ALDI Guide to Fizz
New Review

With the Christmas shopping over it’s time to load up again on Fizz for Hogmanay. Here is a wee guide to what is available at Aldi. 

The showstopper: Giotti Prosecco DOCG Jeroboam (£39.99,)
Be everyone’s favourite guest this New Year’s Eve with this gigantic bottle of premium DOCG prosecco, the equivalent of four regular sized bottles. A beautifully pale straw colour, the aroma is light with hints of fresh citrus fruits and wisteria flower. On the palate, the wine is delicate yet serious, with a refreshing acidity and soft sherbet taste. Aldi’s Prosecco Jeroboam is sure to get the Christmas party season started! 

The award-winner: Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut (£11.49, 75cl)
A bestseller and the highly acclaimed award-winning wine from the Champagne house Philizot & Fils, blended from a complex and elegant mix of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. This wine is carefully aged in cellars to create its unique and beautiful taste. A chilled glass of this fizz should not be missed. 

The party-ready prosecco: Collezione Oro Prosecco DOCG (£8.99, 75cl)
This delicate Italian wine exudes as much style as its homeland, offering drinkers light floral notes of sweet honeysuckle and pink lady apples. Crisp and dry on the palate, pair this prosecco with a lemon cheesecake or any other citrus based pudding for the perfect balance of sweet and sharp flavours.  
The vintage vino: Veuve Monsigny Champagne 2004 (£19.99, 75cl)
A rich and bready Champagne, this is the perfect tipple for those looking for a more mature wine. Pair those bready notes with the quintessential English dessert bread and butter pudding, or for something a little fruitier, enjoy with an apple strudel for an indulgent treat! 

The soft sparkler: Zero Point Zero White (£2.49, 75cl)
A great alternative to traditional sparkling wine, ZeroPointZero Sparking White Brut is made with a complex combination of fermented grape juice blended with premium green tea to deliver notes of apple and pear with a pleasing acidity.
