Made with McLaren Vale White Frontignac (Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains).
Il Bacio d'Oro (The Kiss of Gold) Sparkling Moscato was crafted with this Golden coloured grape from family owned and lovingly managed vineyards in McLaren Vale. Picked at around 12 Baume, it was fermented until sugar and alcohol were in even proportions. Just 14 days from vine to bottle, the natural carbon dioxide from fermentation has been retained, giving the majority of the gas in this Moscato.
To retain maximum characters this wine is made with minimal fining and filtration and a small amount of natural harmless sediment is present.
For those sensitive to sulphites, the naturally occurring amount from fermentation is a tiny 5mg/Ltr, which is 10-20 times less than an average white wine with added sulphites.
Alcohol by volume; 6% v/v
Approx 3.6 standard drinks
Natural Residual Sugar; 108g/Lt (6% sugar/baume`)
Varieties; 100% White Frontignac
Geographical Indication; McLaren Vale, South Australia

2014 Il Bacio d`Oro Preservative Free Sparkling Moscato Huon Hooke Review
Huon Hooke Review August 2014 please view editorial
30 August 2014
Deep yellow-golden colour, a trifle cloudy, with a strange mead-like aroma revealing apparent age, as does the colour. Lots of honey notes and perhaps a hint of muscat fruit, but it's morphed into other things now.
The softness, fullness and sweetness make it an appealing drink. I like it. It's very soft and harmonious, loaded with character and really fills the mouth.
