There’s nothing better than a glass (or two) of some delectable bubbles, especially during the sunnier climes and so, here’s a selection Prosecco, Champagne, and sparkling wines to try this summer. Pair with your favorite light dishes from salads to fresh fish.
Highgrove Organic Prosecco
If it’s fit enough for HRH, it must be a good tipple. The gently sparkling Italian wine has been created exclusively for Highgrove using hand-picked Glera grapes from Rivarotta di Pasiano, Veneto where organic viticulture has been mastered by their producer, La Fornase. It features flavors of white peaches and pears.
Fleurs De Prairie Sparkling Rosé at Aldi
Hailing from France, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this dry rosé wine. It has a moreish creamy palate with strawberry notes, making it ideal for warmer climes. If you get your hands on their pink Prosecco, be sure to buy in bulk (it’s a popular wine and like gold dust!) Pair with your favorite cheese board.
Prosecco by Marks & Spencer
This is a very lively, crisp Italian sparkling wine with citrus notes of lemon, along with pear and apple flavors complete with a dry, refreshing finish. This premium example of Prosecco was made by Loris Bonotto at his family estate. Serve chilled as the perfect aperitif to mark the day. This Prosecco goes well with light canapés, delicate white fish dishes, and summer salads.
Nyetimber Classic Cuvee NV
This is Nyetimber’s original and best-selling answer to Champagne. Expect a gorgeous pale gold color and fine bubbles with complex aromas thanks to its development – more than three years on lees in their cellar. Notes of honey, almond, pastry, and baked apple flavors come through and make for an elegant drink.
Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs
Pour this 2010 Blanc de Blancs, sit back, and enjoy in the sun. It has classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus combined with buttered toast. There is a finesse and a richness to the wine which is courtesy of their slightly late harvest.
