Who’s the new kid on the block? Moscato!!

An interesting new variety has hit the shelves of Lentedal Wine, a wine seldom seen from the Margaret River region; Moscato.  Made from Muscat ‘Blanc à Petits Grains’, a white wine grape of Greek origin that is a member of the Muscat family.  With characteristically small, tight grape clusters, Muscat is of the oldest wine grapes in the world.

Lentedal’s Muscat ‘Blanc à Petits Grains’ grapes were planted only 4 years ago with the 2018 vintage being our very first with excellent results!  Our winemaker, Peter Stanlake, in consultation with Lentedal’s owner David Hann, based the Lentedal Moscato style on the classic Muscat D’asti wines of Piedmont, Italy – a style which is generally semi-sparkling or sparkling and famous for its sweet flavours of peaches and orange blossom. The wine is low in alcohol at 5.5% alcohol by volume (ABV), compared to regular still wine typically of about 13% ABV.  The wine boasts a beautiful light pink colour and will pair perfectly on a spring or summer’s day with some medium bodied cheese or a deliciously spicy curry!

So, if you’re after something new from the Margaret River region, this drop will definitely surprise and impress with its slight sweetness and spritz!
