Prosecco Mixed Case£37.85
A 5% discount has been applied to this fantastic trio!
When we decided to make a prosecco mixed case we spent longer than we’d like to admit in the warehouse talking about our favourite Proseccos. It was a close call but we have narrowed it down to the three we think will make any celebration, no matter how small, special. Bubbles in the Bubble anyone?
x2 One of our best selling Proseccos is the 47 Anno Domini Organic Diamond Cut Prosecco DOC Spumante. The beauty of this wine doesn’t just end at the bottle. This very soft wine offers refreshing acidity with lots fruity flavours such as apple, apricot and some banana. We don’t doubt it won’t end up on a few Instagrams along with someone quickly googling ‘Wine Bottle Craft Ideas’ and hiding the empty bottle in their bag.
x1 Last but not least is our 47 Anno Domini Prosecco DOC Spumante Extra Dry Millesamato. Nicknamed the ‘Squiggly One’ in our office, our new arrival is dry and velvety, fresh, vibrant and fruity. Simply put Millesamato means from a single vintage (at least 85% of the Glera grapes have to be from the same harvest). This is the Prosecco for the Prosecco purist. .
47 AD Prosecco Frizzante DOC NV£11.95
With so much mass produced Prosecco out there it’s hard to know what one to choose. We continue to champion and import this modern Prosecco from 47 Anno Domini. We colloquially call this ‘Blackboard’ Prosecco.
As a Frizzante it is delicately sparkling with citrus, pear and floral aromas which flow to the palate. You will notice its closure uses the traditional ‘tappo spago’, the cork closure with string; this symbolises their connection to time-honoured methods once used with sparkling wines from Veneto.
47 Anno Domini Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry D.O.C. Millesimato£12.85
In brief: Nicknamed the ‘Squiggly One’ in our office we appreciate that the market is flooded with Prosecco but we are always on the look out for small and interesting finds to import on an exclusive basis.
Appearance: A straw yellow in colour with hints of green.
Nose: Fruity green apple and white flowers.
Palate: Dry and velvety, fresh, vibrant and fruity, full-bodied, excellent acidity and long-lasting flavour.
What’s on the label: Millesamato simple means from a single vintage (at least 85% of the Glera grapes have to be from the same harvest).
Small Celebration Mixed Case£32.68
Even though we shouldn’t have favourites, its no coincidence that these three wines appear at our celebrations, no matter how big or small, time and time again. We’ve even included a 5% discount!
What ever the occasion these wines have all risen to the challenge, the ‘only drinks champagne’ friend is taken with the organic Diamond Cut Prosecco (and even asked to take the bottle home, breaking out the fairy lights?), the ‘wannabe sommelier who thinks Pinot Grigio is flavourless’ will be converted to this high altitude Le Magnolie classic, the ‘hopeless romantic’ will be asking “where art thou get this bottle of Romeo & Juliet?”
Veuve Deloynes Champagne Brut NV£22.75
S.A Les Roches Blanches was founded in 1994 by Nicolas Gueusquin, a young and dynamic entrepreneur. The négociant is based in Dizy, just outside Epernay. Today, the négociant operates in a newly built, modern winery with thermo-regulated stainless steel vats, underground chalk cellars and 40 gyropalettes.
Les Roches Blanches uses the traditional Champagne method and the wines are matured for two years in chalk cellars in Dizy.
Clean, fresh floral bouquet with a hint of hazelnut leading to a delicate yet refreshing citrus palate and a long balanced and rounded finish.
Ideal food match: canapes and smoked salmon starters.
Sparkling Red Wine Mixed Case£56.00
Here at Tilley’s Wines, we’ve long had great success with sparkling red wines.
The first sparkling red wine we imported was Fox Creek’s Vixen which remains a year-long bestseller but it does come into it’s own at Christmas. It is made from Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and we like to describe it as our Black Forest Gateau wine.
Dunleavy Sparkling Red Wine – Brut Nature 2017. Based in Bristol and using grapes from their Somerset vineyard Dunleavy produce international award-winning wines from rich loamy soils. They farm in harmony with the nature that surrounds them. Their Sparkling Red Wine – Brut Nature 2017 is the first in an innovative series of sparkling reds they plan to produce using different red varieties.
Quite different to the Vixen and Comet Tail is our lighter Italian sparkling red wine, 47 AD Marsecco, Frizzante Marzemino. We lord this up as an ultimate party wine, guaranteed to convert any non-believer.

Fox Creek, ‘Arctic Fox’ NV£16.95
Fox Creek’s Arctic Fox is perfect for those seeking an alternative to Champagne.
A blend of three white varieties reflect all that is desirable from McLaren Vale’s climate and soils. Comprising of 55% Vermentino, 23% Verdelho, 22% Sauvignon Blanc.
The Vermentino’s crisp, structural and vibrant contribution is filled out by the Verdelho’s rich, tropical mid palate and yeasty lees stirred characteristics, while the Sauvignon Blanc twist gives the aromatics a lift and provides a herbaceous edge.
So how does it taste: A crisp and refreshing mix of lemon, lime, grapefruit and white nectarine flavours leading into a soft and fleshy mid palate of honeydew, green apple and lemon sorbet. The focused acidity combined with the voluminous mouth-feel finish the wine with crispness, persistence and length.
Suitable for vegans!
Vegan Friendly Mixed Case£50.70
The reason that all wines are not vegan or even vegetarian-friendly has to do with how the wine is clarified and a process called ‘fining’. All young wines are hazy and contain tiny molecules such as proteins, tartrates, tannins and phenolics. These are all natural, and in no way harmful. Most wines, if left long enough, will self-stabilize and self-fine. However, traditionally producers have used a variety of aids called ‘fining agents’ to help the process along. Fining agents help precipitate out these haze-inducing molecules. Essentially, the fining agent acts like a magnet – attracting the molecules around it. Traditionally the most commonly used fining agents were casein (a milk protein), albumin (egg whites), gelatin (animal protein) and isinglass (fish bladder protein). These fining agents are known as processing aids. They are not additives to the wine, as they are precipitated out along with the haze molecules.
The case price of £50.7 includes a 10% discount off the RRP case price of £56.35. The selection is as follows:
Henners Brut 2014£28.50
Henners Brut is produced solely from grapes grown on Henners outstanding estate, in Herstmonceux East Sussex. They found the unique combination of warm well drained soils, southerly aspect slope coupled with low altitude. The result is perhaps the finest vineyard microclimate in the country. Henners take a non-interventionist approach in the winery, made possible by the quality of the fruit. Vine clones and varieties are fermented separately to allow a broad palette of wines for final blending. Approximately 85% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation. A proportion (10%) is fermented in aged oak barrels to add subtle character and layers to the wine.
Sourdough aromas combine with crunchy green apple fruit to provide a wonderfully welcoming nose. The palate is fine with a lively and persistent mousse. Green apple and pear fruit characters mix with a toasted brioche leesy flavour helping to provide a complex and moreish palate. Balanced acidity and a long finish make this a very classy sparkling wine.
Perfect aperitif or celebration wine.
