Join us for our Friday Evening Wine tasting featuring a Prosecco and Pinot Grigio. The balloons will be flying!
Most Prosecco wines are produced in a dry, brut style. However, due to the grapes’ fruity flavors of green apple, honeydew melon, pear, and honeysuckle, it usually seems sweeter than it is. Even though brut is the most popular sweetness level of Prosecco sold in the market today, you can find styles that are sweeter if you seek them out. Here is how Prosecco is labeled for sweetness:
Brut 0–12 g/L RS (residual sugar) – Up to a half gram of sugar per glass
Extra Dry 12–17 g/L RS – Just over a half gram of sugar per glass
Dry 17–32 g/L RS – Up to 1 gram of sugar per glass
By the way, if you haven’t had an Extra Dry Prosecco yet, this style offers a great balance between Prosecco’s fruit, tingly acidity, and subtle sweetness.
This sparkling wine is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.
Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio
Brilliant clarity and bright hues, with restrained floral aromatics of subtle pear and gentle spice. A true Pinot Grigio style.
Vinaceous knows that every great performance starts with a great cast. The 2015 Sirenya Pinot Grigio presents cool climate Adelaide Hills fruit, carefully handpicked and fermented in stainless steel to preserve its delicate aromatics of nashi pear and stone fruits. Made in true ‘grigio” style, this wine is clean, crisp and minerally across the palate finishing with pristine acidity.
