Muscat Sauvignon Blanc Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia
The primary aim at Evans & Tate is to make wines that are truly expressive of the sensational winegrowing terroirs which make Margaret River so special. They have succeeded in capturing the sensational style of pinkly hued, lusciously grape flavoured wines that are finding a home within the hearts of Moscato lovers everywhere. A cepage of mostly Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz, with additions of Canada Muscat and Chardonnay, brought together in a brightly fruit forward, slightly petulant, toothsome fruit cup, best described as irresistible.
Consistent and reliable, enthusiasts have come to trust the reputation of Evans & Tate's consistency in style, coupled with the trend towards lighter, more refreshing wine. Margaret River's renowned cool summer nights and sea breezes ensure that the fruit ripens beautifully at lower baume with excellent natural acidity, perfect for the Moscato style. Harvested throughout the cool of night, fruit is lightly crushed through an airbag press, the highest quality free run juices are separated and treated to a traditional vinification. A floral yeast is added and ferments are kept at 15C, retaining freshness and bright fruit aromas. Upon completion, are cold stabilized and treated to filtration before bottling. Alcohol 8.5%
