Bottega Prosecco Rose

Il Vino dei Poeti Prosecco Rosé is made from a blend of Glera and Pinot Noir.
Light ruby-red semi-sparkling wine with intense blackberry, violet and berry aromas; crisp, lively palate with persistent aftertaste, fruity and deliciously smooth.

Purple garnet colour with a bouquet of cherry and dark plum fruit, and subtle spice and oak notes. A medium-bodied, fruit-forward Merlot with moderate drying tannins [the tannins will soften through late 2021]. Flavours of plum and cherry are dusted with cocoa powder. The finish shows notes of black tea, pomegranate, cocoa powder, cherry, and a touch of mocha.
Thirty Bench Winemaker’s Riesling 2019 VQA
Clear and bright with a clean fresh aroma of Meyer lemon, tangerine, golden kiwi, starfruit, mineral and wet stone. A light, fresh and fruity Riesling. A medium-dry, refreshing wine with juicy flavours of sweet citrus, green apple and pineapple. Mouth-watering notes of citrus, white currant and green apple, along with site specific minerality, linger on the fresh, clean finish. Summer in a glass.
Trius Red The Icon 2019 VQA
Bright garnet in colour with a lovely bouquet of ripe black currant, blackberry, black cherry, spice box, dried tobacco, and a touch of cigar box. A medium to full-bodied red wine with soft yet drying tannins, good structure, and fruit forward flavours of black currant and blackberry accented by vanilla and spice notes. Dark fruits, suggesting blueberry, black currant, and blackberry, with a touch of vanilla and black tea, linger beautifully on the finish.
Peller Family Reserve Chardonnay VQA
Clear and bright with a straw yellow hue and a bouquet of red apple, pear, golden kiwi, and a touch of oak. A light to medium-bodied, smooth, easy-drinking Chardonnay. Flavours of pear, honeydew melon, and a hint of oak glide across the palate. The smooth finish has flavours of yellow apple and pear fruit, accented by spice, oak, custard, and caramel.
