The colour is bright and vibrant with a youthful green hue.
The nose shows lifted granny smith apple and pear notes along with a citrus undertone.
The wine’s tight natural acidity from the cool climate fruit make it perfect for drinking young while at its light and delicate best.
These grapes are selected from the best parcels of fruit from our Banksdale vineyard, which is perched on a ridge at 485m above sea level. The fruit was harvested in mid February at baumé levels ranging from 9.9° to 10.1°.
After primary fermentation the wine was then fermented in a pressure tank to 5 atmospheres of pressure and bottled to retain the bubbles. The Prosecco was bottled with an alcohol of 11.5%, a pH of 3.3 and an acid level of 5.0g/L.
Recommended food pairings:
The 2016 Vintage Prosecco is so fresh and crisp that it is a great drink on its own to kick off an evening. Try Prosecco with oysters and prawns or a lightly battered piece of whiting.
