Villa Maria Estate Private Bin Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Marlborough, New Zealand: This is just the third year that Villa Maria has produced this delightful, lightly sparkling wine. It's an interesting (and delicious) take on Sauvignon Blanc, for which New Zealand is famous. Tropical fruit and melon on the nose and palate. If you love moscato, try this wine. The bubbles don't dry out on the finish, yet it's refreshing. Perfect as an aperitif or companion to seafood. Drink: 2015-2017. 429969 12.50% M 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Vintage Rosé Champagne 2004, Champagne A.C., France: Supremely satisfying and lovely... just like Mom. Hint. Gorgeous notes of field strawberry and some subtle smoke on a long, refreshing finish. Mouth-watering and crisp with some orange citrus lift on the mid-palate. Some kind of wonderful. Pair with shellfish. Drink: 2015-2018. 588475 12% D 750 mL  $102.95 Score: 96/100. November 14, 2015 Top Rated Sparkling Wine. Gorgeous Gift Wine Full Review
