Te Hua Sparkling


Bottle of

With Easter Weekend coming up, I plan to drink my fair share of Prosecco. Friends of ours hold an annual Easter Egg hunt in their garden on Sunday morning, with bacon sandwiches and Prosecco for the grown ups whilst the kids eat as many chocolate eggs in the shortest time possible. Now, I love a glass of Prosecco. Just not when they’re too sweet. It should still be refreshing, IMHO. So I loved the idea of this one, a sparkling from New Zealand made from traditional champagne grapes – Chardonnay & Pinot Noir – but with a twist of the floral-scented Muscat grape. And because it is bottled under less pressure that normal sparkling wines, the bubbles are softer too. Basically, more grown up than Prosecco but not as serious as Champagne. Just don’t have it with chocolate eggs. Try cheese straws instead. And being Majestic, it’s cheaper if you buy 2 or more bottles (£8.99/bottle).

    We have just discovered Te Hua, after losing out favourite – Lindauer ! It is a lovely refreshing, much better drink, than prosecco ( which our kids seem to like) , but there is no comparison. Now it seems it’s becoming difficult to find, having always shopped at the Calais wine Superstore. We have ours with prawns…..😉

      It’s great, isn’t it? Yes, you have to kiss more frogs to find princes these days…!
