When the sun shines in Ireland we tend to adopt an optimistic outlook and think that it's going to last forever! It never does of course but better the 'glass half full' than being a killjoy. This weekend I'm going to indulge in one of lifes greatest pleasures and pour some sparkling in the sunshine.
What to buy? Well, there's quite a range of good value sparklers to choose from these days. With food I tend to buy lean styles to add flavour and texture but for sunshine sipping I'll be happy with a degree of extra fruit such as found in the really excellent Griffith Park Sparkling Rose from Australia.
Both the White and Rose Griffith Park Sparkling wines are new to Ireland, exclusive to SuperValu/Centra and has a winemaker, Islay Kennedy, whose grandparents hail from Tipperary.

a glass of well chilled sparkling to hand.
Looks like this weekend will be in Griffith Park as well!
