T’Gallant haven’t updated their website for a while, so if you look at it, you’re going to view their old packaging for the Moscato. Now I remember trying it and being impressed with balance structure and good flavours of rosewater and lavender. The packaging was also quality with the Shakesperian quote on the label “Lost is all the time not spent in love.” The re-release now sees a squatter, more traditional Prosecco bottle and embossed labelling. The bard is gone, however.
T’Gallant, Pink Moscato, Mornington Peninsula, NV
Watermelon pink. The nose brings strawberry, light musk sticks and red apple pulp. The palate brings more of the same, but not quite as overt as some Moscatos. The lavender note I recalled from the previous iteration is still there, along with some crisp refreshing acidity. If you can call a Moscato restrained, then this could be that, but a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
