Astoria Cuvee Honor - Venezia D.O.C. Extra Dry

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.
Grape Variety: Glera, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc
Bottle Size: 75cl
Closure: Natural cork
Style: Top class sparkling wine!
Drink With: Everyone you know
This is the thinking man's Prosecco. With the basis being the Glera (Prosecco) grape it shares many characteristics with Prosecco but the Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco give the wine added complexity. It's fresh and just off-dry so it makes a wonderful aperitif but try it with fish dishes and all sorts of starters, you'll love it.
Why we like this wine
We love quality Prosecco and so does most of the UK wine drinkers. But this has an added dimension. It's very easy drinking with very refined fruit flavours. It makes the palate come alive before a meal and certainly gets the appetite going. You could almost be in Venice!
- A first class aperitif
- More complex than Prosecco
- Just the right level of sweetness to suit most palates
- Stylish presentation
