Clandestine Vineyards Break Free Bliss Bomb Pet Nat 2022

 

I'm happy to admit I'm yet to board the Pet Nat train although I'm open-minded enough to keep trying to find 'the one' to completely convert me. Clandestine Vineyards vintner Nick Stacy says this cheeky number will do just that.

Levantine Hill Blanc de Blanc 2016

 

This is a great fizz from Levantine Hill. Classy stuff, I can't help but feel fancy with this in the glass. It offers yet another reason to support local rather than those mass produced Frenchies.

Polka Lilly Pilly De-Alc Sparkling Cuvee 2021

 


The no and low alcohol market is going gangbusters at present. But do you want to drink wine or something made with the addition of grape juice concentrate? If you want the latter with some Lilly Pilly extract for good measure, maybe this is for you? You won't find me in the queue.

Moorilla Extra Brut 2017

 


Muse is 'the subtle and complex' so the label says. And this exemplifies that. A fabulous glass of fizz from Tasmania's Moorilla, I'd happily recommend this ahead of those imported Frenchies at the same price point.

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.

The Natural Wine Co Lightly Sparkling Rosé 2021

The new The Natural Wine Co. Lightly Sparkling White and Rosé are organic, low in alcohol, low in calories, vegan and preservative free. “They’re somewhat of a niche wine, with few in the market,” says Canowindra's Jason O’Dea. “They allow people to ‘stay longer’. The wines are perfect for those looking to lower the amount of alcohol they are consuming, or simply for those wanting a refreshing, enjoyable wine with a touch of fizz.” 

The Natural Wine Co Lightly Sparkling White 2021


Screw the cap and that little pop whispers refreshment. Yes! As the team at The Natural Wine Co say, "Enjoy our new world feel good wine."

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.
