Apericena Vino Da Tavola Blanco NV

IMG_0009.jpg

Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $13


Aaron:  This was a great bottle, especially for the price.  If you want a nice easy going white that is flexible but still enjoyable, go to lot 18 and get this one.  The nose was banana-walnut bread with cantaloupe and sparkling vinegar on the flavor.  There was also white cherries and butter in the background of this full white.  91 points

Teri: I feel the bottle would pair well with fresh salads and creamy chicken. It has a sweet floral nose and smooth easy taste of cantaloupe, bell pepper, citrus and a hint of oak on the finish. Crisp and clean. Nothing stands out which is extraordinary, but it is enjoyable. 87 points

Abalone NV Espumante

Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $16


Aaron:  This is a great bottle for those looking for something sweet; maybe not the best for experienced wine drinkers.  There’s lots of bright green apple on the nose with some Himalayan rock salt.  The flavor was super sweet, like liquid candy and featured syrupy honey.  88 points

Teri: This sparkling doesn’t have much smell on the nose but an explosion of honey and apricot on the flavor that lingers in your mouth. Good amount of bubbles and a semi-sweet (not dry) flavor. This bottle is a great choice for those who like sweeter wines or would be a great choice with juice for mimosas. 89 points 

 

Karma Lion NV Vinho Espumante

Lot 18, $18.49


Aaron: This isn’t super complex, but it tastes pretty good.  Honey and melon on the nose, followed by a sweet, syrupy flavor.  There is more honey, plus brown sugar on the palate with some peach, making this super easy drinking.  90 points

Teri: Sweet peach and red apple with an almost ‘sticky’ mouth feel. This sparkling wine is good but on the sweeter side. Not too complex. Fruity. 89 points.

Aaron: Crisp apple and seawater nose.  Lots of fruity pears and red apple.  Not super harsh and doesn’t remind me of a traditional brut.  Pretty tasty and full.  90 points

Teri: Light smell with flavors of pear and peach on the wine. Balanced bubbled and flavor. I enjoy the crispness of the sparkling wine plus the beautiful flavor. This bottle is not only beautiful but also delicious. Great gift or bring to a festive party!  90 points

Pop Dust Prosecco

Lot 18, $16


Aaron: This is pretty good.  Light, green apple on the nose.  Mild flavor with lots of apricot and pear as well as some saltine crackers.  89 points

Teri: Light nose, but beautiful and sturdy flavors of apple, lemon, walnut and a hint of vanilla. Almost too many bubbles, but that was ok with me. The flavor lingers after you swallow and leaves you wanting more. 91 points
