Expert Reviews

90 Points - Jeremy OliverFloral and creamy, long and crackly; vivacious pear, peach and apple with suggestions of almonds extend with refreshing acidity and a crunchy effervescence.
Ned Goodwin - Halliday's Wine CompanionFermented in tank and bottled under pressure to preserve a frothy, insouciant goodness, this is a bubble bath of apple, pear and baking spice flavours in the mouth.

How's it taste?

This wine is a light straw colour with lime hues. The nose explodes from the glass with sweet sherbet, lemon, lime and jasmine aromas. Yeasty and earthy characters add complexity, with added brioche notes. The palate is creamy and refreshing zingy with lemon, lime acidity. The wine has lovely length and softness with a touch of sweetness but a long dry finish.

How was it made?

The grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The juice was fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature of fourteen degrees Celsius.  Once dry, the base wine had the lees stirred once a week for four months prior to bottling to give more texture and complexity to the back palate. To create the fizz the wine went through a second fermentation in pressurised tanks, known as the “charmat method”, this process took about four weeks, after which time the wine was bottled, ready to drink.

Who made it?

Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini built Pizzini Wines based on their passions and their commitment to family and Pizzini’s Italian heritage. Their winemaking dream began in 1978 when they planted their first vines, then in 1994 their first wine under the Pizzini label was produced.

Today their four adult children Natalie, Joel, Carlo and Nicole all work in the business alongside Alfredo and Katrina, with Joel taking the reins as chief winemaker.
