De Bortoli Prosecco (King Valley, VIC)
Pale with green hues. It tastes of apple and pear with fresh pithy lemon, gentle creaminess, complete with the very fine bubbles that we call ‘bead’. Fruit is harvested in the cool of night to achieve a balance of fruit freshness and acidity. The wine is pressed and racked to stainless vats for fermentation. The wine is blended and the all important secondary fermentation begins that gives the final bubbles. This second fermentation gives creaminess and texture to the blend, before it is transferred under pressure, complete with bubbles, to bottle.
