BAROSSA’S FIRST SPARKLING PROSECCO

5th Release

Prosecco is the traditional sparkling wine of Veneto in northern Italy. Unlike Champagne, Prosecco is made using the Martinotti /Charmat method, which is tank fermented as opposed to bottle fermented which gives its aperitif (before food) origin of lively freshness.

Reviews

Huon Hooke Sept 2020

The colour is pale and it has a vigorous froth of bubbles, smelling fresh and pear-like, grapy and scrupulously clean. Mercifully, it’s not as sweet as many proseccos but is balanced and refreshing, and eminently quaffable.

The Wine front – Gary Walsh June 20202

It bursts through the mouth, has no hard edges, feels clean and lively, delivers flavour and a small amount of baked goods, some white flowers and vanilla, gentle fizz and finishes clean, precise, flinty and long. It doesn’t choke going for complexity; it’s just a bloody delicious glass of fizz, packed with energy and verve.
