Mistletoe Winery, a 5.5-hectare boutique vineyard and James Halliday 5 star rated winery on Hermitage Road in Pokolbin, is a small family-owned winery producing some of the most respected and awarded wines, fortified wines, dessert wines and sparkling wines in the Hunter Valley.
Now in its 30th year of operation, Mistletoe’s “no compromise” approach to producing “true to origin” premium quality wines, has seen it receive hundreds of awards and accolades.
Christmas is, perhaps, the most special time of year at Mistletoe Wines, as it sees the release of their popular Christmas Cheer Mozcato.
Unlike the excessive sweetness of many commercial Moscato’s, this one has an exquisite perfumed floral musk bouquet, with crisp tropical fruit flavours on the palate, and a beautiful balance of sweetness and acidity. Plus, the festive packaging makes it the perfect gift or ideal to take to those last-minute Christmas get-togethers.
But the Mozcato is not the only festive bubbly on offer at this renowned winery. See our picks on the right for all your holiday celebrations.
Mistletoe Winery is a very unique and special place, and once you are there, you will see why visitors to Wine Country return time and time again – especially at this time of the year. Cheers!
Mistletoe Méthode Traditionelle Petillant 2014
A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes that were grown in the cool climate Hilltops wine region of South West New South Wales. The juice was barrel fermented and matured for 20 weeks in older French oak barriques, before being disgorged after nearly two years "en tirage". This is a virtually bone dry aperitif style which is perfect for festive season drinking and right through the warmer months.
Mistletoe Christmas Cheer Mozcato 2019
This sparkling wine is the same wine as the 2019 Hunter Valley Mozcato but is especially dressed up ready for Christmas and the Festive Season and makes a superb gift. This is a beautifully fragrant, full of flavour, bubbly but not too gassy and not too sweet like most commercial Moscatos. A great drink for the warmer weather and perfect for that Christmas gift.
Mistletoe Petillant Rosé 2019
In the same mould of the past eleven vintages, this is a very popular Sparkling Rosé that tastes like strawberries and has a minimal sweetness on the front of the palate but finishes lovely and clean. This is an easy-drinking aperitif style that also goes well with Asian food. Serve chilled.
