The McGuigan family have been growing grapes in New South Wales since 1880, when Owen McGuigan started making wine in order to supplement his income as a dairy farmer. These days, they have a portfolio of more than 60 o wines and export to 20 countries.

This low-alcohol white is amongst their newest wines, and it has to be said that it’s one of the best in the 0.5% ABV category. It’s one of a pair with a rosé, and they’re both excellently presented. The design of both bottles makes you think straightaway of long summers, picnics and barbeques. And if you look carefully enough at the pattern of leaves, butterflies and flowers on the label, they form a face, which is kind of clever.

This Moscato is a little sweet, and you’ll have to decide for yourself if it’s too sweet for you. Some of our taste testers loved it; others went off to look for something a bit drier.

Both the white and the rosé are on sale exclusively in Marks & Spencer at the moment, where they sit alongside Benjamin Truffer’s Sparkling Muscato. Both retail for £5, which is quite expensive for an alcohol-free wine, and it’s clear that the producers are aiming for the top end of the market.
