Sparkling

Did someone say sparkle? It’s time to bring out the glitter (and sequins), grab your friends, and get ready to flaunt it with this wine that’s both elegant and bubbly — just like you!

What should I pair it with?

Perfect for all of your celebrations, you can up the glamour factor and serve this festive favourite with a tray of oysters or steaming hot bowl of mussels.

Taste: Bursting with crisp apple and citrus, lively in the mouth with tropical notes and a racy tartness that compliments the playful bubbles.
