The iconic Peach Bellini originated in Venice, Italy, in the 1930’s or 40’s where peaches were a favoured summer fruit. The blush hue of this delicious pink mocktail led to its title - it was named after 15th Century Renaissance artist, Giovanni Bellini, who used soft pink colours in several of his paintings. A fan favourite, the mocktail pairs pureed peach mix with Noughty’s brut sparkling Chardonnay, a highly acclaimed non-alcoholic replica of French Champagne. The crisp, dry finish of the sparkling wine balances out the sweetness of the peach puree. Simple and elegant, it delivers a taste of summer. For the best experience, garnish with slices of peach on a skewer and a plump sprig of mint.
