Top Three Celebratory Sparkling Wines


Top Three Celebratory Sparkling Wines

If you are looking to bring in the New Year with some seriously good celebratory sparklers, look no further…

Gimenez Riili, Brut Nature

Freshly launched, this sparkler is an ideal party wine: fresh, fruity, light and easy to drink – you’ll be having a very merry party in no time! A half and half mix of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir you’ll find tropical fruits and floral notes with a light bubble making it a perfect party pourer.

Bressia Royale

A handsome bubbly made by the traditional champagne method, this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Tupungato has the freshness of tropical and citrus fruits with the comforting aromas of coconut and toasted brioche. A serious bubbly for the more sophisticated dinner party.

Cruzat Cuvee Reserve Rose Extra Brut

Made by the king of sparkling wine in Argentina, Pedro Rosell, this mainly Pinot Noir based blush is a beautiful salmon pink and has a rich structure after spending two years on the lees. Red fruits, tasted bread and elegant bubbles – gorgeous and oh so terribly pretty!
