Happy birthday to my wine-partner in crime, Mr Spittoon.
It’s safe to say we started the celebrations early on the weekend and popped this lovely bottle of Pink Prosecco we were sent as a gift (thank you Grupetto Vino). It was the perfect accompaniment for pizza night.
So how is this Pink Prosecco made?
It is made from the Prosecco grape – Glera – grown in the south-west of NSW. It was done with minimal intervention, allowing its fruit characters to shine through with natural flavour, acidity and sweetness. A small amount of shiraz, around 2%, was added to give a light pink hue, adding complexity and complementing the fine bubble.
The Italian government recently agreed to Prosecco being made in a rosé style so its great to have an Aussie version just in time for summer! I can definitely see a fair few bottles of this being consumed in the sun.
From it’s pale peachy pink colour to notes of fruit toast and citrus on the nose, it’s smooth in the mouth with refreshing flavours of crunchy apple, fresh pear and a lick of juicy tropical fruits. Very thirst quenching and moreish.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
