Sinuous and secure, the bearing of a goddess. Delicate lips and sharp tongue, it achieves a balance between grains of salt and white flower petals at the height of their splendour.
Intense notes of freshly baked bread and yeast blended with ripe yellow fruit and sweet flowers. Well-defined, dry and slightly bitter all combined to denote a great harmony.
If one thing’s for sure, Prosecco is loved by all! But there is Prosecco and Prosecco and Ruggeri is definitely one of our favourites.
Located in the famed Santo Stefano village in the heart of the Prosecco wine region, the Ruggeri winery is overlooking the dramatic, dream-like beauty of the steep slopes dotted with century old Glera vines.
This splendid hilly area enjoys a unique blend of climate, soil and exposure producing the best quality grapes of the entire appellation hence resulting in wines with the finest texture, concentration and the greatest length.
Ruggeri is a family owned winery with a centuries-old tradition in viticulture but it’s also considered a benchmark for quality Prosecco.
Ruggeri’s beautiful Prosecco is bursting with fruity and floral aromas of green apple, pear and lemon finishing with a touch of almond which adds complexity. Crisp acidity and persistent fine bubbles lead into a dry, refreshing finish. In 2 words? Graceful and vibrant.
Perfect as an aperitif and ideal with fish, this wine goes particularly well with hors d’oeuvres and light first courses.
If you wanted a superb example of excellent value for money when it comes to bubbles, this is it! This, believe it or not, will give many Champagnes at $60-$70 a run for their money! Made from a blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Chardonnay which are fermented separately before blending, and then bottled and aged on its lees for 2 years which is longer than most Champagnes nowadays. The palate is smooth, silky and beautifully textured, with outstanding depth, power and beautiful refined bubbles. If you are unfamiliar with Cava, we strongly recommend that you try some. You will be impressed!
This champagne is famous for its highly expressive bouquet, which stems from the very careful preservation of the grape's natural fresh red fruit aromas. It is one of the rare rosé champagnes to be made using the maceration (skin contact) technique, which gives it the extraordinary depth and freshness that has made it the benchmark for rosé champagne around the world. Intensely fruity flavours begin clean and well-defined upon entry, the wine then opens up to provide a melange of flavours consisting of fresh strawberries, raspberries and wild cherries. It has great length and is rounded and supple on the finish.
There is really very little introduction needed for this classical Champagne house which has always been one of the benchmarks in Champagne. This classic champagne blend uses grapes from a given year, with the addition of reserve wines. Champagne author Tom Stevenson describes the house style as "classic, Pinot-dominated Champagnes of great potential longevity and complexity" which "tends to go toasty". The blend includes up to 10% reserve wines, which may be up to fifteen years old. This gives the special cuvee complexity and structure.
After being without it for almost 2 years, we welcome back this magnificent bubbly that has been with us for over 10 years. We get more requests for this than any other bubbly that we’ve ever stocked. And of course, once you try it, it’s quite understandable. It is an unpretentious, light, dry, very refreshing and crisp bubbly with lovely acidity, refined bubbles and ideal for big functions or just for the weekend! You can drink it on its own, you can mix it with orange juice, cassis etc. At the price it is unequal value for money.
We also welcome back our beloved Paul Louis after being out of it for a long time. This is made from Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and in the Traditional Method of Champagne, first fermentation and second fermentation in bottle, yeasty, rich and full bodied, with lovely refined and tiny bubbles, long bead and lovely balance. A great substitute for Champagne at a fraction of the cost. Something to be enjoyed on its own or also with fish, anti-pasta etc.
