Six names were picked out of the champagne bucket and four brave souls agreed to taste fizz for free!
Here are the thoughts from three tasters who have replied so far!
Tara Bicker tasted Prosecco Vignarosa, (which has had some mixed reviews tbh), awarded it four stars and said:
I really liked this Prosecco and I didn’t expect to after reading previous mixed reviews. It is dry but very drinkable! I really enjoyed it’s subtle citrus flavours. Would be good with friends at a summer BBQ in my opinion. A good champagne substitute with lots of fizz.
Four of us tasted the Champagne. We all noted the delicate colour and sparkling bubble in the flute although this soon dwindled.
There was a distinct fruity nose: one thought mango, one caramelised pear (tarte tatin) and certainly picked up the brioche and almond mentioned by Lionel Periner. Lightly sugared, it gave plenty of grape to the palate with something of citrus. It was not dry enough for one but fine for the other three. One of these thought it more wine than fizz.
Definitely a dessert wine rather than other courses of a meal, unless perhaps with cheese.
Bev Catlow tasted La Farra Prosecco DOCG Extra Dry she was a fan and gave it 5 stars, she said:
What an absolute pleasure to be asked to ‘taste’ this delightful La Farra Prosecco!
Shared the bottle with my sister, and a glass for my niece, with some strawberry and summer fruit tarts – totally complimented the sweet pastries.
La Farra Prosecco is unique and subtlety fruity fizz, far superior to the usual dry fizz. The apple through to pear fruity tones are so subtle but highly defined with every sip making it a lovely sweet but dry sensation.
La Farra is a easy to drink Prosecco equally nice as a stand alone drink or accompanying a dessert or sweet snack.
I would not hesitate to buy this delightful Prosecco
We are popping names into the champagne bucket for June very soon…keep an eye on your emails.
Cheers from Fizz HQ!
