Prosecco has to be THE TOP SUMMER DRINK. And for Australian examples you just can't go past the fantastic wines from De Bortoli in the King Valley. This little number is not only the sexiest package around but the wine in the bottle is just as good with its delicate, elegant package. It's Champagne quality at a fraction of the price.
The King Valley
Australia’s natural home for Prosecco. Many families originated from Northern Italy where the Prosecco grapes are indigenous. Ideal climate and breathtaking scenery at the base of Victoria’s snowfields.
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.
Pale with green hues. Fruit-driven with hints of green apple and wisteria. It tastes of apple and pear with fresh pithy lemon, gentle creaminess, complete with the very fine bubbles that we call ‘bead’.
