Pizzini 2012 Brachetto
The second of my 2012s & a wine that I keep coming back to. You will too! I keep smiling at the fact that whenever it is poured, the men around the table always come back for seconds when I know that they would not do the same for other Aussie sparkling – no matter how fine!
The Brachetto grape is rather unique to find in Australia – the Pizzini family call it the red version of the muscat grape. The 2012 has plenty of Turkish delight, strawberry & floral musk to offer. It is sweet & well balanced with refreshing acid on the palate where it sits lightly & lasts longingly.
A wine with a low enough alcohol that you do not have to stop at one. Enjoy alone, try it with chilli lime prawn canapés or a luxurious trio of traditional Turkish delight, petite white chocolate blueberry cheesecake topped with Persian floss. You choose!
