What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
Every day deserves to sparkle! We’ve hand-picked these 3 Sparkling wines and can’t wait to share them with you because they will ! Read on below for this week’s Wines of the Week.
Jacob’s Creek Moscato Rosé Sparkling – While Rosé seems so Summer’17, we like to sip pink sparkling whenever we get the chance! There is also nothing better than sabering an icy bottle of the pretty pick stuff so grab a friend and be sure to enroll in our saber class (only a few spots remain) Get ’em here!
Tasting Note: Our Moscato Rosé Sparkling delightfully showcases the sweet flavours and aromas of fresh summer fruit. Made with just a little spritz for the perfect refreshment, they are bursting with fun and vitality on the palate. Serve chilled and share with friends.
Find it for $13.95 at the LCBO here!
Creekside Backyard Bubbly, Creek Shores Vineyard – Creekside is a local hero and the wines are inspiring. We love this sparkling and are so excited to have it be featured in our Holiday Bubbly Bar event! If you don’t know, now you know. So click here to check it out
Tasting Note: Making Sauvignon Blanc fruit into sparkling wine is an interesting proposition, in that we pick our savvie on flavour rather than numbers like Brix or acidity. The growing season in 2016 seemed like one endless dry heatwave, meaning that we had some serious giddy-up to get our Backyard Block fruit off the vine in early September before it over-ripened. We chose the Charmat (tank) method of secondary fermentation to make our Backyard Bubbly 2016, as that technique allows for better preservation of the fresh fruit flavours that we cherish and strive for.
Find it for $25.00 from the winery only, here!
