Muscat Frontignac Barossa South Australia
Grant Burge is a romantic with a real sense of contemporary tastes and modern lifestyles. Moscato grapes are selected from the choicest vineyards to create this delicately fruit driven wine, visually captivating with its brilliant salmon colour and light petulance, its scrumptuous palate of stylishness and charm. Featuring a delightful frizzante and being blessedly low in alcohol, Rosa offers great drinkability, very well suited as aperitif, a perfect match to your favourite cuisine.
The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking can be traced back to 1855. Throughout his career, Grant has been one of the most respected and innovative forces in the Australian wine industry. Moscato grapes are crushed and destemmed, the juices are cold settled and inoculated with neutral yeast to retain natural fruit characters. A vinification process is carried out at cool temperatures under ten degrees over a period of three weeks, at which point ferments are arrested to retain natural grape sugars.The wine is refreshingly low in alcohol, bottled early and under low temperatures to retain the natural carbon dioxide which appears in the wine as subtle elegant bubbles. Alcohol 8.0%
Crimson pink hue. Alluring aromas of rose petal and turkish delight, peaches and musk on the nose. The lively palate shows rich ripe fruit avours with strawberries, cherries and subtle sweet spices. The natural sweetness of the fruit is balanced by the elegant acid structure of the wine which nishes with a crisp, clean zingy taste. Rosa is best enjoyed alongside fine food and always amongst good company.
