NV PIPER SONOMA BLANC DE BLANC BRUT, SONOMA, CA
92 points – TP! Yes, this is the same delicious bottles of Bubbles you find at your local Piggly Wiggly Market for $22! Somebody missed their remedial math classes & gave us this wine for cheap so we can offer it for the best price you will ever see! Piper Sonoma was founded in 1980 by the Marquis d’Aulan family, direct descendants of the Piper family. Recognizing Sonoma as a great growing region for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and believing in its terroir, the family's vision was to produce world-class sparkling wines in the New World, using old-world winemaking techniques.
Primarily composed of Chardonnay, with some Pinot Blanc, our Blanc de Blancs has a pale straw color, tiny bubbles and aromas of green apple, citrus and white flowers. The palate is crisp and dry with a long mouthwatering finish. This sparkling wine pairs marvelously with spring rolls, fried calamari or scallops, and makes a wonderfully refreshing addition to cocktails.
NV CONUNDRUM (CAYMUS) BRUT ROSE’, CA
ONE WOULD BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND THIS FOR UNDER $20! It all began at the dinner table. Charlie Wagner Sr. – who co-founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972 with wife Lorna and son Chuck – would mix wines to find the perfect glass to pair with his meal. No one blended wines back then, so his experiment was pretty radical. Fast forward to 1989, when Conundrum White was born, quickly taking off with its mysterious, tropical notes and amazing versatility.
Today it’s Charlie Sr.’s grandson and namesake, Charlie Wagner, who keeps Conundrum as inventive as ever.
A luminous rose gold hue with warming peach undertones, this wine opens with bright scents of strawberry, barely ripe peach, fresh wildflowers and raspberry. Entry features a pop of vibrant acidity, which evolves into a soft roundness. The taste of guava and mango add a tropical twist to the long, enticing finish.
NV BOLLICINI PROSECCO BRUT, ITALY
