#winewednesday - primo secco


It's that time of the week.  The mid-week hump.  And to help you get over that I'm reviewing a great bubbly today & it's an absolute bargain.  Primo Estate's Primo Secco.


I have to admit I first came to know Primo Estate's wine via their olive oil.  I'd had some at a friends house and they casually mentioned they make wine too, and had a delightful cellar door I could visit next time I was in McLaren Vale.  

Anyway to the wine.  This bubbly is made in the style of a prosecco.  It's fresh, fruity, light and refreshing.  Thankfully for me it's drier than many prosecco's (I like wines on the drier side).  When you first pop the cork and pour a glass you'll get lovely fruity notes and a hint of citrus.  (I swore I  smelled a hint of apricot the first time.... but maybe I was dreaming).   It was great to drink as is, but I also enjoyed drinking a bottle the other day after adding some added rasberries to the glass first.  The only negative about this wine is it's way too easy to go through an entire bottle.  Pro-tip.... don't every buy just one!  Get a case.   The great thing about a case is it won't set you back much either.  I was surprised (happily so) to find that this wine goes for just $20 a bottle.  Bargain!    I shipped a case home in November and we've only got one bottle left in the fridge... possibly none by the time you read this :-)


I think this is my flavour of summer for 2013 :-)

Cheers!
