Astrolabe Wines Taihoa Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: From the Marlborough, South Island wine region, Astrolabe Wines Taihoa Vineyard 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is a vegan-friendly SB produced from sustainably grown grapes. So fresh and pure of fruit, intense with layers of ripe tropical fruit, sliced pear, fine herbs, finishing on a briny mineral note, leesy and long on the palate. So well made and delicious. Chill and enjoy on its own or with grilled seafood dishes. Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: veal cutlets, grilled chicken breasts, pan-fried panfish.

Sparkling Wine

Blue Mountain Gold Label Brut Sparkling Wine, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia BC V.Q.A., Canada: This crisp and refreshing sparkling wine is a blend of about 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and a splash of Pinot Gris grapes, and is designated BC VQA. It spent two years resting on its lees to give it richness and creaminess that challenges the best of N.V. Champagnes. A zesty, refreshing bubbly with vibrant green apple notes. Clean finish. Great price. It offers low alcohol but lots of taste and a persistent mousse. Pair with oysters and mussels. Sparkling Wine food pairings: grilled salmon, lobster thermidore, pulled pork sammies, tacos.. 206326 13% XD 750 mL $34.95 Score: 93/100. June 2022. Top Rated Sparkling Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
