Austins & Co Six Foot Six Prosecco 2014

This is an interesting Prosecco from Austin & Co in the King Valley in Victoria.  I've written a bit about prosecco recently, it being the name of a grape variety in Australia and a region in north eastern Italy which has created some confusion.  You can read about that here.  This is of course an Australian version of prosecco.  What surprised me however was that this is bottled in a regular 750ml bottle under screw cap.  It had rather expected I was opening a prosecco in table wine format - an interesting thought of itself - rather than a sparkling wine!  But sparkling it is.  Clearly, the pressure of the wine is able to be withstood by this seal.

As mentioned, I quite liked what's inside the bottle.  The wine has lemon and floral aromatics.  Dry with a creamy mousse and medium length, this prosecco presents as a balanced and pleasant sparkling wine.
