“a unique, good-fun style” – Chrismont La Zona Prosecco

“In 2007 Arnie and Jo Pizzini planted the Italian white variety, prosecco, in their vineyard at Cheshunt, in Victoria’s King Valley. With it they emulate the light, delicate dry sparkling wines made with the variety in north-eastern Italy. La Zona starts as a still table wine matured on yeast lees for a few months before being blended with components from earlier vintages then undergoing a secondary fermentation in steel tanks. It’s a unique, good-fun style – pale, comparatively low in alcohol, at 11.5 per cent, and with a light, delicious, pleasant, intensely tart, dry palate.” Chris Shanahan, Good Food, www.goodfood.com.au, June 24, 2015
