One of New Zealand’s most established sparkling wine brands, Bernadino is styled on the traditional spumante from Italy. It delivers excellent value for the price point. Light gold in colour, Bernardino shows lively Muscat and dried fruit characters with a hint of spice. The fresh Muscat fruit flavours enliven the palate with a bright bubbly finish. Excellent accompaniment to lightly flavoured seafood or chicken dishes.
2009 was a warm year leading to a wine of great power but with subtlety. The 2009 la collina continues in the style of previous la collina vintages, showing the vineyard expression combined with
the vintage definition. We believe this wine will cellar well for at least 10 years.
