Details

A sweet, white wine with quite intense aromas of honey, flowers and fresh grapes. On the palate the wine reveals further fresh grape and citrus notes. A clean wine with refreshing acidity on the finish to balance the sweetness.

The grapes for Araldica's Moscato d'Asti are sourced from their members' vineyards, in the Monferrato hills in the south of the province of Asti in the Piemonte region. The vineyards have a south westerly aspect and are at altitudes of between 250 and 400 m above sea level. Vines are grown in limestone-clay soil using the Piedmont low Guyot trellis. The average age of the vines is 30 years and the planting density 4000-4500 vines per ha. Yields are 77 hl per ha. The fruit is hand-harvested between 1st to 12th September.

Fermentation in pressure tank under temperature control. The fermentation is deliberately stopped by chilling and filtration to retain the luscious natural sweetness.

Drink well chilled as a summer aperitif or after dinner with fruit and nuts.

    Champagne & Sparkling Wines

    The secret to Champagne bubbles comes from the addition of a special mixture of sugar and wine called the ‘liqueur d’expedition’. This is what makes the bubbles. Sparkling wines have bubbles and high acidity and range from white, rosé to red in colour. Sparkling wines have been long associated as a celebratory beverage, but actually match with a wide variety of foods.
