A sweet, fruity, gently effervescent wine that’s so good even Kanye, Nelly and L’il Kim are singing its praises.
Moscato is not designed to be cellared but to be consumed whilst young, fresh and vibrant. Most importantly, make sure it is suitable chilled.
Australian Moscato Regions
Muscat grapes have been growing in Australia for as long as we’ve been cultivating vines, which doesn’t compare to Italy’s history, granted, but time enough for us to develop a variety of uses for them including single varietal Moscatos, fortified Liqueur Muscats and as a blend with other popular varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc.
Our most successful muscat-growing region is South East Australia, particularly the Murray Valley in Victoria where the Rutherglen and Glenrowan districts are becoming renowned worldwide for their Liqueur Muscat production.

Moscato Food Matching
Well now, this all depends on when you’re serving your moscato. For Sunday brunch, for example, serve with fresh berries - or perhaps seafood crepes - yet it works equally well with savouries such as a cheese board or antipasto plate. It’s a perfect picnic partner.
