The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

KIR CHEER PACK

$104.00 $90.00 Cellar Door

We’ve teamed up with the team at MARIONETTE to create a delicious Kir Cheer Pack. It’s an aperitif that we often enjoy and this one is the perfect pack for home-Kir-creation, with one of the best Cassis (super-dry) made anywhere in the world.

 

Whip together this classic French cocktail with all local ingredients. Pour 1 part Dry Cassis into a flute, top with 5 parts bubbles and you’ll have Victorian Kir Royals aplenty.

The pack contains:

2 X 2018 Prosecco Col Fondo

1 x Marionette Dry Cassis

Limited packs. Lock down price only.

 

500ML Marionette Dry Cassis 20%

Tarter than traditional cassis, Marionette Dry Cassis delivers the sweet plush flavours of ripe blackcurrants with around half the sugar content of the French original. This is balanced by an acidity that brings a refreshing zing to many classic cocktails. It’s Ribena for grown-ups! Champion Liqueur, Australian Distilled Spirits Awards 2018 & 2019

 

2018 Prosecco Col Fondo

We ferment the juice to dryness and then we take some fermenting wine and add it to complete the fermentation in the bottle. Getting the volume and sugar level right is crucial before we bottle it that same day. The sweeter wine continues to ferment creating the pressure and the bubbles in the bottle. Voila!

 

Somewhat similar to the French Pétillant Naturel, it finishes fermentation in the bottle and creates yeast sediment, which would be disgorged in Champagne, but we leave in the bottle giving it a cloudy appearance and some lovely texture and yeasty complexity. Sulphite free (other that whatever is naturally produced by the fermentation).
