2022 Muscat Frizzante
Sept 29 & 30, 2022
Now and over the next year to best enjoy the fresh flavours of this fizz.
March 15, 2023
Light and spritzy, with perfumed aromas of orange blossom, jasmine, lime zest, orchard and citrus fruit. Prepared brut, the palate is crisp with a creamy mousse, and none of the obvious sweetness that can sometimes be associated with Muscat. Balanced acidity with flavours of stone fruit, honeysuckle, lemon, lime, and a distinct floral quality that carries through from the nose to the lengthy finish.

Each lot was hand-harvested, sorted, destemmed and pressed. The juice was transferred gently into individual stainless steel tanks, where it was cold settled for 72 hours, and then racked, warmed and inoculated with selected yeast strains. All ferments were kept cool, in order to maximize aromatic expression, and were racked and chilled upon completion. All pieces were then blended, and the final wine was stabilized, filtered and canned with in-line carbonation.
A fresh and vibrant wine with bright, natural acidity, and a fun spritz that’s fitting for any occasion. Usually the first blocks to be harvested, and one of the first bottlings each year, our Muscat Frizzante is always an exciting glimpse at the quality that the new vintage promises. This year, both of the muscats provided great aromatics with bountiful acidity, and were in need of no assistance from any other blending components. Back in bottle for the first time since 2019, after much demand! The perfect addition to any celebration, patio, BBQ or Tuesday.
