Montevecchio Moscato is lovely and you should buy some. It is very much in the Italian mould of being fruity, floral, soft and slightly sweet but totally refreshing. Therefore it is perfect for casual sipping or really shows its worth as a cleanser after a night on heavy wines and food. Drink it young and fresh.
From the new Heathcote vineyards planted by the Chalmers family. The Chalmers are passionate about finding, importing and encouraging the use of grape varieties that will suit the Australian climate. This level of innovation means a great breadth of wine. Which most importantly is great quality.
The glamour region of Victoria for lovers of big reds. And the core production is Shiraz and Cabernet with ‘guts’. But it is a region that offers a lot of diversity when you scratch the surface. The cooler southern parts border Macedon and make lovely aromatic wines. There is a lot of experimentation and adoption of more drought resistant Italian varieties to great effect too.
Muscat is one of the oldest varieties in the world. Giallo is a particular clone that is used to make the best Moscato d’Asti & Asti (Spumante) in Italy. A very distinctive flavour and balance is evident in this clone.
