Two Hands Brilliant Disguise Moscato (500ML) 2007
Muscat from Barossa Valley , Barossa , Australia
Made from 100% White Frontignac sourced from 80 and 100 year old vines, Brilliant Disguise is a mere 6.5% alcohol and delicately sweet. This wine is fun and refreshing to drink with an amazingly versatile style that makes for a great aperitif particularly when served with a tangy salty cheese such as feta or young goat's cheese. It's also the perfect palate cleanser with fresh fruits and dessert.
Almost translucent, very pale straw
Delicious aromas of guava with an aromatic grapey musk perfume
Delicately sweet with a gentle spritz. Incredibly refreshing and light bodied with lively exotic tropical fruit flavors and a hint of musk and rose petal.

The Wine Advocate - "The only non-red table wine in the extensive lineup is the 2007 Moscato "Brilliant Disguise". A dead-ringer for a top Moscato d’Asti, it has attractive floral and honey aromas, a light-body, crisp, off-dry flavors, and excellent length. It is an ideal aperitif for a hot summer day but it should be drunk within its first year of release. "
International Wine Cellar - "Pale silver. Spicy orange, white peach, pear and quince on the nose, with a deeper suggestion of mango. Dry and crisp, but with a load of exotic and pit fruit flavors. This is quite firm compared to most Moscato d'Asti bottlings, perhaps because it was picked with 10 g/l of acidity. Finishes on a brisk, stony pear note, with excellent length. "

About Barossa ValleyView a map of Barossa Valley wineries
The Barossa zone consists of two sections - the Barossa Valley and the Eden Valley. Wines from the Eden Valley can be labelled Barossa or Barossa Valley.
Situated just a bit east of the large city of Adelaide, Barossa is Australia's wine headquarters. Mega producers are based here, boutique wineries call it home and a majority of the habitants claim their income on the wine industry. The valley is strewn with a series of hamlets, small towns spotted throughout the region.
Barossa ValleyBarossa is red-wine territory, with red grapes consisting of about two-thirds of the region's plantings. The reds, Shiraz in particular, are lauded for their rich, concentrated flavors and aging potential. Old vines of Shiraz and Grenache are popular, many up to 80 years old. The valley is home to some of the most famous vineyards of Australia - this is where the first Penfolds Grange was made. Whites are also found, mainly from the Semillon grape – these wines are as full-bodied as the reds although harder to find. Riesling and Chardonnay are also planted.
Eden ValleyRight next to Barossa Valley, but a bit higher in elevation, Eden Valley is an ideal neighbor. Many wineries source vineyards from both areas as the climate difference in Eden Valley leads to wines of a different character. Reds are still mainly Shiraz and Grenache, but the wines are often more restrained and less dense than those in the Barossa Valley. Whites are popular here too. Eden Valley Rieslings and Semillons are particularly excellent.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
