The T’Gallant story began in 1990 with the planting of Pinot Grigio vines at two vineyards on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. To our surprise, the wines made from the different vineyards showed two distinctive expressions of the same grape variety. One had a crisp Pinot Grigio style typical of northern Italy, while the other showed richer, more luscious characters typical of Pinot Gris in northern France (they are the same grape variety – Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for the French variety Pinot Gris).
This discovery inspired us to venture to Friuli in Italy and Alsace in France to learn more about the remarkable Pinot Gris grape variety and to witness its true versatility of styles.
We returned home to the Peninsula with a plan to make wines reflective of this broad spectrum, and in doing so championed the production of Pinot Gris and Grigio wines in Australia. Today T'Gallant continues to produce benchmark examples, alongside other fresh and vibrant food-friendly wines ever since.
The T’Gallant range of sparkling wines covers the spectrum from dry to sweet. Perfect as aperitifs and also fabulous with food, they are made in an approachable, fresh and vibrant style that T’Gallant is known for, with a delicate sparkling bead.
From zesty Prosecco to classic Chardonnay Pinot Noir alongside two fruity Moscatos, we have a sparkling for every occasion. Fun and frivolous on the outside, you’ll find some serious bubbles on the inside.
What’s it like
T’Gallant Prosecco is fresh and dry with aromas of citrus, apple and pear leading to a bright zesty finish. Bright and vibrant with a delicate sparkling bead, this sparkling wine makes a great aperitif or complement to antipasto, cured meats, subtle cheeses and seafood.
