Light and sparkling, this fresh peach taste reminds us of spring.
Lanson Rose Label Brut Rosé NV, £37, www.ocadoco.com
We adore this fizz for it’s limited edition bottle alone. One of our go-to Champagnes, Lanson has impressed us with this Rose edition which features a crisp finish with juicy notes of strawberry.
A fantastic medium-bodied, smooth Pinot Noir, produced in the heart of New Zealand’s Marlborough. Juicy notes of cherry and raspberry make this the perfect accompaniment to a game, lamb or poultry Sunday Roast.
Freixenet’s Cordon Rosado Rosé Cava, £10.75, www.ocado.com
This elegant sparkle is blended with two Spanish red grape varieties, Trepat and Garnacha, which gives the pretty pink hue and lends to a sweeter taste than traditional Brut Cava.
Bottega White Gold Pinot Noir White Sparkling Wine, £21.94, www.amazon.co.uk
Fruit and flowery, an Italian bubbly with hints of apricot and dried fruit, and the high-shine silver bottle looks super fabulous. This is one of our tried & tested best, a real favourite among the G&G team (who are now spending their lunch break stocking up online!)
Villa Oppi , Vino Spumante, Extra Dry, £12.99, TheWineDrinker.co.uk
Who doesn’t love a crisp flute of Spumante (a more prominent sparkle than your regular Prosecco). This prestige Chardonnay-Pinot Nero blend has tiny refined bubbles and delicious hints of fresh apples, pears and spicy vanilla.
Sparkling Rose Blossom, £2.99, www.aldi.com
The ultimate party pleaser – this pink fizz is the perfect low-alcohol drink to clink to. At this price it would be just rude not to!
