Dry, floral, grapey, a hint doughy and with a fair bit of fizz to it. This wine is a stunning aperitif. Would be great with a wide range of canapés and especially lovely with oysters. Don’t age it, don’t look for lots of complexity, just enjoy the fresh, light and crisp simplicity.
King Valley – A picturesque region near Victoria’s snow fields that offers cooler climate wines. A strong Italian heritage in the area means there are a lot of Italian varieties grown.
Prosecco – Is the name of the region and grape variety used to make it in Italy. By using the cheaper charmat method to make the wines and in recent times pushing up the quality, the Italians have cornered the ‘poor person’s Champagne’ market. Look out of the variety to change name to Glera in the next few years.
