De Bortoli, a great Australian wine family, purchased the historic Rutherglen Estates in 2018. Experience pays dividends here, injecting a touch of light-footed, European savoury fun to the traditional Australian sparkling red speciality. Most producers err with this style, too much tannin and sweetness, which can be fatiguing. This channels touches of Lambrusco's fun. Lovely to drink with good salami or gutsier dishes like lasagna or shepherds pie.
