The 2021 Prosecco Col Fondo is once again from the wonderful Box Grove Vineyard at Nagambie. Col Fondo, or ‘with the bottoms’ is a traditional sparkling wine method from northern Italy, that uses bottle fermentation and retention of the yeast sediment to give bubbles and texture. It will be naturally cloudy, and the better for it!
The 2021 Season was unusually cool compared to the last decade of warmth, and that delayed ripening and preserved much needed acidity, giving crispness and freshness to the wine. You can stand it up in the fridge and allow it to settle clear, or you can shake it (lightly) to get the full yeasty complexity.
Sulphite-free, cloudy Fizz made from the traditional Glera grape.
