Arniston Bay adds fizz to portfolio

Published:  28 July, 2008

Arniston Bay has launched its first ever sparkling wine.

This non-vintage Charmat Brut is made from Colombard grapes - known for their fresh aromas and natural acidity - by Arniston Bay winemaker, Abraham de Villiers. It joins the range of easy-drinking wines currently in the extensive Arniston Bay portfolio. The traditional bottle is elegantly adorned with a simple label and a distinctive royal blue foil seal around the neck.

This elegant sparkling wine has zesty tropical fruit flavours with fresh bubbles and a clean, crisp finish. It's best enjoyed chilled with a diverse variety of salads, fish and white meat dishes and is a real treat for sparkling wine aficionados.

De Villiers said: "This is a great addition to the Arniston Bay portfolio. We used the fresh, vibrant characteristics of Colombard to make a Charmat that has wonderful aromas and a creamy, delicate palate. It's a great wine for everything from picnics to parties."

Brand and Business Development Manager Barney Davis says: "With sales of sparkling wine continuing to enjoy above average growth in the UK, we see the Arniston Bay Charmat Brut as a natural extension to the range. This makes our offering to the retailer a more complete one, and provides the consumer with a different choice for each drinking occasion."

The Arniston Bay Charmat will retail at £7.99. For trade enquiries please contact 'the company of wine people europe limited' on 020 7418 1840.
