This sparkling has been created to be enjoyed immediately. Citrus and pear flavours shine through, with a fine yet textured bubbles rounding it off.
Vintage Conditions Vineyards are selected for fruit subtlety and finesse. On the valley floor these are generally East through to South facing slopes. In the upper Yarra Valley, the aspect is not so critical.
91 Points "Another masterful wine from De Bortoli. The blending of vintages and extended time on lees all add up to a wine of complexity and true sparkling-wine style. Old oak adds a nice touch." Ray Jordan, West Australian, December 2015
Guava tropical fruit and fresh clean apple. Well balanced. Good length - the acid carries it well. An easy drinking wine. Drinks Trade, National, September 2015
“A fruit-focused sparkling of medium straw hue, lemon, red apple and pear fruit, with subtle, spicy lees complexity and creamy mouth feel, finishing with candied dosage. It's fresh and balanced.” James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2016, July 2015
"This fresh and gentle, classy drop over-delivers on quality. Add to a hamper or serve at a celebration lunch." Toni Paterson, Australian House And Garden, May 2015
"De Bortoli's Rococo Premium Cuvee is sourced from outstanding Yarra Valley fruit to create a sparkling wine with subtle biscuit-like aromas, citrus and white pear characters, and a soft creamy textured palate with length." National Liquor News, April 2015
