Prosecco can always be relied on to save the day. Here’s the weekend and the footie scores haven’t gone exactly as I would have liked.
As I write, it’s ten minutes since I poured Premier Estates’ Italian Prosecco Extra Dry, ( 11.5% abv RRP £7.99) and it is still perkily popping in the glass.
Premier Estates make a couple of styles of prosecco, a pink, Italian Grand Rosé, and this frisky fizzbomb which won a Bronze medal at the International Wine Challenge in 2015.
Aromas? OK … let’s go. Well its prosecco. It’s light, its feminine, it’s flirty and floral. To taste, a fresh clean bite of apple and lemon and a bubble of stone fruit too.
The Other Half really likes it, so that’s praise in itself.
I like it too, probably because its extra dry, with a little bit of creaminess, so not as thin and sweet as some glasses of prosecco can reveal themselves to be.
You can buy a case of six (£47.94) on Premier Estate’s website; or browse around in various retailers.
Happy Saturday night.
