A NICE touch with late
Sunday morning omelettes.

COLES Liquor is enjoying growing success with sales of Spanish boutique producer Segura Viudas' cavas (sparkling wines) that its been selling here since 2005.

And a couple of these well-priced bubblies well worth considering for the upcoming Festive Season are the Segura Viudas  Brut Reserva NV at $15 and Brut Vintage 2005 at $20.

The Brut Reserva NV is a blend of three little-known varieties here, Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo and is a favourite drink in Spain's Cataluna region where it's often enjoyed with late Sunday morning omelettes. It's also equally ideal with preserved clams, anchovies, and seafood over noodles and sprinkled with Arbequina Extra Virgin olive oil, or a warm quail salad.

The Segura Viutas Brut 2005 is a Gran Reserva blended from ten separate ferments and aged in bottle for at least 40-monhts. Enjoy it with Iberian cured, acorn fed ham, griddled fresh tuna or lighter white goat's cheeses.
a bargain buy at $11.

ONE FOR LUNCH: Bargain hunters need look little further than Logans' Apple Tree Flat 2009 Chardonnay that really does over-deliver at just $11 a bottle.

A blend of premium Mudgee and Orange (NSW) fruit, this is an enjoyable any-reason Chardonnay with enjoyable apple and citrus flavours. Match it up with summer salads or a seafood pasta.
