Sparkling Wine

There is clearly one big boy on the block when it comes to fizz and that’s Champagne. Now, although he is a nice big boy, producing some of the most memorable, awe-inspiring sparkling wine on the planet, there is a whole world of fizz out there, waiting to be explored. Whether it’s for celebrating getting engaged, getting a 1:1, or just getting through Monday, there is a fizz for you here at Oddbins.

Sparkling wine comes in many different guises - it can range from semi-seco (sweet) to Brut Nature (bone-dry) - and is made in an almighty array of countries. Italy has Prosecco which is light and fruity, while Spain has Cava which is their answer to Champagne and is super food-friendly. Even Tasmania boasts a delicious fizz that we think could only have been made with divine help – Jansz.

Another of our favourites is Portuguese sparkling. The Pato family – Luis and his daughter Filipa – each hold their own when it comes to still winemaking, but my oh my do they produce some cracking fizz too. Luis’ mousse-y, lemony, chalky Metodo Antigo should have a licence to thrill, IMHO. One, two three… go!

  1. Anna De Codorníu Brut Nature NV Cava

    Anna De Codorníu Brut Nature NV Cava

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Codorníu has an impressive 500 year history and is still, amazingly, a family-run enterprise. The Codornius were the first Spaniards to use Champagne’s ‘traditional’ method of production, which ensures extraordinary quality, and also lobbied DO Cava to allow the use of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

    As such “Anna” was the first cava to be made using Chardonnay and there is something very Champagne-like about this premium cava. You’ll find bright aromas of tropical fruit and a soft well-balanced and refreshing palate, with elegant citrus notes and fine, persistent bubbles.

    If this is what history tastes like, then we’ll be, er, eating more history.

    Casa Santos Lima Espumante Brut 2013

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Santos Lima wines are 100% family owned vineyards (all 400ha of them!), who produce the equivalent to 14 million bottles of wine! Now, get your heads around this one. A Champagne method sparkling wine made with Chardonnay and Arinto. No, wait, wait. Let us explain. Casa Santos Lima Vinho Espumante is brut. It spends 10 months on the lees, which gives it a touch of soft brioche combined with citrus fruits and a delicate floral touch, reminiscing white flowers. Take in its elegant and persistent bubble, which gives it a medium mouth feel and a long finish. This is sparkling wine with a Champagne edge, and you don’t need a special occasion as an excuse to pop the cork. Perfect!

  5. Château de l'Aulée Crémant de Loire 'Cuvée Jeanne d'Arc' Sparkling Wine

    Cuvée Jeanne d'Arc is named after the vineyard where the Chenin Blanc grapes are grown and where Ms Arc is said to have rested, en route to meet the King-to-be, Charles VII, at nearby Chinon.

    It is also made by the former winemaker of Champagne Houses including Bollinger. With a pedigree like that you’d be expecting something special and, by gum, you’ve got it.

    Jeanne d’Arc tastes like the freshly pressed juice of russet apples, with an exhilarating sherbet streak. Bet she never thought she’d hear that.

    If you're one of those for whom the presentation value and the a-la-Francaise element of a Champagne are essential but like many of us can't dispense with the extra price premium, then this affordable Champagne-a-like might just get your favour. (This is far and away more amiable and drinkable on a Wednesday afternoon anyway).

    With the looks, both in bottle and out, once the party's in full swing, you really will be holding a glass of the real thing!

    £10.00

    Bruce began Friday drinks by plonking a bottle of cava on the table. He announced. ' No lager tonight dudes, time to try something different.'

    Most of the time, sparkling wine is perceived as purely a celebratory drink. But some devotees of this refreshing wine-style drink it whenever the mood occurs i.e. having a pint or a glass of wine with a mate. Cava is outstanding quality, traditionally made (Like Champagne) and you don't need to sell your goldfish to buy some.

    Combine this concept along with the amazing pioneer producer Codorniu, will take you straight to their Ecologica Cava Brut NV. Lemon zest, green apples and fresh almond aromas. Followed by a delicious creamy mousse. Some slightly conservative friends may think it's fancy, but others may greet you with a grin. ;)

    £17.00

    You have to be careful when you describe just how good this new Prosecco is. People will assume you're exaggerating. First, there's its alluring colour - in the glass a silvery-grey glint of precious stone.

    Then there's the taste: a hard-to-describe magical balance between dryness and the subtle fruit of late-picked Bramley apples. You'll see what we mean when you try it; not just Prosecco, this is super-charged-Prosecco.

    £32.00

    The vines responsible for this distinguished, heavenly sparkling wine hail from across the water in Champagne but, boy, are they thriving in Kent.

    Yes the ‘Garden of England’, with its warm summers, tempered by the cooling North Sea breeze seems to agree very well indeed with these Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier cultivars, resulting in wines like this incredibly popular, lemony, nutty, toffee apple-esque corker. Channel hopping never tasted so good.

    Gusbourne Sparkling Rosé 2012

    £35.00

    Appledore sounds like a realm from Lord of the Rings, populated by wizards, hobbits and dragons. But it’s not; it’s the sleepy home to Gusbourne Estate in rural Kent. However, this fizz tastes so good that you may be forgiven for thinking that sorcery has been involved in its production.

    The vines were pinched from Champagne, but the result is very British. With a hue as delicate as an English rose, this is packed with gently spiced biscuits, shortcake, strawberries, cream, red apples and charm. Watch out for Gollum, this is exceedingly precious.

