Sparkling Wine from Australia - Victoria
Review Date : 05-Jul-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim, the bubbles fine and persistent. The nose is very elegant, but intense and penetrating with aromas of white stonefruits and florals, along with suggestions of fresh herbs, apples and nuts. The aromatics possesses clarity and purity. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a fine and moderately taut core with flavours of white stonefruits and apples with an amalgam of florals, herbs and nuts at the core. The flavours show good depth and the mouthfeel is soft with a gentle mousse, revealing a little phenolic texture as they carry to a delicately nuanced, lingering finish. This is a taut and intense Prosecco with good depth of stonefruit and apple flavours, gentle mousse and mouthfeel, and a delicate finish. Serve as an anytime sparkling over the next 2 years. Prosecco fruit from the ‘Bankside’ vineyard, King Valley, made by the Charmat method, fermented to 11.5% alc. and 13 g/L residual sugar, at 5 atmosphere pressure. Winemaker: Geoff Alexander.

The bouquet is fresh, softly full and gently packed with clean and subtle stonefruit and mineral notes, revealing floral honeysuckle and nutty elements in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, light, frothy effervescence lifts the light stonefruit flavours. The wine follows a light, phenolic, dry and chalky line and the mouthfeel features thirst-quenching acidity. This is refreshing and the wine carries to a dry, textural finish with some length.
