Thierry Triolet is one of the best champagnes to enjoy this party season – as judged by the Independent! They said:

‘ We found the finish was lemony, apply and toasty with plenty of bubbles and sure to be a big people-pleaser for anyone who leans towards a chardonnay-style fizz – the chardonnay grapes from this area of Champagne are famously good. ‘

Bottle of  Savage Grace orange wine with a white label

Savage Grace Orange Wine features in the Independent Best orange wines.

‘Named after winemaker Michael Savage and his wife Grace Hearn, Savage Grace comes from organic vines in America’s Washington state. Light amber in colour, this dry gewurztraminer has all the wonderfully aromatic lychee you’d expect, along with a distinctly spiced, herbal undertone. Created using sustainable farming practices in extremely small quantities, with natural yeast and minimal sulphur, it’s also suitable for vegans.’

Thanking, congratulating, celebrating – fizz fits the bill. The Fizz Company offers an impressive range, plus swift delivery from a single bottle to a mixed case.

Sparkling Riesling – February 2019

Germany is not instantly thought of as being a wine producer, let alone for producing great sparkling wines. However, we have discovered this gem from Pfalz Made from 100% Riesling, this organic, refreshing and mouth-wateringly citrus fizz is very moreish. The crisp taste is a refreshing treat, with ripe lime flavours. It works in perfect partnership with a Thai meal to spice up your romance. Emily Roberts and Sam Blackburn.

Sparkling Shiraz – February 2019

This brilliantly priced fizzy red is certainly different, even though it is made in a similar way to Prosecco to maintain the pure fruit flavours. Made from 100% Shiraz, and at 13.5%, this fizz certainly packs a punch. The Sparkling Shiraz is perfect if you want something different for your romantic night (or simply don’t have time to chill some wine). Expect strong blackcurrant and blackberry flavours as you drink this wonderfully distinct fizz. Emily Roberts and Sam Blackburn.

9 Best Sparkling Reds

Sparkling Shiraz – February 2019

Made by Italian wine producers who upped sticks and moved to Australia, here we have a flexible fizz that can be drunk chilled or at room temperature (ideal if you don’t have time to refrigerate). Created from 100 per cent shiraz grapes, it’s made in a very similar way to prosecco in order to retain its fruity flavour profile – you should be able to taste ripe blackcurrant. We’ll be enjoying ours with pepperoni pizza or barbecued ribs. Stacey Smith

14 Best Proseccos Under £25 for 2019

La Farra Brut – 2019

Perfectly situated in the DOCG area between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, the La Farra vineyard manages to combine the characteristics of both, creating one very superior sparkler. You’ll find a fresh blossom aroma on the nose, followed up with well-rounded ripe peach on the palette. Crunchy apple notes stop this being too cloying, adding a lovely freshness to the mix. If you’re looking for an aperitif, they don’t come much better than this.

A. Bèrgere – December 2018

This vintage champagne is presented in a special shaped magnum bottle which adds to its elegance. The nose is deep, complex and savoury and on the palate there are notes of roasted nuts, honey and mocha – very sumptuous and ideal to enjoy with a wild mushroom risotto. The vintage of 2002 was a memorable and excellent year and, despite the age of this champagne, the finish is extraordinarily fresh. Natasha Heard

Definitive Christmas Collection

Sparkling Shiraz – December 2018

NV Blewitt Springs Estate, Sparkling Shiraz, McLaren Vale, South Australia (£14.99, reduced by 10% if you buy 6 bottles,  I am a firm believer that sparkling Shiraz is a vital category of wine on Christmas Day because it has the uncanny knack of going perfectly with a fully laden Christmas lunch.  Blackberry-themed, but lush and also bone dry on the finish, this is like a red wine crossed with a Champagne, so all bases are ticked!  Aussie will tell you that this is a classic on Christmas Day, and they know a thing or two about great wine!

9 Best Low Sugar Sparkling Wines – The Independent

Premium Pinot Noir Cava Brut Nature – February 2018

From the quirkily named winery 1+1=3 (it’s run by two brothers-in-law who say that together they are better than just two), this is made in exactly the same was as champagne, using the prestigious pinot noir grapes. You should be able to taste clear red fruit, balanced with a creamy nuttiness. Expect soft bubbles and a long finish. Suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, it won a silver medal last year at the International Wine Challenge awards. Stacey Smith
