T Gallant Juliet Moscato CONFIRM VINTAGE

Muscat Mornington Victoria
Mornington brings something different to the Italianate Moscato, climactically it is blessed with a real advantage. In Australia, there are fewer traditional stylistic conventions to the handling of Moscato, therefore flavoursome and refreshing versions can be crafted which trump the Europeans. T'Gallant fashions their Moscato to display the virtues of simple, high quality winemaking, picking the grapes at a moderate alcohol level, gentlly pressing and not messing about with the wine too much, practices which are all central to the T'Gallant philosophy.
Available by the dozen

Mornington is a fantastic cool climate region for the Moscato, it enjoys a maritime aspect which ensures the vines never get a really hot day. The flavour and acids are preserved and phenolics are kept to a minimum. The maritime elements also infuse all those Mediterranean air characters into the nose and palate. Fully ripened until bursting with rich natural sugars and wonderful floral elements, the fruit is gently pressed to capture the luscious pale golden juices. T'Gallant's Kevin and Kathleen Quealy keep the winemaking process minimal and pure, as maintaining freshness is paramount to the appeal of the final wine. Post fermentation, whilst still fresh and vital, Juliet is racked and promptly filtered into bottle.
Pale straw hue. A fully aromatic profile, fruity and floral, roses and white carnation, alluring grape bouquets, a beguiling beginning to this wine. A flourish of hot pink with a little of the fermentation spritz, flavours of fruit punch and wild strawberry, ripe peaches and rosewater. Juliet is endowed with a decadently full palate of ripe fruit, a touch of savoury, soft acids and long delicious finish.
