Our tastes for Prosecco are evolving and and no longer are we asked just for 'Prosecco'. This is packaged in the clear retro-shaped bottle and as a vintage you know how fresh it is – freshness is important with Prosecco. It is also drier than many other Proseccos in the market. The fruit is sourced from the Astoria Estate vineyard "Val de Brun" in the rolling hills of Veneto just north of Venice in the heart of the DOCG zone Conegliano – Valdobbiadene. This has plenty going for it….
Very fine and persistent. Straw yellow in colour with greenish reflections. Floral aromas, along with generous amounts of pear and Golden Delicious apple. Creamy, full, and harmonious on the palate.

"Been avoiding prosecco because you think it’ll be too sweet? Well, fret no more, because here’s a crisp, citrus-laced spritz-fest in a bottle. This tangy example from Treviso shows lovely tension in the glass with a subtle lick of green apple and honey. At a positively demure 11% alcohol, it definitely won’t send you sideways — and it’s also absolutely divine with classic vanilla sponge cake. If you prefer something savoury, though, go for tempura-battered oysters drizzled with mignonette dressing!"
