Bottega Stardust is a product of immediate visual impact, as the green glass of the traditional bottle is entirely covered by a galaxy of crystals. The effect 'stardust' makes especially shining the moment of the aperitif and of the toast. Brilliant, with a rich, creamy and persistent foam and fine perlage. Straw yellow. Typical of Prosecco: fruity (apple, pear, peach, citrus) and floral (acacia, wisteria, lily of the valley and slight final hint of roses). Harmonious, elegant, persistent, good balance between the rich texture and pleasant mineral notes.

These are the youngest of all the Dow's wood-aged Ports, having been aged on average 3 years in oak casks. These wines are carefully made from the finest grapes in the Douro valley. During the ageing process, the wines are tasted regularly and, when they are considered to be ready, they are blended with all the care of a premium quality Port, but are bottled when ready for immediate consumption. The result is a range of Ports with the fine balance and flavour, worthy of the Dow's name.

A single vineyard wine from the Pokolbin Hills Estate vineyard. This vineyard has long been the source of top semillon for the Tyrrell's winemakers and now has its own label. After a relatively cool fermentation, the wine spent minimal time on yeast lees and was quickly bottled to maintain freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation.
The wine shows a classic semillon nose of lemons and limes, whilst on the palate it is impeccably balanced being dominated by citrusy, lime characters with great length of fruit and a soft, approachable acid structure.
