Colterenzio Pfefferer Moscato Giallo 2017

"An interesting bottle of wine from the hills of Italy, made from a grape youve probably never heard of. Moscato Giallo, or Gold Muscat is one of the lesser-known members of the Muscat family and is usually found in the north-eastern region of Italy. Pfefferer Moscato Giallo is a clone of this grape, named for its more peppery notes. It’s an interesting bottle to try, chilled down, as an aperitif. There are notes of stone fruit and nashi pear, as well as lemon and that hint of pepper (almost sweet like cardamom, not savoury!) on the finish. Try it and let us know what you think!" - 17/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel

An excellent aperitif for the warmer months with delicate fruit aromas reminiscent of Muscat. An elegant palate with zesty grapefruit, lots of freshness and a dry finish.

The wine Pfefferer is named after the Pfefferer grape, a particular variety of the Muscat grape that in the Alto Adige dialect has always been called Pfefferer. Probably because the spicy aroma is reminiscent of pepper, since Pfeffer in German means pepper.
