by Wines By Cellars

$190.00 GST Included

AUSTRALIA WIDE SHIPPING INCLUDED

A fun Italian style sparkling with a lemony, dry finish. The nose explodes from the glass with sherbet, citrus and jasmine aromas. Yeasty and earthy characters add complexity. The palate is creamy and refreshing zingy with lemon, lime acidity.

The grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The juice was fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature of fourteen degrees Celsius. Once dry, the base wine had the lees stirred once a week for four months prior to bottling to give more texture and complexity to the back palate. To create the fizz the wine went through a second fermentation in pressurised tanks, known as the “charmat method”.

Description

Pizzini are makers of Italian wine varieties and are based in King Valley, Victoria. The King Valley has established itself as the home of Italian grape varieties in Australia.

The shallow, rocky soils on the gently undulating slopes make perfect sites for Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. While the more fertile zones along the valley floor leading to the King River grow fragrant Brachetto and crisp Prosecco. The wines are made by Joel Pizzini, the vineyards managed by Alfred Pizzini.

Today Alfredo and Katrina’s four adult children Natalie, Joel, Carlo and Nicole all work in the business alongside them.
