Rose pink. Aromatic and bright with rosewater, crushed grapes, fresh musk and lychee. The delicious, juicy sweetness of fresh berries fills the palate. Creamy texture and natural sweetness is made bright with a refreshing acidity and light spritz that lifts up the palate in a Frizzante style. Drink chilled whilst young and fresh. Hand picked, gently pressed and fermented until the right balance of fruit, acid and sugar was achieved. Bottled early to capture the clean, bright fruits.
A great style of Prosecco. It is full of lively, little bubbles and has a lovely soft lemon and pear fruit palate. Fantastically refreshing and works brilliantly as an aperitif, it's a versatile and popular choice.

It took until 2012 for the vintage to be considered Emerson worthy (and wasn’t released until 2016). Emerson is made using the traditional sparkling wine method – whole-bunch cold pressed then bottle fermented for four and half years on the lees. One word sums it up… Amazing.
Whole bunches of hand-picked fruit are gently pressed to ensure delicate flavours. After primary ferment the wine is tiraged with no malolactic fermentation and disgorged after 18 months on yeast lees to retain crisp, fresh flavours. Pinot Noir 58%, Chardonnay 41.5% and Pinot Meunier 0.5%. Sourced from our estate vineyard at Relbia in northern Tasmania. Pale straw with a lively fine bead. Crisp Granny Smith apple and citrus. A fresh, lively palate of green apple and lemon with hints of toasted biscuit. Will with further develop with bottle age to exhibit more savoury and complex characters, whilst retaining the crisp citrus driven fruit.
'The tension and focus of this cool, high site sings lemon, apple and crunchy pear fruit of good concentration and mid-palate depth, well toned by the creamy texture and almond meal complexity of three years lees age. A pale straw hue reflects its restraint, with a long finish carried by fine acidity and toasty complexity. A highlight in Eden Valley sparkling.' Tyson Stelzer's Australian Sparkling Report 2017, 92 points.
