The Real Review  - Huon Hooke - 14.03.2021
" Light, bright pink colour with a slight tint of purple and a thick foam of bubbles. The aroma is fresh and clean and fruity with a strongly muscat-like grapy scent. It's fizzy and frothy and gently sweet in the mouth, with attractive simple muscat fruit flavour of some intensity and length. An excellent example of a pink moscato style. 90/100 "

" PETIT MOSCATO FRIZZANTE- Wow what a smashing celebratory drink. Alluring aromas of lemons & nectarines, nice sweetness on the palate that flows all the way through without cloying, slightly fizzy & uber moreish! at 7% alcohol you can enjoy an extra glass! "

" De Bortoli Petit Moscato Frizzante - Of all Australian states, Victoria has had the toughest time in the COVID-19 crisis - so it is great to bring some happy vinous tidings from down south. This fun fizz is made from Rutherglen muscat petit grains grapes, which also make that region’s world-famous muscat fortifieds. This non-vintage, bulk tank fermented bubbly is pale salmon pink and lightly effervescent in the glass. It displays ginger beer scents and sweet strawberry flavour on the front palate. Red apple, sherbet and gunmetal characters come through on the middle palate and jelly bean and slatey acid elements combine at the finish. Drink now with a salad of king prawns with avocado and orange dressing. 4 stars. "

" A Bottle of fun dripping in crowd-pleasing appeal. The good folk at @debortoliWines suggest this is, "Perfect for dressing up a garden party or any occasion with your closest girlfriends." That pretty much sums it up."

" Pale coral/salmon colour and lightly frizzante (sparkling).  Lifted and potent aromas of rosewater, musk, pink salt, strawberry sorbet and pink peppercorn. Concentrated mousse that blooms over a balanced near-plush/silky palate of sweet fruit, crisp acidity and a savoury salty offset. A medium tail of flavour length. Certainly reaches its lofty ambition."
