Sparkling Wine Thursday Tasting!

Welcome Back! It’s that time again my wine lovers!! It’s Wine Thursday Tasting!! Sorry for the delay, but hey, your girl’s gotta work. πŸ™‚ 
This week’s lovely wine selection is the Cruse Brut Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Wine. Yes, this bubbly is from France! Bubbly from the motherland. And why No, I have not gone all high and mighty on you, because this is an excellent French bubbly for an awesome price!

Cruse Brut 
Blanc De Blancs
Sparkling Wine

“This crisp, fruit-driven sparkler is filled with fresh notes of apple and peach, touched with just a hint of toast. An amazing value that is sure to please your guests, this delight is also great for mimosas and bellinis.”

A wonderfully clear, pale golden wine with a tremendous amount of fine, tiny bubbles, (it’s really fun to see all the bubbly), this wine lures you in with the abundant aromas of honeysuckle, and light, fluffy bread and butter. (Now, I know that sounds weird, but the bread and butter taste is actually quite common in sparkling wine. Why you wonder?? Because this is a natural occurring aroma that happens as the bubbles are made. The ingredient responsible for making the bubbles?

Yeast. Yeast is a must in wine making… it’s what actually is responsible for converting juice into wine… and for sparkling wine, the yeast actually sits in the bottle, or tank, with the juice. While it sits in with the wine, the more bread and butter taste it produces, and usually, the more carbonation it builds inside the container. Though each type of sparkling wine is made in a different method (which will be explained in my sparkling wine page), this is usually the foundation for all sparkling wine. A little wine trivia for you, and maybe your answer to what is that bubbly taste? ) Leaving your nose and making your mouth water, you can literally taste the peach, apricots, and crisp apple as this bubbly finishes off, and leaves you begging for more from this under $10 wine!
 Enjoy with some chilled seafood, light salads, parmesan cheese, or, if it’s not quite sweet enough for you, as a mimosa, and you will not be disappointed. Me, I happened to have it with chilled lobster (it was on sale), and parmesan cheese, and my mouth could not stop smiling. πŸ™‚ 

So put a bottle in the fridge, get comfy, and cool off with a glass while enjoying the sunset. 

Happy Thursday Everyone! Cheers! 

Average Price: $6.99 – But, I found mine for $5.99 at Total Wine in Dallas, where it is constantly stocked! (And if you happen to stop by, say hi to my friend Joseph, who is always happy to help any wine lover! )

HumpDay Wine Tasting!

Hi Everyone!! It’s WEDNESDAY!!! And you all know what that means, Wine Tasting Day!! πŸ™‚ This week’s selected wine is the Organic, Un-Oaked Natura Chardonnay, from an area well known for Chardonnay, Casablanca Valley, located in Chile. 
Made with Organically Grown Grapes 
From Valle De Casablanca in Chile.
“Produced by Emiliana Vineyards from 100% organically grown grapes. Organic Viticulture brings forth the true character of the vineyard terroir and allows the grapes to express themselves fully. As a result, distinctive flavors emerge, making a remarkably unique and complex wine.” 
A medium bodied wine, this lightly golden colored beauty is wonderfully balanced and utterly fabulous! Grown in the pure and un-altered soils of Casablanca Valley, this wine does speak for its name, as the free, natural and wonderful aromas of pineapples, apples, lemon and slight grapefruit, come forth with a slight acidity, but leaves your mouth feeling wonderfully full and refreshed with it’s smooth finish.  This is absolutely one of the best wines that I have tasted, and all for under $10! So pick up a bottle, and enjoy a glass with some light pasta or fish, (personally, I like it with some bread and Parm cheese, and some citrus fruit), while enjoying the sunset from your patio! 
Happy HumpDay! Cheers! 
Average Price: $8.99 – However, I found mine on sale at Sprouts at 2/$10!
