Prosecco Col Fondo 2022

Prosecco Col Fondo 2022

Prosecco Col Fondo, which means ‘with its lees/sediment’, is one of our handmade originals and a bit of a cavedon wines classic! It’s a cloudy style prosecco and up there with one of our favourite ways of drinking the variety. It offers up more character & depth than the modern classic prosecco, but is still light, fun & easy drinking.

 

Think dry, cloudy ☁️ , lemon curd 🍋, honeysuckle 🌺 & sourdough 🥖.

 

Grown by us and made by Gabe using the traditional champagne method, col fondo is fermented in the bottle itself. It’s aged on its lees for 18 months before release, giving it that classic sourdough-like aroma you get from slowly made sparkling. Although it has complexity with age, it has loads of vibrancy & freshness with delicate aromatics. Part of the magic in the slow process, is the fine bubble it produces, along with a great balance between natural acidity and a creamy palate. The dry, savoury edge also makes it a standout for food pairing.

 

Along with Gabe’s handiwork, a lot of the credit goes to the fruit we grow, which we leave unpressed in the winery, to bypass added harshness from the grape skin/seeds, making it easier to pick up on the delicate flavours the variety is known for.

 

Defiantly one for the bucket list.

 

SINGLE VINEYARD. 11.4% Alc. Best served after gently rolling to release the lees.
