Welcome back to our Fresh Choice Nelson wine aficionado, Neil Hodgson. This week Neil has some recommendations for your Christmas Champagne and sparkling wine. Take it away, Neil…
It seems a little strange to me that just as we’re all about to buy our Christmas Champagne wine companies drop their prices. After all, it’s the time of year when people are prepared to pay a little more for special occasion treats; and Champagne and sparkling wine certainly fits that description.
But it’s good news for customers who are in the mood to celebrate when some stunningly good buys from the world’s premier sparkling wine region, Champagne, arrive in store. So, let’s not argue with the decision to discount premium products. Instead, take advantage of the once-a-year generosity shown by these wonderful producers and stock up for the weeks ahead.
Christmas Champagne and Sparkling Wine @ Fresh Choice Nelson:
The Grocer, at Fresh Choice Nelson, certainly takes advantage of the deals offered to him, so, he can pass these on to us. He makes sure he can offer the best possible prices for Christmas Champagne.
Of course, when the big boys drop their prices, others follow. This means there are also some great deals on locally produced sparkling wines. One of my favourites is the Amisfield sparkling wine ($45). This wine has a fine mousse when you pour it. It also exhibits beautiful fruit characters and balanced, fresh acidity in the finish. It’s a delicious wine.
As well as a range of great value New Zealand sparkling wines the Grocer also has some fantastic Champagne brands.
- Veuve Cliquot – $60
- Moët & Chandon – $50
- Bollinger and Tattinger – Between $50 and $150 a bottle
If you want to try something very special, you’ll also discover a range of ultra-premium Champagnes.
