Aromatics of fennel, apple blossom and pear. The palate is all about freshness, as the wine is full of crunchy and refreshing fresh fruit; a touch of nuttiness on the finish maintains the Italian feel to the wine. Savour with the flavours of the Mediteranian – pan seared scallops, grilled octopus or fish.

Dal Zotto is regarded as one of the stand-out wineries in the King Valley region, and the importance of family is at its heart. The business is now lead by the second generation of Dal Zotto’s – Michael and Christian. But it was patriarch Otto Dal Zotto with his wife Elena that inspired the vision of the business.
The Dal Zotto’s approach combines the best of traditional Italian methods alongside modern, ‘new-world’ winemaking techniques. With the expansion of the winery in 1994 came the opportunity for Otto to introduce Italian varietals into the vineyard. These include barbera, sangiovese, pinot grigio, arneis. Most importantly came the planting of prosecco. A varietal and wine style that is the foundation of Otto’s Italian hometown. It is now the signature wine of the Dal Zotto range. While Prosecco is at the heart of the winery, it is wines like the Dal Zotto Pinot Grigio which are making their mark.
