Kylie Minogue Prosecco Rosé

Celebrities have been getting into the wine game for years, and with the creation of Prosecco Rosé and popularity of Prosecco in general, we were curious to see who would make it their pet project (not every celeb has the time to dig in deep). When international pop queen Kylie Minogue threw her hat into the ring and made a Prosecco Rosé, we knew we had to try it. Now we just can’t get it out of our heads, her rosé is all we think about… and it’s all she thinks about too.

Tasting Notes: Prosecco Rosé is made from Pinot Noir in addition to Glera, the traditional grape used for Prosecco. Kylie Minogue Prosecco Rosé sports Prosecco’s crisp palate, bursts with fresh strawberry, raspberry and floral notes, then finishes with a clean citrus touch. The heart-embossed bottle makes it a charming addition to your table too!

Enjoy With: Vegan cuisine (it’s vegan friendly), summer salads, charcuterie, fruit like melon wrapped in prosciutto, seafood dishes, lightly sauced white meats or baked brie with berries.  It’s also wonderful on the brunch table!

Style: A light, refreshing, fruity Sparkling Rosé wine.

Terroir/Region: The grapes for this wine were grown in the heart of Veneto, Italy on the rolling hills of Gambellara. The region’s limestone soils give the wine an added complexity, and the cool nights and warm days allow the grapes to slowly build expressive fruit flavours while maintaining the acidity essential to making sparkling wines.

Producer: Kylie worked on the blend with the Zonin family, a winemaking family in their 7th generation who hold 4000 hectares (nearly 10,000 football fields) of estate vineyards and deep knowledge of Prosecco production. The collaboration produced a Prosecco Rosé worthy of the wine/pop fame of its makers.
