"Character, freshness, drinkability and texture. There’s plenty to hang onto here. Buckets of apples, a general yeastiness, citrus and pears. Grippy in the good way. A bit cider-y. Good." Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front
“Joins the growing crowd of col fondo-style (with lees) proseccos. Combines both savouriness, citrus brightness and texture, making it a particularly good match with a range of savoury-inspired dishes (especially chicken). Cloudy in colour, brisk in bubble with nutty, yeasty bread dough, preserved lemon and apple aromas. Races across the palate in citrus, green apple, oatmeal, chalky lemon flavours. Top summer drinking.” Jeni Port, Halliday
VINEYARD REGION: Alpine Valleys
THE WINE: This col fondo prosecco displays a glistening green hue. The natural effervescence lifts aromas of crispy fresh apples, meadow hay, guava, pears and creamy soft yeasty undertones. The flavours are much more intense than you’d expect with layers of honey, poached pears, walnuts, citrus and granny smith apples.
Our Col Fondo Prosecco is fermented in bottle on its original lees which you will see settled at the bottom of the bottle, creating flavours much more intense than you’d expect. We like standing the bottle in the fridge for 2 hours prior to pouring to settle the lees and recommend decanting or pouring the Prosecco whilst leaving the lees in the bottle for a crisp, fresh beverage. You can also try the prosecco with the lees stirred in to enjoy the soft, yeasty undertones to find your preferred style
FOOD MATCHES: A great accompaniment to oysters, seafood linguine or veal bone marrow tartare.
