Guide to giving bubbles...

Posted by [email protected] on December 20, 2016

Christmas is a time for giving, and often the best Christmas gift you can give is one that you would enjoy receiving yourself, and who doesn't enjoy a glass of bubbles.

If you're still searching for festive inspiration, here's our No.1 Family Estate Christmas gift guide to bubbles.

For your boss... No.1 Cuvée

One of New Zealand’s most highly regarded Methode Traditionelle wines. The wine is 100% chardonnay (blanc de blancs) – A perfect balance between ripe, fresh fruit and toasty yet creamy yeast.  It displays a fine, consistent bead and firm mousse resulting in a complex character. The palate is smooth and seamless with a wonderful balance of acidity, giving a wine of elegance and style.

Your boss will be so impressed we'd be surprised if you didn't get a pay rise next year!

For your bestie... No.1 Rosé

This wine celebrates the superb climate of Marlborough, delicate salmon-pink with a mass of tiny bubbles, the wine offers a seamless balance of subtle cherry and almond hints combined with a fresh acidity. Dry, yet fresh and elegant, this wine leaves a lasting impression of opulence and splendour.

Gift your bestie a girls night in, with a bottle of No 1 Rosé and, of course, your company! Someone has to share that bottle with her...

For the teacher... No.1 Assemblé

It's the end of the school year and time to thank the tutors that have guided and educated your little poppets over the past twelve months.

Give them a fabulous bottle of bubbles for top marks!

For the family - A mixed case

Hint of Pink Case, contains 2 bottles of each of the above wines. You might want to buy it to share with your own family or to give to the family next door, hopefully you'll be invited around to share it!

Getting Toasty!

Here at No.1 Family Estate, we're rather fond of a toast.

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without raising a glass to mark the occasion!

We've no doubt that you have your toasts prepared, but just in case you need a little inspiration here are some of our favourites!
