Wine.com Info


Aaron: Dry and crisp with a mellow finish.  This sparkling was fine on its own but great with a refreshing appetizer.  I got a lot of white strawberry and green ferns on this very dry Blanc de noirs. 91 points

Teri: Aaron and I enjoyed this bottle at a wine bar in Scottsdale Arizona. I’m very glad we did because it is now one of my favorite sparklings! Easy to drink with tremendous flavor. Dry overall with flavors of peach, almond, and honey. Crisp with plenty of bubbles. 90 points

Just Peachy Sparkling

World Market, $9.99

Vivino Info


Aaron:  Not surprisingly, this smells like sugar coated peach cobbler.  Very light, very sweet.  Sadly, not a ton of bubbles.  86 points

Teri: No surprises here, it tastes like peaches and smells like peaches. A surprisingly low level of bubbles and tastes as expected: sweet and peachy (like one of those peach candy gummies). This bottle would be good for those who like dessert wine or just new to wine overall. I could also see this being a good mixer for mimosas or other fruity cocktails. 85 points

Aaron: This has a bright green nose with tree bark and apricot.  I liked this more than most other Mumm’s I’ve had because of the honey and cantaloupe flavor.  This has a wide, broad flavor to me.  90 points.

Teri: Stone fruits, apricot and apple dance on your palate. A crisp and long finish. The sparkling is dry but still carries lingering flavors. Great go-to bottle for any occasion or as a quality gift.  90 points

Aaron: This has a bright peach and grape nose while the flavor is a bit dry (but not too dry).  There’s a good amount of nuttiness on the flavor with almonds, while some subtle berries play a supporting role.  Definitely some dark tree bark.  89 points

Teri: This sparkling has a honey-melon nose and semi-sweet juicy flavors of peach, apricot, and a hint of lemon. Yum! If you like sparklings on a semi-sweet side this will be one of your favorites. 91 points
