G.D. Vajra Moscato d'Asti 2021 75cl 5.5% ABV
G.D. Vajra Moscato d'Asti, Piedmont, Italy
G.D. Vajra was established in 1972 and adheres to traditional winemaking methods, combined with new techniques, such as temperature-controlled fermentation, to produce such superbly elegant wines.
The Moscato grapes for this delicious sparkling wine are grown on vines planted between 1986 and 2007 at the top of an incredibly steep slope, 420 to 470 metres above sea level.
This Moscato d’Asti is pale yellow with green hues. It has a delicate fizz, which is both persistent and creamy. On the nose there are expressive aromas of sage and fresh yellow fruit such as apricots, peaches and exotic fruit followed by elderflower, pear and a hint of sage. A delicate, fine mousse refreshes and cleanses the palate. The balance between sweetness and freshness carries into a long, creamy finish.
Perfect as an aperitif or an excellent accompaniment to spicy dishes, such as a Thai curry, Cajun chicken or chilli con carne, or fruity desserts.
