King Valley Victoria
Chrismont have been growing the King Valley's finest fruit and crafting exceptional wines for over three decades. Somewhat of a specialist at the high altitude styles, Chrismont have fashioned an immensely popular sparkler with pleasingly drying palate in the delightfully food friendly, fruit forward character of Proseccos from the Friuli region of northeastern Italy.
Chrismont are well positioned with the most splendid vineyards and ideal locations on the beautiful King Valley, all of which combine for that sense of place known as terroir. With a similar climate and landscape to Piemonte and Tuscany in Italy, long summer days enable the grapes to achieve genuine flavour ripeness which gives lovely fruit richness to the wines, while cool nights allow elegant cool climate characters to emerge. La Zona are designed to drink any day, at any time, for any occasion. Crafted to the true Methode traditionelle which ensures richness of palate and fullness of texture, La Zona has been treated to a second fermentation within it's own bottle.
Pale straw coloured with green hues, a lovely bead and fine mousse. Nose of melons and citrus, green apples, almond and honey. The front palate bursts with dry, delicately flavoured bubbles. A crisp but not overly acid palate supports the bubbles through to the finish. A great aperitivo and ideal accompaniment to oysters, scallops, and crab. Drink young and fresh.
