All of the first quarter of my top 100 wines really sparkle.
 
These 25+ are listed upwards in price with UK stockists, often Lea and Sandeman because they have a particularly wide range, and this helps to indicate relative pricing. Please note that we have given Lea and Sandeman’s price for single bottles but they offer much keener prices to those prepared to pay for a total of 12 assorted bottles.

Many other merchants without a retail outlet, Vine Trail for instance, insist on orders of at least 12 assorted bottles – and of course the cost of delivery varies from merchant to merchant.

See wine-searcher.com for more stockists, both in the UK and elsewhere. All wines are 12 or 12.5%.
