Yellow Tail – Bubbles

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Vintage: Non-Vintage
Type: Sparkling Wine
Country: Australia

Here is a wine maker who has taken a luxury product and has made it accessible to folks who like to celebrate and enjoy bubbles on an everyday basis. The bubbles are sharper than what you would find in bottles of sparkling wine produced in North America, which is closer to what my palate prefers. This is quite a sweet sparkler (actually, very sweet) and I am still not sure which exotic fruits’ aromas lift out of the glass. This is perfect for those summer evenings when both partners had a good day at work or when you have some out-of-towners visiting you for brunch!

Summerhill – Cipes

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Vintage: Non-Vintage
Type: Sparkling Wine
Country: Canada – Okanagan Valley

This sparkling wine will always occupy a special place in my heart because this was the bottle that my mother-in-law to-be, my mother and I toasted my wedding day too. My hair was in curlers and my make-up was half-way done, but the wine made me feel fabulous on the inside.

Never feel guilty for drinking bubbly on your wedding day – it creates special moments full of joy.

Now, onto the actual review: this wine was created by New York developer, Stephen Cipes, and it has been served to American and Russian presidents during visits to Canada. With that said, you know this is a serious bubbly that adds elegance to any event. The colour is lightly golden, the bubbles are frothy yet somehow creamy. It is a surprisingly complex bubbly, which helps the drinker to appreciate its festive nature. Highly recommended as an alternative to Champagne.

Summerhill Winery 10 (by eleanor_bueza)

We had this wine to start a meal at the Summerhill Winery. I’m generally not a fan of sparking wine, especially the blush variety, but this stuff was quite good. Great for a celebration on a hot summer day. It is a bit hard to find outside of Canada though.
