(2019) All sourced from organic or biodynamic farms, a deep pink colour, more light red. Pressed into 500 litre barrels. Interesting meaty perfume, small dry red berries. There is some sweetness on the palate, and a bite of cherry and some wild garrigue notes, finishing with dry acids slicing through the cherry and pretty fruit. A blend of 72% Syrah and 28% Cinsaut in this vintage.
(2018) All of Bellenda's Proseccos are made with low, or no sulphur, and this Brut example has only 7g/l of residual sugar. It's a finely chiselled, precise style, cool and tempered, subtle biscuit and almond to white fruits, a soft cushion of mousse and a long finish, very nice acidity balancing more of that touch of biscuit richness.
