The Grant Burge Alfresco range features delicate Moscato wines with a subtle 'frizzante' effervescence, crafted in a unique style best suited to many celebrations and occasions.
2018 MOSCATO FRIZZANTE
The Grant Burge Moscato Frizzante is a delicate style, suited to wine lovers of all styles and many different occasions. This wine is handcrafted from premium fruit sourced from vineyards throughout the Barossa, using the traditional Moscato variety of White Frontignac, also known as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains.
The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed with the fermentation process carried out at a cool temperature (11-13°C) for several weeks. At this time, the fermentation was stopped to retain natural grape sugars and sweetness. The wine had only 9% alcohol when it was bottled under low temperatures to retain the natural carbon dioxide, which appears in the wine as subtle elegant bubbles.
The Grant Burge Moscato Frizzante is an exceptionally rich and fruity wine showing characters unique to the noble White Frontignac grape (Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains), grown in rich Barossa soils.
