Oliver Zeter Sauvignon Blanc Brut, Palatinate, Germany 2019 (from £ 22.95, mumblesfinewines.co.uk; weaverswines.com; Novelwines.co.uk). Summarizing this month’s Observer Food Monthly Summer Wine Choices, I’ve noticed that there are many sparkling wines that for some reason couldn’t be narrowed down to the final choice. This in itself is not uncommon (there were only four slots on the list). But it reflected a trend I’ve noticed over the last five years or so. Of all the categories or styles of wine, sparkling is the fastest evolving. For one thing, it has more, and it comes from more places. However, with some experiments, more grape varieties are now treated like bubbles. Given its lasting popularity as a sparkling wine, Sauvignon Blanc is not surprising, but its spicy greengage, guava and elderberry flowers rival the calm and clarity of the Oliver Zeter. There are few effervescent sauvignons.

Wiston Estate Rose, West Sussex, England NV (starting at £ 28) Waitrose; wistonestate.com). Another combination that owes the marketing department as much as the winemaking decision is the pink fizz. Like Sauvignon Blanc, a great success in the world of white wine (Rosé) is to take into account the bubbling of Fizz’s sales and expect the combination of the two to produce a synergistic effect.

M & S establishes Blanchette de Limoux, France, Nevada (£ 10, Marks & Spencer). The sparkling wine revolution of the 21st century is not just the impact of new things. It is also about the Renaissance of the sparkling region, which may have been overlooked or overlooked when champagne producers decided what sparkling wine should be. This is probably the most obvious in France. Loire is one of many parts of France and poses an increasingly serious challenge to the hegemony of Champagne’s sparkling wines. com) Blend Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc to create super-charged, super-dry, super-refreshing apple-scented hits. Further south, the cool climate of the otherwise warm Languedoc hills is worth more than Limoux, the source of the Fizz component of Marks & Sparks’ crisp new off-the-beat track found range. Few sparkling areas are offered. A very good example of these excellent bottled fermented sparkling wines, filled with the juiciness and soft mousse of green apples.
