Campbells Moscato 2011

Moscato, though not for everyone, has its place and I quite enjoy its forthright charms from time to time.  This moscato from Campbells in Rutherglen in the warm north east of Victoria (and fortified wine stronghold) is made from perhaps the most noble of the muscat grapes, the muscat à petits grains.  



Light pink in colour, the 2011 vintage has a grape juice like aroma, opening to a medium-sweet palate with medium to pronounced intensity flavours of currant and rose water, and a light frizzante texture.  Lovely summer drinking.  86 points
