Turn Over a New Leaf
When I last left you, last year, I was talking bubbles for the New Year and told you if it’s the only time of year you pop a cork on sparkling wine make it count.
But it’s time for a New Year’s resolution and here’s one you’ll definitely want to make and keep: drink more bubbles. Don’t make New Year’s Eve the only time you enjoy the fizz. There’s so many affordable bottle out there that you can enjoy these tongue tickling wines at least once a month.
Cono Sur Rosé, Chile ($13.90)
Proving that bubbly doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and that pink sparkling can be affordable: a real pleasure of flavour with raspberry coming through amongst hits of citrus.
Segura Viudas, Spain ($14.25)
New look label is also sporting an even better flavour profile with nice seemingly smoky-apple and pear notes all mixed in with citrus pith and some great jump-on-your-palate acidity; perfect on its own or with a meal.
Bottega Vino dei Poeti Prosecco ($13.95)
Prosecco is popular because it is priced for every day and has an element of sweetness that makes it pleasant to have by the bucket-load, it’s still dry but all that fruit and flavour just makes it appear sweet.
