Prosecco

Our hand picked estate grown grapes have been 'whole bunch' pressed to create a delicate balance of fruit synonymous with this sparkling variety.

With yields kept intentionally low and the utmost care taken throughought the wine making process we are able to reveal the true flavour of the Prosecco grape, resulting in a limited edition boutique vintage unrivalled.

This years release is 1440 bottles reflected in the new look lable. 
A perfect compliment for any occasion.


Pinot Grigio

Exciting times at Fontanella Winery! Our 2014 Pinot Grigio is now available.

The vines, heavy with fruit were hand picked and our wine maker has 'whole bunch' pressed our grapes to produce aromas of citrus, pear and tropical fruit, good perfume and a balanced textural minerality.

Enjoy now for its freshness or cellar for up to 3 years.

 

Rosato

100% Pinot Noir sourced form a small vineyard in the Macedon Ranges. It was made using the maceration method and fermented in barrel to increase complexity and enhance the colour. Shows bright, attractive aromas of red fruit, cherry and strawberry predominant. The dry palate is quite savory with spice notes - perfect on its own or perhaps with a charcuterie plate.

 

Pinot Nero

Dark crimson in colour, complex aromas of cherry, spice, perfume and herbs aided by not only the cool, hand tended vineyard site, but also the 30% new French oak.

Good balance on the palate, which is quite rich and generous for a Macedon Pinot. The tannins are fine and firm. While drinking excellently now this wine will benefit from a further 4-6 years cellaring.
