Vinea Marson | Prosecco | 2019
Funky orange and yellow fruit, plush and generous palate filled with tangy yellow star fruit and feels like a sparkling wine with turbo-charged fruit and less like 'just-another-prosecco'. This is a great drop from Vinea marson.
"It begins with ripe pear, fresh green apples and subtle notes of lemon pith and flowers on the nose. The palate expresses the crisp acidity of zesty lemon, nutty flavours and a yeasty complexity. Its rich mouth-feel concludes with a hint of bitterness and saltiness that cries out for a plate of antipasto." Vinea Marson
There’s a Friulian saying that best encapsulates the viticultural and winemaking philosophy embraced at Vinea Marson – sans, onest e lavoradors – strong, honest and hardworking.
This love of wine extends further afield, or closer to home depending on your view, as Mario sources indigenous northern Italian varieties Malvasia d’Istria, Friulano, Picolit and Pinot Bianco from fruit grown at Porepunkah in the Alpine Valleys of north-eastern Victoria. With its cool climate and soil minerality, this area is the perfect site for Mario to explore his north eastern Italian winemaking heritage.
Made using Méthode traditionelle | Alpine valley fruit | One month on lees prior to disgorgement | Mostly Glera grape with a splash of Pinot bianco | 9 g/L dosage | 11% abv | 750 ml

Pristine and chalky, with an appealing bouquet of apple, pear and lime juice lifted by creamy suggestions of fresh white flowers. It’s smooth, elegant and creamy, with a pristine of enticing fruit that becomes nutty and savoury towards it’s crisp, marginally sweet but refreshing finish.
