If you have not jumped onto the Prosecco bandwagon yet, it’s time you did because this Italian sparkling style is going to become a popular fixture with Australian drinkers. It’s a cracking style to kick off an evening, light, fresh with bubbly intensity with or without food. Pizzini in the King Valley have mastered the style. It kicks off with a lemony yeastiness with hints of white flowers and rewards with a chalky, citrus palate that has plenty of length.
A blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Grigio. Intensely aromatic, the nose shows lychee, white petal flowers, lemon blossom and tropical nuances. The aromatics flow to the palate, it finishes with zesty, tangy acidity.
