"Prosecco of the Year" - Matthew Jukes, Weekend Mail
The classic Venetian aperitif which will make your patio feel like the Piazza San Marco
A dry semi-sparkling Italian rosé that will turn that frown upside down
It has a super mouth-filling mousse – although I'd describe it more as a foam than a mousse.
The ancestral 'Col fondo' method does cost more to produce, as you'd expect, but at this price, I would back-up the truck.
WARNING - open with great care. Safety first, safety second! Please open with a tea towel secured over the crown cap.....good things come to those who wait!
Great value 'grower champagne'
'I should probably call this a pet-NOT, it has a slight PFFT on opening, but after that it is best treated as a highly aromatic, slightly cloudy, pétillant, orange / rosé wine. That trace of CO2 is vital though, as the wine was made without any sulphur dioxide additions whatsoever it’s the carbon dioxide that is protecting it.' - Winemaker, Tim Wildman MW
Everyone in the Swig office loves this! Rhubarb and custard tangy sweets with hints of melon and peach and a tart apple palate. Yum!
Glorious Petillant Naturel from our favourite people in the Adelaide Hills!
This is so good. Made with techniques normally reserved for much more expensive Champagnes, and very rarely, it's a Blanc de Noirs made from only the black grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier that is matured in oak barrels and then blended with the reserve wines. Whenever we serve this to friends they cannot believe how delicious Champagne can be.
Made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
From a perfect site for sparkling wines in the South Downs, protected by Ditchling Beacon directly to the South, the vineyard gets lots of warmth for ripening, and a good flow of air keeping the rot and frost away. In short, this could emerge in time as one of the very best sites in the South Downs for sparkling wine. Plus it's made by one of the Masters of English sparkling wine, Dermot Sugrue.
An utterly glorious Cava from a long-established, traditional family producer.
Softly stewed apples mingle with preserved lemon, almond nuttiness and a fresh loaf of sourdough.
‘Great discovery…exquisite…warm brioche…lovely richness’
"A sip is a proper sliver of luxury" - Victoria Moore (The Telegraph)
Utterly gorgeous. The texture of fruit is amazing for a sparkling wine - be it top white burgundy or luxury Champagne. The fruit flavour is so ripe and delicious. It is absolutely top tier fizz.
Quite possibly the best English sparkling ever made.
We would happily drink this instead of any rose Champagne you placed in front of us, including Krug (but possibly excluding Dom Perignon Rose 1982). Divine. Wiston is the most exquisitely beautiful soft fine sparkling Rose.
Exquisitely beautiful Grand Cru Champagne made from 100% Chardonnay from Mesnil sur Oger and Oger. The fruit is taken only from the 'heart of the cuvee', that's to say the most luxurious part of the fruit that comes from the pressing. The luxury Champagne is aged in wooden barrels. It is absolutely amazing with a lovely texture. It's excellent with sushi as an aperitif and served with a fish course.
A hugely exciting Champagne discovery. "As soon as I had finished my sample, I went on-line and bought some of this amazing value in Champagne, in part just to re-taste and make sure it was really this good." - David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate, 94 points
95 points, 5 Stars ***** - Decanter's only 'Outstanding Champagne' in January issue 2014. OUTSTANDING “Deutz (2006) heads the pack for its gentle, fresh, aromatic character.”
"A very fine elegant expression of 2006… The balance of ripeness and sustaining acidity is spot-on.” - Michael Edwards
