Having emigrated to Australia from central Italy, they continue the Italian tradition of making spicy pork sausages, year-long cured prosciutto and strongly flavoured salted cod at their McLaren Vale home. The vineyard covers 40 acres and most of the root stocks are over 40 years old.
Produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, grown on the family home block in McLaren Vale. The nose displays lifted aromas of tropical fruit and citrus with hints of yeast. This is a fresh wine on the palate with vibrant tropical fruit characters. Hints of yeast and balancing crisp acidity complete this wine perfect for any celebration. Drink very chilled now with friends.
For Pat and Vicky Vasarelli, the pairing of food and wine is as much of an art as their lively marriage.
Serve this wine as an aperifif or with a selection of lightly grilled seafood or canapés.
Drink now with friends. Remember to serve this sparkling well chilled. Delicious with freshly chucked south Australian oysters and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
