- My Rating: [C+]
Jacob’s Creek Moscato 2011 – Orlando Wines, 8.0% ABV, 750ml., (Rowland Flat, South Australia)
on the back label:
“Jacob’s Creek Moscato is a deliciously refreshing ‘frizzante’ style wine delicately spritzed with vibrant sherbet flavours balanced with a lively and soft fruit sweetness.”
- Style: (Frizzante – Moscato) White wine
- Taste: Bright dense sweet puckery sour muscat grape partially cloying
- Where I got it : BC Liquor Stores
- How much: ~$13 – 750ml., sometime in 2012
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to white wine aficionados: unbalanced
Visual: (cellared for 5 years). Twist cap top. Pours barely fizzy with lots of small bubbles hugging the side of the glass, light sunshine yellow colour.
Nose: bright apple-lime acidity, stonefruit minerality. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: puckery acidic-tart
Mid-palate: dense (lvl-6-sweetness), continued med-aggressive sour, alcoholic tang, muscat grape, lime
Finish: tart acidity, thickened saliva, prickly-tangy tongue, sticky gums, apple-white grape exhale.
Summary: Lots of bright grapey-apple fruitiness characteristic of moscatos, although somewhat cloying and sticky in the finish. Drinks like an inexpensive and straightforward muscat wine for the masses.
