Wine Reviews Stag’s Hollow Muscat Frizzante Brut 2018, British Columbia

Amazing. This light, bright, gently fizzy white goes where few wines dare. It would seem to be modelled after moscado d’Asti, the fragrant, grapey-floral, delicate dessert wine of Italy’s Piedmont region. Yet it’s drier, at a respectably moderate 13.6 grams/litre of residual sugar, yet no less satisfying. Clearly the sunny Okanagan could teach Piedmont a lesson. Essentially off-dry, it comes across with a burst of fruity flavour that suggests white table grape, mandarin orange and green apple, with a perfect level of fizz. Available direct, Stagshollowwinery.com.
