Kylie Minogue, Prosecco, Prosecco, Veneto, Italy, 2020
(at Montferrier-sur-Lez, France, 30 Apr 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2022
The team has had lots of fun with the bottle design: clear glass moulded with fish-scale-like hearts to provide an arresting, faceted look. The pink colour is aptly pale and pretty, though I struggled to find the promised ‘strawberries, raspberries and blossom’ on the nose. There is, though, a general sense of lift and fruited poise: classic Prosecco allure. It’s lively, fresh and a little fruitier on the palate, with sustained and vivid acidity which mingles with the wine’s sweetness (Extra Dry, remember, is sweeter than Brut) to sherbetty effect ... maybe even strawberry sherbet? A popular, full-on, high-fun style of pink Prosecco.
