PERFECTO PROSECCO

Crisp, refreshing and so delicious!

The perfect refreshment for drinks and nibbles or as an aperitivo before dinner. Stunning wine at a fabulous price of just $19.99!

Legendary All Black Captain and the man behind the iconic number 14 jersey Sir John Kirwan, has had a long love affair with Italy - the region of Treviso in particular, where he played Rugby, met his wife and married into an Italian Family. He would tell you this is where his education began, where he learnt about the really important things in life - food, wine and family!

Armed with all these wonderful new experiences he wanted all his fellow kiwis to have access to the important things too, so he and daughter Francesca have set up JK.14 Wines. They import a small, quality focussed range working with family owned brands within the Veneto region - many of whom have become life long friends of the Kirwans, all with wonderful stories just like this delicious Prosecco...

Legend has it that each morning, a wine vendor would set up his cart at the foot of the famous bell tower in St Mark’s square. Through the day, as the sun beat its way across the piazza cobblestones, he would move to stay in the bell tower’s shadow – ombra, in Italian – making sure his wine kept cool and fresh.

To this day, ask any Venetian tavern-keeper for “two shadows” – “Dame do ombre!” – and he’ll know exactly what you mean...two small chalice-glasses of fine Prosecco. You’ll never ask for just one ombra, because it is always to be shared with a friend.

This wine - Ombra De Vin Prosecco Brut DOC Treviso is a beautiful example with fresh apple and white blossom on the nose. It's all lemon meringue pie on the palate though, with zesty citrus flavours and a fantastic creamy, frothy finish. Crisp, fresh and dry with an almost decadent mouthfeel.

This is the perfect refreshment to serve at any summer entertaining opportunity. Whether its just afternoon drinks in the courtyard, over a long family lunch, or as an aperitif before your main dinner course.

Make sure you're serving this delightful Ombra De Vin Prosecco. Order a case and do it like they would in Italy, and invite the whole family!

Description

This Prosecco from John Kirwan is stunning value. Ombra means shadow in Italian and the story goes that if you ask any venetian tavern-keeper for “dame do ombre” (“two shadows”), they will know exactly what you mean; two small chalice-glasses of fine prosecco. You’ll never ask for just one ombra, because it is always to be shared with a friend. A fresh and dry Prosecco from the Treviso province, a welcome addition to the Jk.14 range that will impress.

Smells

Tropical pineapple and fresh apples with fine white floral aromas.

Tastes

A beautifully creamy mouthfeel, it is filled with ripe citrus, lemon meringue pie flavours and support but gentle, succulent acidity. Crisp, fresh, dry and delicious Prosecco.
