Variety Information
Prosecco: dry, lemony, and bubbling, is Italy's answer to refreshing, well-made, sparkling wine. Created from Prosecco grapes in the northern Veneto region of Italy in the foothills of the Alps; We plant Prosecco on the cool King Valley floor. Prosecco is light, affordable & fun.

Vinification 

The grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The juice was fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature of fourteen degrees Celsius. Once dry, the base wine had the lees stirred once a week for four months prior to bottling to give more texture and complexity to the back palate. To create the fizz the wine went through a second fermentation in pressurised tanks, known as the “charmat method”, this process took about four weeks, after which time the wine was bottled, ready to drink.

The Wine
This wine is a light straw colour with lime hues. The nose explodes from the glass with sweet sherbet, lemon, lime and jasmine aromas. The palate is creamy and refreshingly zingy with lemon, lime acidity. Apples and hints of ripe pear continue to entice the palate, with hints of vanilla. The wine has lovely length and softness, and playful bubbles, with a touch of sweetness but a long dry finish. Serve with Sydney rock oysters or lightly grilled scallops topped with lemon zest.
