Sparkling Wine: The Bubbles That Make All the Difference

When it comes to wine, there's nothing quite as captivating as a glass of sparkling wine. It's not just the taste that sets it apart, but the bubbles that dance in the glass. But how are those bubbles made? And what sets Champagne apart from other sparkling wines? Let's take a closer look.

The Making of Sparkling Wine

Sparkling wine is made by adding yeast and sugar to a dry wine, which is then bottled. The yeast consumes the sugar, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide. It's the trapped carbon dioxide that creates the bubbles. This process is called the "second fermentation."

During the second fermentation, a sediment is produced. This sediment is removed from the bottle, and the bottle is topped up with the same mixture of yeast and sugar. The wine is then left to mature in the cellar.

Champagne: The King of Sparkling Wines

The most prestigious name in sparkling wine is Champagne. It has legal protection, and only wines made in the Champagne region using the "Champagne method" can bear the name Champagne. The Champagne method is also known as the "traditional method" or "méthode champenoise."

Champagne is renowned for its fine and persistent bubbles, which rise steadily from the bottom of the glass. This is a result of the way Champagne is made, with a second fermentation taking place in the bottle. This process can take years, and the resulting wine is complex and elegant.

Organic and Vegan Sparkling Wines

At Absolute Organic Wine, we believe that Champagne made organically truly expresses the essence of the vineyard where it's produced. Organically grown grapes are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, allowing the grapes to fully express themselves. This results in a wine that is vibrant and full of life.

All our sparkling wines are organic or vegan and are great examples of the different regions where they are grown. We offer a range of sparkling wines, from light and refreshing to complex and full-bodied. And the best part? You can order online and have your wine delivered to Northern Ireland, the UK, or the Republic of Ireland.

In Conclusion

Sparkling wine is more than just grape juice, alcohol, and bubbles. It's a complex and fascinating beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries. Whether you prefer Champagne or another sparkling wine, there's no denying the allure of those tiny bubbles dancing in the glass. At Absolute Organic Wine, we're proud to offer a range of organic and vegan sparkling wines that are sure to delight your taste buds.
