From an old vineyard at Lake Boga in Victoria. Extended skin contact before a wild yeast ferment. With Justin’s experience in brewing beer he added beer hops at the end of ferment to add aromatics, complex flavours, bitterness and a natural preserving effect from the hop oils. The wine was bottled à la pétillante naturelle to finish fermentation in bottle. Preservative free.

Grape Variety: Moscato Bianco
Region: Swan Hill, Victoria
Colour: Pale straw with yellow hints. A slight haze is evident that increases as the sediment is disturbed.
Bouquet: Spectacular moose that lifts the vibrant hop and muscat aromas of coriander seed, lavender oil, dried herb, dragon fruit and orange peel. A bit like a hoppy beer, but the wine aromas shine through.
Palate: Softly sparkling with a fine matrix of bubbles evident, a creamy mouthfeel dominates with freshly squeezed lime and herbal flavours lingering on a crisp dry finish. This is a bone dry Moscato. There is a natural sediment in the bottle of yeast lees and hop flowers.
As this wine is preservative free. It is best drunk within a few years of the vintage. Store in upright in a cool place.
