All Saints Estate Moscato 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

With a light straw colour and packed with crisp, grapey flavour, lush ripe fruit and tingly bubbles or ‘frizzante’ this wine is fresh and lively and oozes universal appeal. The spritz and the sweetness are both naturally occurring in this wine. After harvesting, crushing and pressing, the juice ferments. This fermentation is carried out by yeast that consumes the sugar and produces alcohol and carbon dioxide gas. The ferment is then stopped just over half way through, and kept really cold. By doing this, some of the sugar remains, the wine is low in alcohol and lots of carbon dioxide is produced. The Moscato accompanies fresh fruit desserts quite well. It is also the perfect aperitif and is excellent with cheese.

Established by two enterprising Scots, George Sutherland Smith and John Banks. The castle was built in the 1880's and based on the design of The Castle of May, complete with turrets and tower. The castle is classified by the ‘Historic Buildings Council’, along with two other Estate buildings, the former bottling hall & cellar and the Chinese Dormitory. The former bottling hall and cellar now houses The Indigo Cheese Co. (est. December 2005), and the Chinese Dormitory, built around 100 years ago, is the last remaining example of its type. The Great Hall, our main wine storage area, is lined with huge 100-year-old oak casks, filled with rare Tokays and Muscats. Some of these fortified wines are up to 80 years old and will form the base of future blends for years to come. The wines are amongst Australia's and the world’s greatest, internationally extolled for their richness and "lusciousness". All Saints Estate won the first gold medal for Australian wine in 1873 at the London International Exhibition and continues to win trophies and receive rave reviews today. Read less
