This Moscato displays exciting tropical fruits, expressive aromatics of fresh mango, lychee, kiwi, and papaya. The mouthfeel is balanced with crisp acidity and residual sugar leading to flavors of cantaloupe and candied pineapples.
100% estate grown
Our 2017 Airfield Moscato is made in the fashion called Kabinett, this style is when the grapes are harvested early in their sugar development yet has the flavors, ripeness and the brisk acidity we are looking for. The goal is to create a wine that is lower in alcohol with brisk acidity and balanced natural residual sugar. Harvested in early September, the grapes were not de-stemmed and were sent directly to the press as whole clusters. After gentle pressing, the wine was settled for 72 hours before being racked off its lees to begin fermentation. To maintain the fresh fruit characteristics of the wine, we fermented at a cold temperature of 56 degrees that lasted for nearly 3 weeks before fermentation was seized to maintain the wine’s natural residual sugar.
