You know that when a grape variety or a wine style appears under a Jacob's Creek label it has jumped the fence from niche to mainstream. So with bottles of Jacob's Creek moscato lurking in bottleshop fridges across the country, I think we can safely say that this sweet, spritzy style is here to stay. Moscato is a great wine to have on hand during summer: as well as being a deliciously refreshing, fun drink on its own, it's also the best accompaniment to fruity, lighter desserts such as this trifle. Modelled on the gently sherbety moscato style popular in the north-west of Italy, the best Australian examples benefit from our advanced cool-fermentation techniques and our heritage of working with fruit from old muscat vineyards.The light alcohol (around 5 to 8 per cent) doesn't clash with any flavours or textures in the dessert, the sweetness of the wine can cope with the sugar without being cloying, and the sherbety fizz helps clean the palate. Pink moscatos have more fruit weight and flavour intensity than white moscatos thanks to the inclusion of red wine (or some contact with the skins of darker-coloured muscat grapes during fermentation), and this oomph is just what you need to match the richer flavour of the berries.
