Here’s a challenge. The next time someone offers you a glass of Prosecco, try turning your nose up at it. You’ll find an absurd amount of resistance in your neck muscles and the words “yes please!” tumbling out of your mouth before you can stop them. This one is the perfect aperitif, a simple semi-sparkling bottle of freshly cut apple and pear flavours with a gentle fizz. It is closed with a normal cork, not a champagne cork, so don’t forget your corkscrew when you go on your picnic . Drink now.
Amid the Prosecco smile-inducing ocean of frizzante and spumante being churned out to meet the fizz-drinking public’s insatiable demand, Proseccos of distinction are not easy to come by. How does a producer distinguish himself from the crowd? Well, going organic certainly helps, but what separates La Jara from the other Proseccos out there is that fruit quality is absolutely paramount. Cited by Matthew Jukes as his favourite producer in the region, La Jara shows a pride in its product that is becoming all too rare in Prosecco.
FROM THE PRESS
“This is my favourite Prosecco and it's organically grown. The bubbles are not too aggressive and the fruit notes are tender, sensual and immensely classy. It's a far cry from supermarket dross. this is a sensational sparkler.”Matthew Jukes
