Moscato, LLANO ESTACADO, American

Llano Moscato is a wine made in the tradition of the classic Piedmonte wines with a special Texas accent.  Just as in Italy, Llano Moscato is crafted from the Moscato Bianco (White Muscat) grape.  In the tradition of Alessandria and Cuneo, States in Piedmonte, Italy.   This wine was produced at Llano Estacado Winery from grapes and juice grown in Texas, New Mexico and California.  And, in the true Spirit of Texas, they have chosen to label this exciting, wine with a picture of one of Texas' most beloved wildflowers...Texas Bluebonnets.

  • Key-Lime
  • Honeysuckle
  • Green Grapes
  • Ripe Peach Nuances
This wines expressive aromatics and taste of sweetness comes from the grape and a special process known as "stopped-fermentation".  Through this process the winemaker is able to retain the natural sweetness and flavor of the grape along with a touch of "frizzante" (effervescence).  Llano Moscato is low in alcohol (10.0%) and retains small amounts of natural sugar and CO2 from primary fermentation.
Llano Estacado opened  in 1976 with the semingly simple mission to embody the fabulous potential of Texas wine. They began with 1,300 cases of wine releases in 1977 and have grown and improved to reach market sales of approximately 170,000 cases annually. Their continued growth with new ideas, new innovations, new wines and new technology, all combining to create a synergy that continues to propel Llano Estacado to the forefront -- where it remains as the best selling Premium Winery in Texas.
