Wildly Organic Cuvée NV


The flavour train has left the station and it appears this fizz didn't jump on board.

Philip Shaw Wines No 10 Sparkling NV

Yet to be released, this sample was pulled out from the riddling rack - luck me. Disgorged by yours truly, I didn't even make a mess of myself - winning!

Sorby Adams Morticia Sparkling Shiraz NV


Sparkling Shiraz is a great drink but sadly it gets pigeonholed as a "Christmas drink". Park that idea and reap the reward when you pop that top off this on any of the other 364 days of the year.

Woodstock Old Fortified Tawny Style NV


Winter is fortified season. As part of a new tasting experience at the Woodstock cellar door, three fortifieds and a Botrytis have been matched with Haigh's Chocolates. A dark chocolate almond cluster is the weapon of choice with this Old Fortified Tawny Style.

Woodstock Muscat NV


Dangerously smooth, I received this Muscat from Woodstock as part of their celebration of International Chocolate Day. Three fortifieds and a Botrytis have been matched with Haigh's Chocolates for a very different cellar door tasting.

O'Leary Walker Romalo Sparkling Shiraz NV


Named in honour of Norman and Hurtle Walker, Nick Walker's respective father and grandfather who spent over 100 years in the wine industry., the Romalo cellars were where they honed their craft. Wrap your lips around this tasty Sparkling Shiraz.

Howard Park Petit Jeté NV


Really enjoyable, this is a serious looking fizz that is not so serious on the hip pocket. Nicely done from the crew at Howard Park.

Pommery Brut Royal Champagne NV


There's something about Champagne that just makes you feel a little bit fancy. This Pommery impressed deluxe. A blend of forty crus, it sees 36 months in bottle before release.

Thomson & Scott Noughty Organic Sparkling Chardonnay NV

Throw it in a flute and there’s a good chance your friends wouldn’t know it's alcohol-free except the dancing won’t get worse the more you have… A fabulous alternative when seeking a non-alcoholic fizz.

Howard Park Jeté Brut NV


A wonderfully structured and balanced sparkling from Howard Park. I'll have another glass thanks.

Penley Estate Georgina Sparkling Shiraz NV


This time of year is cricket season and sparkling Shiraz season. Here is a handy wine from Penley Estate.

Golden Grove Estate Marnita Muscat NV

Soak your dried fruit in this overnight and then spoon over ice cream. There is a Christmas hack. Or just sip slow. A fab non-vintage Muscat made from Golden Grove Estate's 65-year-old vines - the oldest and the original vines planted on the estate.

Louis Pommery England Brut NV

Vranken-Pommery has become the first Grande Marque Champagne House to produce a sparkling wine from English Terroir.

When you pour all your knowledge and expertise into one bottle to celebrate a milestone, this is what you get. A sleek, detailed and considered wine from Gundog Estate winemaker Matt Burton.

Yelland and Papps Old Vine Grenache NV


This wine grows on you - big time. The marriage of three vintages (2018, 2019, 2021) from the same vineyard, it's a bit like stepping onto a cable bridge. Initially a little shaky, with some forward momentum you can't help but embrace the vista and natural beauty that surrounds you.
