David Lawrason: 2019 moscato d’osoyoos

Presented in a tallish, 500ml bottle this is a fabulous off-dry, gently sparking and low alcohol white patterned on Italy’s Moscato d’Asti. It is rendered here with remarkable purity and acuity. It is only 9.9% alcohol, spry, effervescent and perfectly balanced. The aromatics are exuberant with mandarin/orange which is muscat’s secret weapon. But also nuances of green tea, lavender and anise. The focus and length are excellent. An ideal summer sipper at the end of the night. Value 5/5
