Nick and Trudy Stacy are the vignerons behind Clandestine, and while they’re based in Western Australia, they source fruit from quality South Australian and Victorian vineyards. Here the Glera for the Prosecco is infused with Barbera skins. Fermented to 8.0g/L RS for a hint of sweetness.
Clandestine Vineyards, Prosecco Rosé, King Valley, 2022
Very pale dusky peach hue. Lots of fine fast beading. Pink apple, summer berries, chalk dust, musk, fairy floss, pink grapefruit and clean A4 paper. Bright and fresh, plenty of crisp pink apple slices with expected racy acidity. Nothing complex, but the addition of the Barbera skins brings enough interest.
Rating: 17.25/20 (89/100)
