Barossa Tower Moscato 2010
Sold Out
Winemaking

Picked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceded a long, cool fermentation averaging 12°C. The fermentation was left to run its course over 14 days leaving a naturally sweet, vibrant wine. A touch of spritz is detectable on the palate from the residual carbon dioxide which was harnessed and bottled to retain both fruit vibrancy and freshness.

Vinification

This is the first wine Château Tanunda has bottled out of the 2010 vintage. This light, fresh and deliciously sweet wine is the perfect aperitif. The nose is characterised by the lifted floral notes of musk and summer fruits with the palate having a great natural fruit sweetness. The slight natural effervescence is refreshing and cleansing, with fruit notes of lime and pineapple with a clean zesty finish.

CHÂTEAU TANUNDA  BAROSSA TOWER  MOSCATO     2010 

This wine can lay claim to being one of the first produced from the 2010 vintage. Made from moscato bianco grapes it’s sweet and sassy with perfumed musky notes on the nose, bright tropical and citrus fruit flavours, lively acidity and a touch of spritz to tickle the taste buds. Drink with a fresh fruit and cheese platter. $15

Review by: Winsor Dobbin, SAUCE
As far as I’m aware, this was the first wine to be released from the 2010 vintage - before many other wineries had even finished picking their grapes. This has sugar and spice and all things nice - so if you enjoy your tipples fresh and fruity with a slight spritz you’ll love this one.Take it on a girls’ night out.... Winsor Dobbin,Sauce.

This is back to the quality of the 2008, gentle fizz that is fresh, clean and vibrant, with intense fruity flavours, finishing crisp and gently sweet.
