Jacob’s Creek Prosecco Spritz

Price : $13

VALUE FOR MONEY?

May 27, 2019

Prosecco Spritz seems to be a booming product category at the moment. Brown Brothers has one, so does Chandon and Yellowglen and I’ve previously reviewed Santaro’s version. Today I’m looking at Jacob’s Creek Prosecco Spritz.

I’m not totally clear on the winemaking process with these but the idea seems to be to make Prosecco then somehow add some botanical and fruit flavours. The idea is to create something similar to a Spritz Cocktail – ie semi sweet with a mildly bitter blood orange edge.

It’s a summery drink, really, so this is an odd time of year to be reviewing it but I had some in front of me recently so wrote a tasting note. Personally, I’ve found all of these “Spritz” wines, if we can call them wines, to be great. They are easy to drink and low alcohol, which means you can enjoy more without entering hangover territory.

The Review: Jacob’s Creek Prosecco Spritz

There’s a fruity, sweet nose with a dominant bitter orange note. It’s pleasant and well balanced on the palate. There’s a slight bitterness on the finish that wouldn’t normally be a positive in a wine but works in a cocktail-style drinks. There’s a light fizz to it of course too. It’s a very easy thing to drink and pretty hard to dislike. Decent value too.
