Jacob’s Creek introduces Prosecco Spritz in Australia

July 26: Catching up with the current global trending popularity of Spritz, an aperitif cocktail made from Campari Aperol and Prosecco, Pernod Ricard has recently introduced ready to drink with ice Jacobs Creek Prosecco Spritz in Australia, making it an excellent refreshing wine cocktail for summer, that might find a ready market in India where the sparkling wine segment is taking off fast, writes Subhash Arora who hopes the low-alcohol product will be available here soon

Click For Large ViewIn response to the current trend of increasing number of consumers enjoying Prosecco, spritz and aperitif drinks throughout the year, Jacob’s Creek Prosecco Spritz has been introduced as a sparkling wine with flavours of blood oranges, sweet citrus and botanicals such as cinchona and liquorish root extract. It’s ready to serve over a few ice-cubes.

Jacobs Creek Prosecco Spritz is the Australian answer to the increasingly popular Aperol Spritz, an Italian aperitivo made by Campari (Aperol is imported in India by Aspri Spirits and Wines) and is quite popular in Italy and several other countries including India; perhaps more so among women. It's a fragrant and slightly bitter blend of Aperol and Prosecco, topped with a dash of club soda.

Jacob’s Creek sparkling winemaker Trina Smith says: “Our winemakers spent a lot of time perfecting the right mix of ingredients to best balance our Prosecco and zesty sweet blood oranges. All of our Prosecco (grape) is grown and sourced Australia. Jacob’s Creek Prosecco Spritz is an example of our love and passion for sparkling winemaking, combined with a progressive spirit to create something new and exciting for consumers.”

Prosecco has a registered GI (Geographic Indication) and may be produced only from Glera grapes in specified region of North-eastern Italy. However, Australia won a law suit in 2013 and can legally call the wine made from prosecco grapes as a Prosecco under its own wine appellation laws.  For details please visit delWine

Available in the standard 750 mL bottle with cork closure, it has alcohol content of only 8.5%., making it a potentially favourite drink with those who like to have lower alcohol or have to drive after a couple of drinks. It would make a good welcome drink in hotels and restaurants, and at banquets and parties if and when introduced in India at prices similar to the still wine or even slightly higher priced. It retails for around A$16 (US$12) in Australia.

​However, according to our sources, the Indian arm of Pernod Ricard has no plans to import Prosecco Spritz for the moment.​

Prosecco Spritz would also be an exclusive choice for Vinotallers (a term coined by delWine for those who drink only wine as an alcohol and no beer or liquor-there is an increasing number of this population worldwide).
