Prosecco 2016

Delicate dry sparkling wine and fitting addition to the Italian inspired Freeman portfolio.

TASTING NOTES
FREEMAN Prosecco 2016 displays a persistent fine dry, creamy effervescence and classic citrus and pear aromas. Soft and sprightly on the palate with flavours of crunchy pear complemented by a smidge of creamy yeast complexity and delicate acidity. Refreshes to the very last sip….

WINEMAKING
The grapes are picked early and gently pressed prior to the initial fermentation in stainless steel vats. Barrel fermentation and lees stirring contributes complexity and creamy texture, prior to the secondary fermentation – known as the Martinotti  – or more commonly Charmat method, creating a dry, vivacious style that mirrors its European origins.
