Wine Blogging Wednesday #28


The theme for December’s WBW, hosted by Culinary Fool, is sparklers. A perfect theme, considering it’s summer over here in the Southern Hemisphere, and this summer, you will hopefully find me at any spare moment, on a deck chair with a generous glass of this in my hand : a 2006 Two Hands Brilliant Disguise Moscato.

I was introduced to this gorgeous fizzy little wine fairly recently and since then have been keen to let other people know about it. Pale to clear coloured and made from the white frontignac grape, it comes from the Barossa Valley in South Australia – a region reknowned for it’s wines (Jacob’s Creek and Wolf Blass being among the larger, more well known producers) and Maggie Beer’s Pheasant Farm. At 6.5% alc/vol, it’s a light, fun drink that’s not overly sweet and pairs really well with fruits like mango, lychees, honeydew and muskmelon.

When you’ve just come home from a long day at work, battling the crowds on the train and it’s so hot, the back of your shirt has been sticking to you all day, you’ll be glad to have a bottle of this waiting for you in the fridge!

    Thanks for participating in this month’s WBW! This wine sounds very refreshing! I’m going to have to see if I can find it around Seattle. I love light wines that are perfect for sitting on the deck and sipping!

    Happy Holidays
