£13.0075cl

£11.05/75cl 

 

Lightly sparkling and relatively light in alcohol  - with fresh, ripe strawberry and cherry fruit. Not too sweet and not too dry - the sweetness of the ripe red berry fruit is perfectly balanced by a refreshing, clean acidity.

ITALY

 

Romandiola Pignoletto Frizzante 2017, Italy, 11.5% 

 

£10.50/75cl

£8.93/75cl 

 

 

Off-dry (but slightly drier than the average Prosecco), the nose is fruity and gently perfumed with citrus blossom and delicate peach aromas.  The palate shows simple citrus and green apple fruit with a refreshing acidity.

 

Le Dolci Colline Prosecco Spumante Brut NV, 11.5% [Vegan]

 

£10.75/75cl

£9.14/75cl 

                                                                                                                      

Deliciously fizzy and refreshing with lifted aromas of citrus and green apple. The palate is delicately fruity with a crisp, clean finish.

 

Wild Thing Prosecco Frizzante 2017, 11% [Organic & Vegan]

 

£12.25/75cl

£10.41/75cl 

                                                                                                                   

This easy drinking, organic Prosecco has delicate notes of pear and spring flowers with a touch of white peach fruit.  Being Frizzante (instead of Spumante), the bubbles are softer but still bring lift and freshness.  

Plus, for every bottle sold, a donation is made to the Born Free Foundation to fund conservation and animal projects around the world.  (It also has a handy 'flip top' lid that can be re-sealed for convenience - if required!)

Described poetically by the winemaker as having 'notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine ... complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.  The fruit is majestic, ripe, fleshy and profound.  The wine's power is remarkably restrained.  The various sensations - silky, salty, sappy and briny - converge and persist.'
