Oyster Bay Cuvée Rosé

Marlborough, New Zealand

This very light salmon coloured sparkling has aromas of ripe rhubarb, raspberry, pink grapefruit and slight herbaceous notes. Small bubbles on the palate with red apple, grapefruit and floral flavours. Pair with salmon and shellfish.

Lolou

Vignoble Côte de Vaudreuil Lolou 2012

Monteregie, Quebec, Canada
924 days ago

Jane scored this wine: 88/100

A blend of cool climate grapes that might not be so well known, Sabrevois and Frontenac Gris. This traditional method sparkling is a nice cherry colour, darker than most rose sparkling wines. Aromas of strawberry, rhubarb, raspberry and cranberry. The palate has a more gamy flavour mixed with cranberry. High acidity and medium bodied. Sparkling doesn't have to be for special occasions. Pair this with summer BBQ.

Tantalus Vineyards Blanc De Noir 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia BC V.Q.A., Canada
924 days ago

Jane scored this wine: 89/100

This traditional method Blanc de Noir smells like apple pie. Red apple, cinnamon mixed with some herbaceous notes are dominant. This fizzy and foamy mouthfeel leaves your palate with flavours of lemon, green apple, pink grapefruit and blackberry. Pair with shellfish appetizers or pasta.

Tantalus Vineyards Old Vines Riesling Brut 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia BC V.Q.A., Canada

Jane scored this wine: 87/100

Aromas of juicy red apple, pink grapefruit, lime, apricot, honey and hints of white floral. Flavours of apple, lime, pink grapefruit. This zippy brut is great on its own or paired with soft cheeses, strawberries and anything brunch related. Think fruit crepes or even eggs benedict.

Matawhero Chardonnay 2014

Gisborne, North Island, New Zealand
924 days ago

Jane scored this wine: 89/100

This wine is 100 per cent Chardonnay grapes and has gone through malolatic fermentation. Melon, butterscotch, pink grapefruit, and red apple aromas. Butterscotch and vanilla flavours lead to the creaminess of this wine. Finish of lemon and butterscotch. Pair with creamy chicken dishes or even turkey dinner.

Memorable Wine

Domaine Carneros by Taittinger - Brut -- I tasted this sparkling while sitting on the terrace of the vineyard with my dear friend from Australia.
