How are sparkling wines made?
Fine sparkling wines are made using the traditional method, also known as méthode traditionnelle or méthode champenoise. While it is time-consuming and labour-intensive to craft, it’s prized for producing high-quality sparkling wines with crisp bubbles and complex flavours.
After cultivating the grapes from a varietal or blend, the wine is fermented in multiple stages in barrels or tanks, as well as in the bottles and on lees, before it’s riddled and undergoes a disgorgement process to remove the yeast sediment.
Before corking and ageing, sugar may be added to adjust their level of sweetness to determine the style of sparkling wine for sale, i.e. brut, extra brut or sec.
Other methods, such as the Charmat method or carbonation, are used for producing sparkling wines with different characteristics and at a lower cost.
How do you choose the right sparkling wine?
- Consider your budget and occasion — Are you looking for an affordable label you can enjoy casually or use to add to your cooking, or do you want a premium sparkling wine in Australia you want to reserve for special occasions?
- Think about your style — Do you want to sip on an extra sweet expression of Moscato, a fruity prosecco, or do you want to enjoy the spicy finish of chardonnay pinot noir?
- Where does it lean on your palate — Are you looking for a sparkling wine in Australia that falls sec (sweet), demi-sec (sei sweet), brut (dry) or extra brut (extra dry)?
What is the best pairing for sparkling wine?
- With notes of pear, apple, honey and stone fruits, the acidity of sparkling wines in Australia pairs perfectly with creamy and hard cheeses, helping to cut through the rich and sometimes heavy taste of cheese boards and charcuterie boards.
- If sashimi, sushi and other seafood dishes are on the menu, the clean finish and complementary delicate flavours of sparkling wine help keep your meal in balance without overpowering each other.
- Sparkling wine’s versatile and broad flavour profile makes it ideal for matching with canapes and light appetisers, which is why it makes a common pairing of catered events and receptions.
What is the best way to serve sparkling wine?
Fluted Champagne-style glasses feature a tall and narrow body and a smaller opening that allows your sparkling wine in Australia to develop its bubbles and maintain its effervescence for longer.
For people who love the taste of sparkling wine but with a milder finish, coupe glasses offer a dramatic silhouette and help develop your drop’s flavours. With a wide mouth, it more quickly loses its carbonation, resulting in a mellower finish if you don’t care for the bubble’s crisp bite.
What are the different types of sparkling wine?
Sparkling wine is most known for its Champagne-style of wine that has been produced outside its namesake PDO — protected designation of origin in France. However, you can buy sparkling wine in various styles, including sparkling rosé, sparkling red, prosecco, sekt, cava and Franciacorta.
What is the ideal serving temperature for sparkling wine?
Sparkling wine is best enjoyed between 6℃ to 10℃. Paying a little careful attention to its serving temperature will give you an optimal drinking experience, as cold temperatures can dull its delicate flavour, and it can lose its effervescence if served warmer.
To ensure you can enjoy the most flavour from your favourite sparkling wine in Australia, we suggest you remove your bottle from the fridge between five and 10 minutes prior to serving so you can enjoy the full palate of flavours while maintaining a cooler temperature.
What is the alcohol content of sparkling wine?
We carry a wide range of sparkling wine for sale, with most ranging from 11% to 13.5% Alcohol By Volume (ABV).
How should sparkling wine be stored?
When you’re looking to buy sparkling wine for short and long-term storage, a wine fridge set between 7℃ and 13℃ is the best solution to preserve your bottle’s delicate flavour and finish.
To prolong its life, we recommend mounting it horizontally to ensure the cork is constantly in contact with the bubbles to maintain a strong seal and prevent exposure to oxygen. It should also be stored in a dark area to avoid exposure to light, which can prematurely age and tarnish your sparkling wine, and keep it in a place free from vibrations emanating from appliances or high-traffic areas.
