PROSECCO

Venice might be sinking but its bubbles are rising. Light, fruity and inexpensive, prosecco is enjoying huge popularity in Europe right now, and it helps that this variety of bubbles made with glera grapes practically screams “summer gathering”. We love: The almost-clear and super-crisp Graham Norton Prosecco, a new edition to his stable. RRP$19.99, 750ml, at selected Liquorland stores

Can’t choose between rosé or bubbles? You don’t have to, with more and more good-quality sparkling rosé appearing, from those with a mere blush to the almost-vermillion. We love: Try Tohu Rewa Rosé – it’s elegant yet fun, made with Marlborough pinot noir. RRP$39.99, 750ml, at selected Liquorland stores
 

Campo Viejo, Campo Viejo Cava, cava, bubbles, Christmas bubbles, Christmas wine, New Years Eve, New Years Eve wine, New Years Eve bubbles, celebration





CAVA

Like its counterpart over the Pyrenees, cava ranges from bone-dry to rather sweet. We love: Campo Viejo, for its citrus and apple flavours and persistent bubbles. RRP$16.99, 750ml, at selected Liquorland stores
 

Piper Heidsieck, Piper Heidsieck Champagne, champagne, bubbles, Christmas bubbles, Christmas wine, New Years Eve, New Years Eve wine, New Years Eve bubbles, celebrationCHAMPAGNE

Of course there are always special occasions that demand champagne, and any decent example should greet your lips with persistent, small bubbles and toasty or biscuity flavours. We love: Piper Heidsieck, which has luxurious flavours of fresh hazelnut, toast and orchard fruits, plus exciting notes of pineapple and white pepper. RRP$64.99, 750ml at Liquorland stores
 

Veuve du Vernay, Veuve du Vernay sparkling wine, sparkling wine, French sparkling wine, bubbles, Christmas bubbles, Christmas wine, New Years Eve, New Years Eve wine, New Years Eve bubbles, celebration




SPARKLING WINE

They’re always pretty friendly on the pocket, but some sparkling wines are far friendlier to the palate than others. We love: Veuve du Vernay for its popular appeal, stone fruit flavours and well-rounded smoothness. RRP$17.99, 750ml at Liquorland stores
