Mario Marson and his wife Helen began cultivating vines in Heathcote back in 2000. His experience with wine began as a child when his father would make small batches of wine from vines planted in their backyard. The heritage goes back further, with his grandfather being a winemaker from Italy. Keen to continue the line, Mario planted then-unknown varietals such as Sangiovese and Nebbiolo in the Cambrian soils of Heathcote.
Unlike those of Italy, this Prosecco is made in the traditional method. This gives lovely pastry notes and adds layers of complexity the palate. Adding Pinot Bianco to the blend adds extra weight and depth of flavour. Ripe pear, green apple and hints of citrus and floral characters are evident on the nose. Lemon flavours marry with hints of nuts, giving a rich mouthfeel. The finish is persistent with salinity and hints of bitterness.
Pair with antipasti such as prosciutto. The wine will also go well with fried fish or light and spicy dishes.
