Thomson & Scott are already pretty famous for their Skinny Champagne. I follow them on Twitter, and had had previous conversations with Amanda about the imminent launch of Skinny Prosecco a while back. When I saw it had been launched I could not wait to try it! So here it is, I have the bottle in front of me and my glass in hand.

So what does it taste like?
Well it smells delicious, it has that fruity crisp aroma upon opening that smells like a really good quality standard (non Skinny) Prosecco. The colour is a lovely pale golden straw shade, and the bubbles look very inviting. The first sip is quite unusual, it's much drier than I expected, but it really does taste good. I didn't really know what this was going to be like, but I have to say I am impressed. There is a flavour of apple, and it does have a delicate sweetness in the palate, but not overpowering like some Prosecco. My second glass went with some light nibbles, and it goes very well with food too. Overall I like this, and I would drink it again, it is a lot drier than many readily available supermarket Prosecco, but if you find some of them too sweet, this could be the drink for you.
Where can I buy it?
