Eddie McDougall Prosecco NV
Aromas of white flowers, pears and white peaches. A very approachable and gentle expression on the palate. Wonderfully refreshing with balanced flavours of pure orchard fruits and a mineral undertone. Pair with cured meats or smoked salmon.

Produced from vines planted in Australia's high country this wine is produced with every intention of rivalling those of its Italian origin. Made under the classic Charmat method this expression of Prosecco carries a soft mousse that is incredibly expansive of flavours and softly popping.
This wine is part of the original series of Eddie’s wines which he established in 2007 with his then winemaking partner in crime, Simon Black (Montalto Vineyards, Mornington Peninsula). The focus of this range was to create a unique portfolio of wines from the growing North Eastern wine region of Victoria, Australia. With a clear vision to not make just another bloody Aussie Shiraz, Eddie set his winemaking talents to work on producing classic Italian varietals in the region. In 2011 all wines from this range were rebranded under Eddie McDougall Wines.
