Pizzini Prosecco Nv
1 or more bottles$21.49
This wine is a light straw colour with lime hues. The nose explodes from the glass with sweet sherbet, lemon, lime and jasmine aromas. The palate is creamy and refreshingly zingy with lemon, lime acidity. Apples and hints of ripe pear continue to entice the palate, with hints of vanilla. The wine has lovely length and softness, and playful bubbles, with a touch of sweetness but a long dry finish. Serve with Sydney rock oysters or lightly grilled scallops topped with lemon zest.

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.
Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.
Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.
With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.
The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.
The King Valley, or King River Valley is a wine-producing and agricultural region centred on the King River between Wangaratta and the Alpine National Park in the North East Victoria zone of the Australian state of Victoria.

About the brand Pizzini
Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini built Pizzini Wines based on their passions and their commitment to family and 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.
Pizzini's 170 acres of vineyard plantings span both the gentle slopes of the King Valley hills and the second terrace flats leading to the King River. The Pizzini vineyards have a well-drained north easterly aspect, with red volcanic soils containing decaying basalt on the slopes and gravelly, sandy clay loam soils on the second terrace. Riesling was the first variety planted in 1978, with Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc followed soon after. In the late 1980s, Alfredo began to experiment with Italian varietals Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. After establishing that the King Valley terroir was very well suited to Italian varietals, Alfredo planted Verduzzo, Arneis and Picolit.
Over the past decade, Alfredo and Joel (Joel being the head winemaker these days) have worked intensely with their land to identify sites that best suit particular grape varieties. They have grafted one variety to another in some areas and re-planted others with new varieties. The mosaic of vineyards created, each with its own unique characteristics produce exceptional fruit quality.
