ONE TO NOTE: GOOD news for bubbly buffs who don't like having to wait for some special occasdion or event to pop the cork, Mistletoe Wines in the Hunter Valley have released a Sparkling Mozcato for virtually anytime enjoyment – because it has less than half the normal alcohol strength at just 5.8%.
Made from Mistletoe's own-vineyard Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains (arguably the world's greatest Muscat grape cultivar, and used in Italy for making Moscato D'asti,) this one's spelt Mozcato in deference to the oz for Australia.
With lovely crisp and fizzy tropical fruit flavours on the palate and not excessively sweet, its available cellar-door only at $22 a bottle, with discounts for 6- and 12-bottle buys. Hop onto www.mistletoewines.com.au
 CRISP, fizzy, not overly sweet – and with discounts for 6- and 12-bottle packs online.
