10% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier.
The fine bubbles form a large string against a golden background. A fruity nose and delicious, persistent barley sugar and brioche flavours. A very lively wine.
Named after the legendary violin, this lives up to the billing for sheer craftsmanship and quality. A 45/40/15 blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, it’s a string symphony with lots of glorious aldehydic sherry notes prized in vintage Champagne.
Lots of fresh citrus and berry fruit with green apple, giving way to complex aged notes of almond, walnut and fino sherry.
Hearty, mouth-filling and toasty, with a pure and focused palate, fine bead and a mouth-watering saline tang. Outstanding and obviously premium Champagne, beautifully presented.
Aroma: Lime, Manuka honey, tropical fruits, nutmeg and wafts of cinnamon. A hint of smoke lends a clue this is Sauvignon Blanc.
Palate: A sweet dessert style, the palate is decadent and sweet without cloying heaviness. Hard to resist.
Colour: Pale straw yellow
Olfactory sensations: Fresh, aromatic, harmonious
Serving temperature: 6-8 °C
Food matches: Excellent as an aperitif, this wine can accompany a whole meal when the menu consists of delicate dishes, right through to dessert
The stylish packaging of the Bella Modella wines is a butterfly inspired homage to all that is beautifully formed in nature or the man-made world.
The Bella Modella Prosecco comes from the low-yielding hillside vineyards of the Prosecco DOC in northeast Italy. It is a Brut style made from the Glera grape, and goes through a longer secondary fermentation of three months.
This is a crisp, refreshing style with substance and balance.
