We’re getting ready for the holidays by popping the corks on a whole lot of Sparklers. Stop by the shop Saturday and Sunday and effervesce with us.
Saturday, December 14th
Vilarnau Brut Reserva Cava $10
50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel·lo
Aged 15 months in bottle, delicious crisp apple and ripe pear flavous amongst an abundance of fine bubbles. Was $15 now $10
Townshend Brut $14
60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir
A finely balanced blend of from the best grapes of Washington State. Crafted in the traditional French Méthode Champenoise style with a minimum of 24 months spent “en Tirage”. Good local fizz.
Savian Evento Rosé $12
From Veneto, this extra-dry Spumante strikes the eye for its hues of rose petals. Its bouquet is delicate and at the same time complex, with a light hint of walnut husk. Well-balanced in acidity and sugar contents, it reveals a particularly intense, harmonious, markedly lingering flavor.
Prova Cava Brut Méthode Traditionell $13
40% Macabeo, 30% Xarel-lo, 30% Parellada
The Prova is a translucent pale yellow with foamy head effervescence. Nice composition with a quite dry profile, well-balanced and with a rather long refined taste.
Trouillard Champagne Extra Selection Brut $35
35% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay
Fine bubbles, full-bodied with a full mixture of white fruits. The flavor is dominated by notes of hazelnuts and grilled almonds. This crisp, delicate, fresh, creamy and elegant champagne, with just a touch of yeastiness, is sure to enhance any special occasion or meal. A very classic and delicate Brut.
Sunday, December 15th
Rive Della Chiesa Pinot Grigio Frizzante $10
Light and apple-driven, and clean. The flavors are like lime lollipops and orange juice, which may sound unappealing but that’s not the case.
Peneca Rebula $13
This Slovenian sparkling wine is made from 100% Ribolla Gialla in the Charmat method. It has aromas of green apple, brioche, toast and hazelnut. In the mouth, the bubbles are pleasant and prepare your palate for flavors of apple, hazelnut and toasted almond.
