So when you think Prosecco, you think sweet, sparkling, but fundamentally one dimensional. Think again. Firstly, this is a frizzante. Which means it is semi-sparkling. So very soft, gentle bubbles. Second, it's an explosion of apple, pear and fresh whipped cream flavours that keep on giving. In other words, it's absolutely delicious. Our best selling Prosecco by far!!
This non vintage release from Veuve Clicquot is recognised the world over for its distinctive yellow packaging and quality. Veuve Clicquot began in 1772 and takes its name from Madame Clicquot who was widowed and took over the reins of this Champagne house (Veuve Clicquot literally meaning Widow Clicquot in French). This particular bottling is known for its expert blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Meunier grapes. An excellent luxury aperitif !
Freixenet Prosecco is golden straw in colour with lively effervescence and fresh aromas of citrus, apple and flowers. Clean and fresh on the palate with tones of ripe lemon, green apple and grapefruit. The finish is light and fresh. Nice bottle too!
Although located around 100km west of Treviso, the romantically inspiring city of Verona is where Pasqua was founded in 1925, as well as having provided the backdrop for Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. A pale, lightly aromatic and easy-drinking sparkling wine, with a soft mousse and an off-dry feel. Gentle flavours of pear, clementine and white apple are lifted by soft acidity. Enjoy on its own at any informal celebration, or as an accompaniment to summery salads and antipasti.
91 points, “From a winery that has made Crémants since the 1840s, this is a 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay blend matured for 24 months on lees. Toasty orchard fruit aromas continue on a dry, creamy palate with fine mousse, yeasty complexity and pineapple finish.” – Decanter
Simmonet-Febvre Crémant de Bourgogne Brut NV dazzles with bright lemon zest notes, apple pie and cream, pear sorbet, yeasty bread and a Chablis-esque minerality. We hope it won’t upset a producer that has been crafting such exquisite sparkling wine for almost 200 years, but we just adore this with fish and chips!
