We love a little Australian Sparkling all year round and especially during the Festive Season, so we’ve done a little tasting and found a few awesome picks that we know will go down a treat.
Yarra Social – $18.99
Yarra Social by Yarra Burn is all about celebrating the everyday. Designed for summer, it is fresh, approachable and easy drinking. With strawberry and citrus flavours, and a crisp, clean finish, it is the perfect accompaniment to sunny afternoons and sundowners with friends.
House of Arras Brut Elite – $49.99
Born of a long-held desire to craft world class sparkling wines, the House of Arras is a true expression of its origin and maker – a marriage of exceptional cold climate Tasmanian vineyards and uncompromising sparkling winemaking techniques mastered over decades. The House of Arras truly represents the pinnacle of Australian sparkling wine.
Medium straw colour with a fresh golden hue, the House of Arras Brut Elite 1301 retains a brilliant clarity and an ultra-fine and persistent bead. Exotic characters are drawn together in this captivating wine including white peach, lychee, spice and jasmine.
Grant Burge Pinot Noir Chardonnay – $29.99
Our bottle fermented Pinot Noir Chardonnay is made from a majority of fruit grown in the elevated cool climate regions of the Adelaide Hills, Alpine Valley, and Eden Valley. The grapes produced here have delicate, yet quite intense flavours, as well as the natural acidity and lean, elegant structure that are required to make high-quality sparkling wine in the tradition of champagne.
Croser Rose – $27.99
Made by the good folks at Petaluma with fruit sourced from the Picadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills, the Croser wines have long been some of Australia’s best sparkling’s. A sublime rose sourced from premium Piccadilly Valley fruit with Pomegranate, wild strawberry and cherry aromas bursting from the glass. This is creamy, stylish and downright delicious.
