2009 Jacobs Creek Sparkling Moscato – Review

By Duane Pemberton
Winery website: http://www.jacobscreek.us

Few wines scream summertime refreshment like bubbly and even fewer wash back picnic-friendly foods like fried chicken, hot dogs and potato salad than pink-ones.

All the way from Australia, this 2009 Jacob’s Creek has the right combination of bubbles, dryness and flavor profile to make most any summertime picnic or bbq a memorable one.

Technical Data:

  • Alcohol: 9%
  • TA: 9.0% alc/vol.
  • ph: 3.06
  • Price: $13

Nose: Super light notes of pears, melon, strawberry and sour cherry coming through for me. I also get nice notes of white and pink peppercorns with a bit of what nerds candy smells like.

Taste: This wine reminds me of a semi-sweet fruit salad that had someone pour some club soda into it. It’s light, fresh, not too sweet and has a good sense of balance that makes this one of the most refreshing summertime wines I can think of. Love the combination of bubbles, fruit and finish.

W.E.P. Rating: 120%
