This Tuesday we try some unique tracks from the sparkling side of the wine world: these are not your usual bubbles! Featuring:
- Veuve de Vernay Blanc de Blanc, France – A sparkling made from a blend of white grapes (usually from the Bordeaux region) this light, dry white is slightly yeasty with a hint of baked apples and a bite on the finish.
- “Dr. L” Dry Sparkling Riesling, Germany – A different kind of riesling, and not just because of the bubbles, this sparkling is crisp and dry balancing fruit flavors and a citrus tartness.
- Reginato Sparkling Rosé of Malbec, Argentina – Yes, you read that right: a full-bodied malbec rosé from the Southern Hemisphere full of strawberry, rhubarb and melon flavors with a mineral finish and, of course, bubbles.
