Tasting Notes

Yellow Tail Pink Moscato wine has no airs and graces, but it is full of delightful fizz! Modest by nature and modest in price, you will be getting a screw-top bottle of wine that delivers far more than the price indicates. The fruity flavors abound, and the low alcohol content, makes this sweet wine crisp and refreshing.

Appearance

The light rose color that sparkles as it is poured, immediately reminds you of the sky at sunset. It is bubbly and vibrant in the glass, and you might even believe that you have captured a little ray of sunshine as the bubbles twirl around the rim.

Aroma

This fizzy bit of fun is not going to give your nose much to do. You may be able to pick up the hints of apple and pear on the nose, but you won’t get a blast of alcohol.

Taste

All the deliciousness of this wine is in the taste! It is packed with the zingy taste of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and fizzy sherbet. I was afraid that it would be saccharine, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not sickly-sweet or syrupy. The mellow fizz tickles the tongue and presents the layers of fruit flavors one after the other. First apple, then pear, followed by tropical fruits and a little citrus at the end.

Finish

With a surprisingly long finish, the Yellow Tail Pink Moscato lingers and spreads its sweet flavors over the palate. The flavors deepen before they fade away. All in all, you will certainly feel great satisfaction after a sip and may have to exercise restraint before taking big refreshing gulps. Remember that it is an alcoholic drink!

The next stage in the winemaking process is cold filtering, and the wines are blended, including a little Merlot to create the perfect blush color. It is then bottled. It is worth bearing in mind that Yellow Tail Pink Moscato is a modern form of the classic Moscato style, these low alcohol wines are usually aimed at the younger end of the market.

Yenda, in New South Wales, is where the winery and production facilities are located. This particular region is on the eastern side of Australia where the wine-growing conditions are superb.
