This medium-bodied wine has plenty of supple fruit, soft tannins and is designed to be enjoyed in its youth.
Montevecchio Moscato 2016$24.00Montevecchio Moscato is made from 100% Moscato Giallo, a superior moscato selection imported by Chalmers from northern Italy.

It balances sweetness, acidity and alcohol perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.
