Sparkling Wine On Ice

by Antonio Moschella

Summer has arrived and everybody knows. The fine weather invites to go outside to meet friends or family, or just enjoy reading a book by yourself. A new season nearly always comes with new trends and ideas, in summer, we are looking for refreshing and cool drinks. And this year is the year of ICE sparkling wines.

What’s that, you ask? Usually, you pour your champagne, cava or prosecco into a narrow and high glass and that’s it. No ice cubes allowed in order to preserve the taste and aromas. Because ice melts and waters your wine. However, these Ice sparkling wines are specially created for summer. You have to pour them over ice to enjoy their full saviours during the hot season.

Ice sparkling wines simply are innovative versions of famous champagnes and cavas from Möet & Chandon up to Freixenet. For years, they have been growing a special audience just to excel this summer with hopefully more years to come.

The French winery found an innovative way of tasting the classic Champagne variety. Also available in the pink version, Ice Impérial Rosé, for those who prefer fruitier notes of red and black berries with soft nuances of roses and spices.
