Kaleidoscope hues of amber and gold, packed with lush raisined fruit flavours and intense aromas of rose petal and candied peel. This younger style of muscat is far more food-friendly than the much older fortified wines. Its freshness and lift make it a great match for all sorts of desserts. It can even be served chilled or drizzled over French Vanilla ice cream.

"This was a collaboration wine in the truest sense. It was our first go at a low alcohol, off-dry wine and we are amazed at the outcome. After being handpicked and whole bunch pressed, the clear juice was fermented at low temperatures before being arrested prior to dryness at which point we had arrived at the perfect balance between natural acidity and sweetness."
Pair with Asian foods and with cheese and fruit platters. Best consumed nice and cold during the summer months. This wine doubles up as a starter and a finisher to a long lazy meal. For something a little different, try adding ice cubes and a couple of mint leaves. Bellissimo!
Excitement levels high are high at Wine Brothers HQ for this wine! This wine oooooozes summer (AKA Hong Kong for 10 months of the year). Sweet, spritzy and loads of fun.
Chances are this wine is not similar to anything you currently drink (hold on, don't stop reading now just yet, just because it's different, it does not make it wrong...).The naturally occurring spritz and sweetness in this Australian white wine are enhanced by the refreshing crisp acidity on the palate. Moscato is a wonderful anytime-in-summer drink and accompanies fresh fruits and desserts very well.
FROM THE WINEMAKER
The spritz and the sweetness are both naturally occurring in this wine. After harvesting, crushing and pressing, the juice ferments. This fermentation is carried out by yeast that consumes the sugar and produces alcohol and carbon dioxide gas. The ferment is then stopped just over half way through, and kept really cold. By doing this, some of the sugar remains, the wine is low in alcohol and lots of carbon dioxide is produced.
Our Rutherglen region Moscato is a cheeky alternative to Sparkling Wine or Champagne as an apperitif, and is the perfect partner to lightly spiced dishes. With wonderful sweet grapey flavour it is best to drink whilst spritzy and young. It is also the perfect partner to light blue cheese styles.
JC SCORE 8/10
A great wine for what it was intended for. Low-fizz, low alcohol white wine has its place. Moscato has its place. Will be enjoyed by those that like this style - go your hardest.View full product details
Oozing sunshine and afternoon fun, this particularly crisp rosé belongs in your every-day fridge (and not just a bar fridge). A very contemporary drop that calls for spontaneity with mates.
FROM THE WINEMAKER
A modern, fresh and vibrant wine, this Rosé has avours of strawberries, raspberries and summer fruits. Throw in an ice bucket to drink chilled for a crisp dry finish.

The team at 5OS rarely, if ever, let us down. They love pushing the boundaries and putting together a portfolio of unique wines. This wine is unique enough in conception (a kitchen sink full of varieties), however, came out the other end with a pretty respectable look about it. Typical 5OS...
FROM THE WINEMAKER
Just starting to look its age, and all the better for it. Musky, Fronti type aromas leap out of the glass, with a hint of aged Riesling character in amongst it all as well. I really like the viscosity of the palate, heaps of texture but there’s a citrus tartness that whips it back into shape just when it feels like it’s about to spread. Can’t imagine this jumps off the shelf, but in fairness it probably should. Should hang in there for a couple more years as well. Nice drink.
Give this wine something with a bit of substance to mix in with. Thinking white fish, maybe chicken.
