Sparkling-sweet New Year

The Jerusalem Post - The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - TRENDING -

Blue Nun

The Blue Nun white sparkling wine is light and fresh with trop­i­cal-fruit aro­mas and golden color. The Blue Nun Rosé is pretty and aro­matic, per­fect as an aper­i­tif for the spe­cial evening. NIS 55.

Diva Cos­mopoli­tan

Made from ap­ple cider and fil­tered through gold threads, the peachy Diva Cos­mopoli­tan Cel­e­bra­tion Edi­tion from Riga is kosher and won­der­ful with desserts. NIS 25.

JP Chenet ice edi­tion, Rose and White

Open the party with these white and rosé medium-sweet sparkling French wines. The rosé is a pretty and at­trac­tive salmon color, with a rich fruity aroma. Serve chilled in a red-wine glass over three ice cubes. The Ice White has flo­ral aro­mas with lovely trop­i­cal fruit fla­vors and smooth-min­eral mouth. If you still have tra­di­tional wide cham­pagne glasses, this is the wine to serve in them. NIS 35.

Mar­tini Asti

Made from aro­matic Mus­cato grapes, Mar­tini Asti is sweet with hints of honey and peach aro­mas as well as pineap­ple and mango. A lovely sweet wine for those with a sweet tooth. Serve well chilled. NIS 70.

Tom­masi Pinot Noir Brut

This tra­di­tional wine from the Tom­masi Valpo­li­cella Clas­sico wine re­gion in north­ern Italy is a lovely dry sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. The wine is very el­e­gant and fresh, well bal­anced with nice acid­ity, and rich fruity aro­mas. Ex­cel­lent choice for NIS 69.

Gamla Hash­mura

Last but cer­tainly not least, and in fact, from this list, def­i­nitely our fa­vorite, the No. 1 Is­raeli sparkling wine is Gamla Brut by Golan Heights. The Gamla Hash­mura NV is a dry and lovely blend of Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay made in the cham­pagne method aged at least 12 months in the bot­tle. The dry aro­matic wine makes for a per­fect aper­i­tif but is also a won­der­ful ac­com­pa­ni­ment for a cel­e­bra­tory New Year din­ner – my choice for this year. NIS 75.
