Prosecco | Pale Fox Single Estate
As you know, prosecco is a sparkling wine that is produced in an area spanning nine provinces across the Veneto and Fruili Venezia Giulia regions. Typically, the drink is made from Glera grapes, as our Pale Fox is. Pale Fox has clean, delicate flavours of apple and peach with a crisp minerality at the end.
Champagne | Oenothèque Brut Champagne 1996, Dom Pérignon
Arguably the most prevalent type of sparkling wine, a wine can only be considered actual Champagne if it comes from the specific Champagne region of France. Dom Pérignon is always a vintage wine and can only be produced from the grapes of a single year. The Oenothèque is actually aged on cork rather than in crown sealed bottles, and has the perfect balance between fruity and acidity. Blending Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the wine is dense and full-bodied on the palate.
Cava | Cava Celler Batlle 2010, Gramona
Cava is a sparkling wine that originated from a region of Spain called Catalonia. It is produced in the traditional method and is primarily made from the Spanish grape, Macabeo. The Celler Battle also contrains the Xarel-lo grape and has notes of brioche and almond.
Crémant | Crémant de Loire Brut 2016, Château de Mauny
Crémant is a group of sparkling wines made with the same traditional technique as Champagne, but from outside the Champagne region. There are 9 of these regions scattered throughout France and Luxemborg. This wine itself is pale yellow with golden hints, it combines freshness with flavours of grapefruit and subtle notes of honey.
Sekt | Brut Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Oliver Zeter
Sekt is the German word for 'sparkling wine' and describes wines produced in Germany and Austria using the charmat (or tank) method. From the master of Pfalz grown Sauvignon Blanc, this wine has persistent bubbles and leads with aromas of gooseberries and passionfruit.
Franciacorta | Franciacorta Satèn 2015, Bellavista
Franciacorta is the Italian cousin of Prosecco. However, its second fermentation occurs in the bottle and it emanates from the region of Lombardy. Part of the Terra Moretti group, the Franciacorta Satèn focuses solely on Chardonnay to produce a harmony between ripe touches and fresh sensations.
