Hungary continues to turn out some cheap, yet well-made, wines that deserve our attention. This SB shows tropical fruits, gooseberry and melon on the nose. Those ripe fruits are lifted by racy acidity and clean flavours through the finish. Serve with summer salads and white fish.
Spanish brandy from the Jerez region. Pale bronze. True to its origin, it smells remarkably like fino sherry, but also wood, light molasses and coffee. In the mouth one finds smoky caramel, a hint of sweet liquorice and a slight alcohol burn.
Perfumed tropical flowers and yellow tropical fruit scents lead the way for ripe tropical and honeyed citrus fruit, delivered in a creamy texture with refreshing acidity and lingering tropical fruit on the finish.
This is a great example of some stunning bubbles made in Nova Scotia. Pronounced brioche and yeasty notes with lemon and an elegant mousse. Rich yet savoury with integrated dosage. Bring on the gougères!
