Otto and Elena Dal Zotto established Dal Zotto Estate in North East Victoria’s King Valley in 1987. Back then it was a small vineyard planted to chardonnay, merlot and cabernet sauvignon producing a few tonnes of grapes. These days the family vineyard holdings run close to 200 acres, there is a full winery on site, not to mention the cellar door, Trattoria, kitchen gardens, sweeping lawns running down to the King River and a bocce pitch where regular conquests take place, always with glass in hand. Otto and Elena's sons Michael & Christian now own Dal Zotto and have continued to be inspired by and add to the Dal Zotto vision.
Pale straw, yet youthful for an aged style of Prosecco, hinting at the serious nature of the style; the bouquet delves into a touch of toasty complexity, underpinned by ample levels of pear, and struck quartz mineral complexity; the palate reveals the complete story, with generous mouth filling bubbles on entry, zesty citrus fruit on the mid palate, and inviting blanched almonds on the dry and chalky finish; beautifully constructed and a fitting tribute to Otto’s heritage
