Brown Brothers find the delectable fruit flavours of Muscat to be simply irresistible. They've been inspired to fashion a gorgeous rose coloured wine with plenty of sparkle and just the right amount of sweetness. But just how does Moscato get it's gorgeous pink colour? The secret to her comely coral blush is the addition of a special red grape called Cienna, an exciting new varietal invented right here in Australia by our very own CSIRO. The classic aperitif to be enjoyed at every occasion, Moscato Rosa is a match made in heaven alongside camembert or brie.
Muscat of Alexandria and Ciena share a great affinity for each other and enjoy soaking up the sun in the warmer climes along the Mallee. A hybrid of an obscure Spanish grape named Sumoll and the Cabernet varietal, Ciena favours good sunshine to develop ripe red berry fruit characters. Mystic Park Vineyard yields parcels of deliciously, plump, juicy grapes, bursting with flavour, just perfect for an effervescent wine. Muscat and Ciena are harvested at full physiological ripeness, showing high levels of baume ranging from 9.5° to 12.5°. Fruit is treated to a traditional Charmat vinification which retains the stunning grape flavours and aromas, to be bottled promptly after vinification. Alcohol 7.0%
Bright pink strawberry hue, a light and delicate appearance with persistent bead. Lifted red berry aromas along with freshly crushed grapes and perfume of spiced fruit characters which follow through to the palate. Luscious stonefruit and berry flavours are enhanced by crisp acidity and a full sparkling sensation which completes a most refreshing wine. A clean finish with lingering expressions of dark berries and ripe grapes. Best enjoyed well chilled while young and vibrant. Moscato Rosa is splendid with prawns, superb with basil/ goats cheese pizzette, the perfect match alongside prosciutto wrapped figs or pear.
