spice, too. Good to see moscato back and doing well. Halliday rating 92.
This sparkling Moscato is a variety predominantly grown in the northern mountains of Alto Adige in Italy. A floral and musky aroma leaps from the glass followed by a lively spritz on the palate coupled with jasmine nectar, lychee characters and a delicious touch of sweetness. Perfect as an aperitif or paired with a smoked salmon blinis
