A luscious candy hued wine, unlike any other, by virtue of a unique c├ępage Tempranillo and Sangiovese. La Zona may be pink but she's no frivolous lightweight. Grapes are all picked by hand off fully mature vines, fifteen years of age, grown to labour intensive trellising at an altitude of 260 metres. The juicy strawberryness of Tempranillo and savoury cherry charm of Sangiovese, make a comely coloured wine with captivating ripe fruit flavours and exciting berry perfumes, bring La Zona along for a soiree with good friends and a feast of tantalizing nibbles.
The beautifully undulating Pizzini property lies at the heart of the agriculturally rich and diverse King Valley. The site was transitioned from tobacco farming to viticulture in the late 1970s and has since become synonymous with the highest quality wines. Rosato wines are made from red grapes with a minimal controlled contact on skins. Traditionally, old world winemakers would wake at dawn to begin picking fruit, by noon, the grapes had been crushed and juices treated to maceration on skins. The red hued batches would be drained after twelve hours of exposure, right around midnight, thus Rosato came to be referred to as vino della notte, the wine of the night. Alcohol 11.9%
TASTING NOTES
Vibrant cherry lipstick. Bouquet is lively, lifted berry fruit and jam with hints of rose petal, violet and confectionary. A palate of bright berry fruit, lingering cranberry and strawberry characters, a full flavoured pink wine offering a powerful mid palate with crisp acidity and a persistent finish. Enjoy whilst young and chilled alongside duck salad or garlic prawns.

More About Chrismont Winery
Chrismont's location at the base of the Victorian Alps is undoubtedly the most defining feature of the King Valley
Chrismont Wines incorporates the winery and cellar door operations, in addition to the estate vineyards, owned by Arnie & Jo Pizzini. The beautiful, undulating property in the heart of the agriculturally rich and diverse King Valley initially was dedicated to tobacco production in the 1960s. Chrismont founder Arnie Pizzini, along with his father Arnold, transitioned the property focus to wine grape production in the late seventies. Over the twenty years since then, the King Valley and Chrismont vineyards have become synonymous with the production of high quality wine grapes for red, white, and sparkling wine. Chrismont»
