2020 Bodega Vistalba Progenie III Vino Espumante

Mendoza, Argentina

A well balanced Argentinian sparkling with great acidity and lovely creaminess.




About This Wine

Equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot, this sparkling out of Mendoza is made via the charmat (Prosecco) method.

Finely beaded, with a nice persistent mousse, this wine is all about white florals, sweet fruit of the tropics, and a touch of brioche autolysis.

Well balanced, with great natural acidity, and a creamy mouthfeel. This is a great value bottle of bubbles from an exciting South American producer.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews


"The NV Progenie III is half Chardonnay and half Pinot Noir from the Uco Valley and spent three months on the lees. Pale pink in hue. The nose offers strawberry yogurt and hints of herbs, while in the mouth the bubbles are fine given the brief period spent aging. The voluminous palate delivers a mild freshness. The flavors return toward the end along with a little tartaric acidity." Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous)

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
