Zonin Prosecco NV

I've purchased this Prosecco before - a very cost effective input into a home made Aperol Spritz - so I was quite happy to receive a bottle for review.

It's a Woolworths exclusive (the Pinnacle Liquor reference a dead giveaway) so you'll only find it in the likes of BWS. At $11 it's not the most complex of its style, but is a great afternoon refresher, a gateway to the evening, or - as I've indicated - perfect for an Aperol Spritz.

Opens with pear drop aromatics, citrus and a little almond grove. It's a fresh little Prosecco made from the Glera grape in Italy's North East.

In the mouth: full, moussey, the congregation of bubbles joining en masse to provide a substantive experience. There's more pear and citrus present here and the finish, whilst dry, carries a little fruit sweetness for refreshment. An effective summer cleanser. 87
