Muscat Frontignac Barossa Adelaide Hills South Australia
Come home to Mama! The Schild family have been growing Frontignac Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains for over sixty years, originally sourced by the nation's most eminent labels for bottling as rich fortified wines. The deliciously refreshing grape has found a new calling, as a pretty, delicate style of aromaticness and moreishness. Conspicuous for her arrestingly ripe, juicy fruit flavours, a daintily perfumed accord, bursting with ripe grape characters over a teasingly petulant palate and sweetly satiating finish.
The Schild family established their Barossa vineyards in 1952 and have since developed a reputation for consistency and quality in their approach to viticulture. Schild are style driven according to selection of vineyard, clonal stock and variety of fruit. Individual parcels are nurtured to produce wines of exceptional quality and finesse. It is the primary philosophy that minimal handling of the fruit at harvest and during the vinification produces better wines. Frontignac grapes are treated to a traditional vinification at the Schild estate wineworks, the final Moscato is fashioned to create a wine of balance, freshness and complexity.
Clear, bright, a slight spritz. Delicate but intense perfume of elderflower, white floral notes and tasty turkish delight. Tropical fruits, rose petal water, grapeyness and pear, citrus and subtle piquant characters of lemon lime pith, a faint touch of quinine followed by a fresh long finish, a deliciously lip smacking aftertaste sets you up for the next sip.
