The Brachetto grapes were gently pressed to get the juice off the skins, which reduces the phenolic and enhances the beautiful aromatic varietal characters. To keep the wine as fresh as possible it was fermented until it reached 5.5% alcohol, to retain strong aromatics and sweetness. The wine was then bottled under pressure to maintain a nice level of fizz to tickle the tongue and keep it zingy.
Fermentation vessel: stainless steel

Traditionally a dessert wine originating from the Asti region of Piedmont in Italy’s North, this fizzy blush coloured wine is the perfect accompaniment to something sweet or is delicious simply on its own. The nose is beautifully aromatic, showing rose water, musk, dried rose petals, and raspberry lemonade. The palate is intense and refreshingly sweet, it explodes in your mouth with fresh raspberries and strawberries and tickles with fresh lime; one mouthful and you will be refreshed!! Add mint, lime, ginger and ice, and enjoy in the sunshine.
