About the Wine
The MDI Moscato Giallo is really not what you'd usually expect from this grape.
Rather than being sweet and bubbly, this wine is dry and still but with plenty of lovely fruit characters, such as grapefruit, melon, pineapple and lychee, making it quite an attractive wine to smell. With 14 days on skins, the wine is medium bodied and has quite a full mouthfeel, and the phenolics give it interest but without being too aggressive, maintaining the softness that often comes from the Moscato Giallo grape.
If you're looking for something a little different to drink, then the MDI Moscato Giallo should challenge your beliefs about what this grape can do.

Winemaker Kevin McCarthy is a bit of a wine rebel - cutting his teeth originally in the Mornington Peninsula, his winemaking philosophy became shaped by multiple trips to Europe.
He learned all there is to know about skin contact wine, directly from northern Italian winemakers themselves, and he applies all that knowledge to his wonderful fleet of great value, alternative variety Aussie wines.
