De Bortoli Wines has combined the two growth categories of prosecco and pink drinks to launch its latest wine, Prosecco Rosé.
De Bortoli’s up-and-coming fourth genner and Assistant Winemaker, Kate Webber, says Prosecco Rosé is a serious bubbly but is still the life of the party.
“This Prosecco Rosé is quite textural with the pink colour coming from a small addition of Pinot Noir and is a great addition to our Prosecco range.
“Over summer it has been a popular wine with friends and family and a great way to kick off the afternoon with a game of Finska under the Banksias. We even mixed it with orange gin and soda for a festive touch.”
Prosecco continues to grow in popularity as it is seen as an affordable and approachable wine that is suitable to all types of occasions.
De Bortoli said that fruit for this wine has been harvested in the cool of the night, to help achieve a balance of fruit freshness and acidity. The wine is pressed and racked into stainless vats for fermentation before the secondary ferment which brings creaminess and texture, as well as bubbles to the wine.
Ready to drink now or over the next 18 months the new wine is available now at independent bottle shops and De Bortoli’s online shop, with a $17.99 RRP.
