Two new Sparkling wines set to do the rounds this summer

The Barossa Valley’s Grant Burge has added two new Prosecco wines to its renowned premium range, just time for sparkling enthusiasts to enjoy with the warmer weather. New Grant Burge Prosecco NV and Prosecco Rosé are youthful, fresh, and contemporary wines and set to be an Australian summer favourite, for every occasion.         

Offering a lighter style, a touch of fruit, and with slightly lower alcohol (ABV 11.5 per cent), the new Prosecco NV and Prosecco Rosé offer the perfect premium drop to add some sparkle to an afternoon barbecue, share with friends at a summer soiree or gift to a prosecco-lover.  

Australian sparkling continues to dominate the local wine market, contributing to 54 per cent of total sparkling value sales[1]. Within the Australian sparkling category, the growth is largely driven by Prosecco – a popular varietal that lends itself to a broad range of both casual and celebratory drinking occasions thanks to its easy-drinking profile and aperitif style.  

Chief Winemaker Craig Stansborough says Prosecco enthusiasts and Grant Burge fans alike will notice the attention to craftsmanship in these elegantly structured and beautifully balanced wines, a hallmark of the Grant Burge brand.    

“We are thrilled to build on our existing premium sparkling wine range, introducing Prosecco NV and Prosecco Rosé. The Grant Burge winemaking team is committed to crafting contemporary wines with beautiful drinkability – on their own or with food – and our new Prosecco duo will not disappoint,” Mr Stansborough said. 

“New Prosecco NV and Prosecco Rosé are refreshing in flavour, youthful and slightly lower in alcohol than Grant Burge’s more traditional sparklings, Pinot Noir Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Chardonnay Rosé. These wines are ideal to enjoy over long lunches or to pop a bottle for summer celebrations and festive drinking occasions.”

Grant Burge Prosecco NV and Prosecco Rosé are crafted with pristine grapes sourced from cool climate regions across South-Eastern Australia, known for producing elegant and premium Prosecco with fresh and lively fruit characters.

Grant Burge Prosecco NV boasts a light straw colour and floral nose bursting with white peach and acacia honey. Notes of pistachio and stone fruit entertain the palate before experiencing a subtle finish of honeysuckle.

Grant Burge Prosecco Rosé has a pale pink complexion and offers soft red fruits with a bright minerality and slightly savoury nature. Dry in taste, with just a hint of tannin adding texture to the fresh and fruity style. 

Offering premium prosecco at an affordable price point, Grant Burge Prosecco NV and Prosecco Rosé are available now at leading liquor stores nationally with an RRP of $25.
