Fizz from Astoria
Many of you will know of Astoria, one of the Veneto's premium Prosecco producers, but few people know that they also produce a small range of excellent Sparkling wines that are not entitled to be called Prosecco. The quality is of their same high standard as is the presentation.We've left one bottle of Prosecco in there for you all the same.
ASTORIA CUVEE HONOR - VENEZIA D.O.C. EXTRA DRY
Astoria Cuvee Honor -Venezia D.O.C.is a fairly new release from this top sparkling wine producer. The vineyards for the grapes for this wine are grown close to the River Piave between the provinces of Treviso and Venice. It is a blend of Glera (Prosecco), Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. The pearl is very fine and continuous, the aromas are elegant and packed with fruit as is the palate where notes of pear dominate. This wine was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the company.
ASTORIA CUVEE HONOR ROSE - VENEZIA D.O.C. EXTRA DRY
This stunning rose sparkling wine was created for the 30th anniversary of Astoria, one of the foremost Prosecco producers of the Veneto. It's made from Raboso and Pinot Noir grapes that are grown close to the River Piave on the border of the Treviso and Venice provinces. It's a wine of great elegance with superb red fruit flavours and everything is so perfectly balanced it's a joy to drink. Enjoy it simply by itself or with food, especially fish and poultry dishes.
ASTORIA GALIE PROSECCO DI TREVISO EXTRA DRY
Astoria Galie Prosecco di Treviso Extra Dry is delightfully aromatic, with fine floral notes in the bouquet. The clean crisp palate has just a faint hint of richness - the classification is Extra Dry, just a touch riper than Brut - that helps carry the refined fruit flavours and the delicious mouth-watering finish.
