#10 - HOW TO OPTIMISE YOUR SARACENI EXPERIENCE?

WHAT ARE THE RIGHT SIZE OF SPARKLERS BOTTLES?

For around 16 flutes, crack open a magnum rather than two ordinary-sized bottles. Think big!

 

WHAT IS THE PERFECT TEMPERATURE TO DRINK SARACENI PRODUCTS?

For bubbly, too cold a temperature (less than 4°C) reduces the fizz, alters the aromas and even numbs the taste buds. 
On the other hand, too warm a temperature (above 14°C) creates excess foam, which can make the bottle harder to open and mask its aromas. So you must remember this: 4-6°C for the perfect taste, structure and aroma.

 

WHAT KIND OF GLASS TO SERVE SARACENI SPARKLERS IN? 

Serving bubbly in wine glasses is recommended second to flutes. Those for fine wines, with a high stem and a large bowl, are perfect for capturing the specific flavor of each creation like Blumond, Volare and Splendia. 
Or opt for tulip-shaped glasses, not as narrow as flutes but more slender than the classic wine glass, which concentrate the flavors while allowing room for full effervescence.

 

HOW TO FILL THE GLASSES?

To avoid spillage, it is better to serve in two phases: the trick is to pour an initial amount of wine, slowly tilting the glass – the flow along the wall will promote the formation of bubbles. 
Take a pause to allow the foam to subside, then pour a second time to fill half (or two thirds) of the glass.

 

HOW TO CONSERVE THEM? 

 

Our Sparklers are not intended to be kept to one side for long (can you resist to popup a bottle of Blumond?), so drink them quickly to take advantage of its freshness and fruitiness (we recommend to enjoy them within 3 years!).

A happy life of our sparklers is one lived out of sight. And lying down if you plan to not drink it within 6 months! When horizontal, the contact with the wine allows the cork to retain its elasticity, and therefore its water-tightness. In addition, stillness and calm contribute to good conservation: do not handle your bottles incessantly, leave them alone until the time has come to take them back up into the light for tasting.
