Prosecco sales in the UK went up by 75% in 2014 alone; this year sales overtook champagne and 1 in 3 bottles of sparkling wine sold today will be Prosecco. But will this wine strip your teeth of enamel…? This is OK sparkling wine at £9, but we quickly used it to make Aperol Spritz.
Tasting notes: Lively, crisp, aromatic. Fresh with lemon, pear and apple flavours and a floral hint. It has a dry finish and a fine persistent mousse. This prosecco is a blend – it’s 85% Glera, 15% ‘white wine’ – seems vague, I know, but is permissible under Prosecco DOC rules…
