Celebrating the engagement of Sarah and Scott last night so I obviously had to request a photo of the happy couple with my 5 December wine choice. I did let them keep it, but enjoyed a glass myself too 😜We love this organic sparkler from Familia Zuccardi 🥂
Zuccardi Vida Organica Sparkling Chardonnay 2016
Tasting note: It’s light and crisp with gentle citrus notes and hints of toasted almonds. Very quaffable!
Food match: the perfect sparkler for Christmas morning, so enjoy on its own or with smoked salmon or prawns.
Congratulations to Vina Cobos winemaker, Andres Vignoni, who has been recognised as Young Winemaker of the Year by renowned wine critic, Tim Atkin in his latest 2020 Argentina Report. Andres is winemaker for a number of our Vina Cobos wines, including the hugely popular Felino wines. Great acheivement, Andres, well done!
