A brace of brilliant sparklers without a single mention of the "C" word proving there's still great value and excitement to be had beyond the borders of a certain French appellation.
La Jara, Prosecco, Treviso NV
A lightly sparkling wine with delicate florals and green apple. A house staple at Quality Wines from day one.
Ca' D'Gal, Lumine, Moscato d'Asti 2018
Moscato how it should be! Delicate, floral and light. Sweet but not cloying. The ultimate Spring-time sparkler.
Antech, Cuvée Eugenie, Cremant-de Limoux NV
Cremant de Limoux, when made well, is more cerebral than many sparklings. This is great with a block of parmesan or even more substantial food.
Grape: Chardonnay, Chenin, Mauzac
Malibràn, Rosé Spumante, Veneto NV
This is one of the best proseccos we have tried. Looks and tastes like a fizz for a special occasion - fresh red berries and persistent bubbles.
Grapes: Raboso, Incrocio manzoni
Entre Vinyes, "Funàmbul" Brut, Penedes 2016
Gorgeous Cava, a mid-week bit of class, has both biscuity-ness and fresh crunch.
Grape: Xarel.lo, Macabeo and Parellada
Dominio de Tharsys, Brut Nature, Cava NV
The best value fizz we have found in years! Elegant and fresh with pretty citrus and stone fruits. One to convince cava-sceptics.
Grape: Macabeo and Parralleda
