WINE IN FOCUS: MOSCATO

Moscato, a wine traditionally made from the muscat grape varieties, has become something of a cultural phenomenon in recent days. Over the past few years, demand for Moscato has exploded, with consumers looking for a sweeter, lighter bodied wine with a lower alcohol content.


Muscat grapes are one of the oldest varietals on the planet and have been used in winemaking since ancient times. Originating from the Piedmont region in northwest Italy, Moscato d’Asti (semi-sparkling) and Asti Spumante (sparkling) are the classic examples. Both Italian versions have Italy’s highest DOCG classification, which means they have a protected guarantee of origin. While many Moscatos seek to emulate these classic Italian styles, exciting new styles have emerged using alternate grape varieties, such as Still Moscato and Pink Moscato (often made with a touch of Merlot to give it a ruby-pink color and hints of strawberry).


Hope Estate has recently released its own still Hunter Valley Moscato. Deliciously refreshing and naturally fruit-sweet, this crystal white Moscato has a delicate aroma of freshly crushed grapes and rose petals. Perfectly balanced spritz and sweetness make it the ideal party partner. Serve chilled and enjoy now.
