The full Montevecchio

Chalmers Montevecchio Moscato Frizzante, Moscato Giallo 2017, Heathcote, AUD $24

This is the smartest moscato I’ve tasted this year: a dangerously addictive drink. With a pale yellow colour and a good cordon of bubbles, it has a very fragrant and appealing aroma of fresh muscat grapes, the palate effervescent and creamy, with measured sweetness and lovely balance. (Screwcap)