    If you turn up at most people’s houses with a bottle Grüner Veltliner, they’ll probably look excited and will say ‘Ooh, sounds exotic!!’ to which you’ll smoothly say ‘It’s Austrian darling. Not a very well-known grape variety. Oodles of zingy orchard fruit,’ and they will be suitably impressed.

    If you turn up with a limited-supply, sparkling Grüner Veltliner, they’ll look really excited and say ‘Oh, you shouldn’t have!’ to which you’ll say ‘Yah. It’s a limited supply sparkling Grüner Veltliner. Pretty rare. Delicious.’ You may want to tone down the nonchalance a little if you actually want to be let through the door.

    Jansz is like a Champagne house in a parallel universe, which enjoys the same cool, temperate weather, but where everyone is laid back in that idiosyncratically Australian way.

    They don't call their winemaking method champenoise, but Tasmanoise. And the best bit? The wine is out of this world, with flavours of lemon, honeysuckle and toasted hazelnuts, at a very real-worldly price.

    £21.00

    £21.00

    When you think of sparkling wine grapes, you might automatically gravitate to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the classic Champagne varietals. Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt might not be the first grapes you'd think of, even though they make up 75% of this delicious fizz grown in Gumpoldskirchen in Austria. Which might not be the first place you'd think of either.

    Cultivated biodynamically - as you might not expect - it has apple and citrus flavours from the Grüner and rich, creamy brioche touches from the red grapes. And the other 25%? Pinot Noir, of course. What are we, weird or something?

    Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV

    £17.00

    £17.00

    This sparkler is a curious and wonderful thing. It is made using an ancient ‘Rural’ Method in which, unusually, the wine only undergoes fermentation once, using only naturally occurring sugars.

    If you are slightly bored and confused by this and care not for the methods used, let us tell you that it is made by Luis Pato, the Baron of the Bairrada and one of the most renowned producers in Portugal, who calls it his 'take on Prosecco'.

    If you’re now muttering ‘meh’ at your screen because you don’t give a monkeys about famous producers, let us simply say that it is an elegant and focused wine with generous mousse and aromas of white flowers and citrus. Does that do it?

    £8.25

    Whilst James Bond drinks Dom Perignon 1946, Inspector Clouseau probably drinks Polloni Spumante. If we compare James Bond and Inspector Clouseau, it is true that we would trust James Bond way more than Inspector Clouseau when it comes to saving the world.

    Bond is classy, he gets all the girls and Bond is ""Bond, James Bond"". Clouseau tears his costume when he needs to unlock a door with a simple key, his wife cheats on him and Clouseau is just ""Inspector Clouseau"". But in the end, Clouseau manages to solve affairs and becomes the pet peeve of all criminals.

    The Polloni Spumante might not be as prestigious as Dom Perignon 1946, but in the end the result is the same and provides us with a different kind of pleasure.

    ‘Like a rainy day that is not wet/like a gambling fiend that does not bet/like Dracula without his fangs/like the boogie-to-the-boogie without the boogie bang’ rapped the Sugarhill Gang in 1979, on the frankly long version of Rapper's Delight. ‘What is?’ enquired your then teenage scribe, who never actually found out.

    He might have been talking about this paradoxical yet utterly delicious non-fizzy Prosecco, which has all the flavour of its sparkling siblings but without a bubble to be seen.

    Green apple aromas meet floral touches on the way to a full and luscious, spumante-spurning palate. ‘Like toil and trouble without the double double/like Prosecco wine that doesn't have the bubbles,’ they may have added. Maybe they did. Maybe the song kept writing itself, a twelve-inch enormo-mix ending only at the beginning in an infinite loop. Who knows..?

The ViVo Co-operative hands an umbrella to over 2,300 growers in the vicinity, covering 3,600 hectares (think 25 Hyde Parks) and providing eight wineries in the area to cover members' grape drop-off, collection and winemaking requirements.

    It also offers a business structure to give all of these small winemakers access to the domestic and foreign markets. So much for the cup of sugar, then. Still, you can always pop round with a bottle of this delightful, floral, citrussy fizz and have a chinwag about that weird bloke from three hectares down the road!

    Old as the hills, the Follador winery. Giovanni Follador first blushingly received the Wine Quality Award from the ‘Doge’, or Duke, of Venice way back in 1769 and started a rather big, and rather tasty ball rolling.

    His great, great, (great?) grandson, Gianfranco, is the one keeping the ball rolling today and boy does he know how to handle this ball.

    Alright we’ll drop the ball metaphor… this Prosecco has a charmingly fine, delicate mousse, with pure, subtle and fresh flavours of acacia, green apple and jasmine.

    Said with a rolled ‘r’, the ‘Ren’ is like this Cava’s gently playful fizz; the ‘ai’ is like the subtly creamy notes; the ‘xenҫa’ (pronounced ‘shensa’) is like the cool, clean rush of green fruit that whooshes over the palate like a cooling breeze in a Spanish orchard. Boom!

Super-Soft Bubbles from the Kinsgland method make this one stand out from the flock with flavours that wash across the palate, filling the mouth with white stone fruit characters and a refreshing citrus acidity.

    The b-ewe-tiful bubbles are gentle yet incredibly persistent. The finish is long, fruit-toned and zestily more-ish. It’ll make you happier than a lamb in springtime!

    Mortified that he couldn't solve her dilemma, her dedicated host dashed to the local vineyard to see what they could do. He was directed to young winemaker Fabian Valenzuela. “He'll have the answer,” they said. “Tap his brain.” Such was his rush, that the host took this last sentence to be the winemaker's name, and ran to him calling “Tapiz, Tapiz!” Of course, Fabian had the answer. Just make a Sparkling Rose Malbec! And from that day, his new nickname stuck.
