91 points "Sweet, and low in alcohol, the 2005 Moscato Brilliant Disguise is a noteworthy imitation of a top-notch Piedmontese Moscato. With 6.5% alcohol, a slight spritziness, and a touch of residual sugar, it is the ideal frothy aperitif wine. Beautiful aromas of tropical fruits and honeysuckle emerge from this crisp, refreshing, light-bodied white. However, these wines deteriorate quickly, so enjoy it over the next 6-9 months. This brilliant operation is a credit to the meticulous winemaking of Michael Twelftree and his staff!" Best 2005-2006
rated (2007 vintage, 750ml bottle) : April 15, 2008 , Winemaker's notes
"Tasting Notes -- Colour -- Almost translucent, very pale straw -- Aroma -- Lifted aromas of musk and floral notes immediately leap from the bouquet. Fruit characters of pear, peach, banana and pineapple backing up the zestful appeal. -- Palate -- The palate has immediate appeal, balancing weight and texture - long and lean with the right degree of residual sugar and acidity, cleaning the palate for the next mouthful. -- Winemaking -- Made from 100% White Frontignac ( Muscat), it is always the first variety to be picked and the first wine to be bottled from a vintage. The essence of the Moscato style is in maintaining freshness, it is pressed, fermented, filtered, and bottled in quick succession. -- Brilliant Disguise Moscato Selection Criteria -- The fruit comes from 80 to 100 year old white frontignac vines grown in the Barossa Valley, South Australia. Once a victim of fashion, Moscato wines are now saving this variety from certain extinction in Australia. -- Food suggestion -- Serve chilled. An extremely versatile wine that is ideal as an aperitif, or the perfect palate cleanser with fresh fruits and/or lighter desserts. Works well with tangy, salty cheese such as feta or a young goat’s cheese."
