And while almost all of the bottles he sampled were ‘truly awful’ he had glowing reviews for Australia’s Yellowtail - which retails for between $8 and $10 from Liquorland, BWS and First Choice Liquor.
Writes Dave: ‘I did have one very pleasant surprise, and it came from a mass-produced label I never thought I’d mention favourably in this column.
‘From Australia, Yellow Tail Moscato apparently is new (at least, it’s labeled “NEW!”), and it is quite clean and tasty, with bright, refreshing fizz and just enough sweetness to support its fruit.
‘It doesn’t really taste like moscato d’Asti: It’s more tropical, with mango and durian flavours. But ... it is hands down the best cheap moscato available.
‘So if you want to try moscato and you’re on a tight budget, try the Yellow Tail.’
We just might do that, Dave! Thanks for the tip ...
