Any other parents out there celebrate their baby’s/kid’s milestones with wine?
It quickly became a tradition for Mr Spittoon and myself after Baby TC was born and last weekend we celebrated 11 months.
Seriously how is Baby TC nearly one?? Next question is what should we crack for that milestone?
Actually it’s tempting to buy a bottle of this!
Seriously, if you’re looking for an AMAZING Australian sparkling while for that next special occasion, THIS is the one.

My tasting note
We enjoyed it as an aperitif with some friends and literally everyone was raving about it. It’s a refreshing looking lemon & lime shade in the glass. Fresh Danish pastries, zesty citrus and pretty floral notes rise from the glass. And wow! On the first sip you’ll understand why this sparkling is another level (cue the ‘Level Up’ song by Ciara). It’s super smooth texture is out of this world and the finish is long and succulent. So YUM!
Thank you again Hollydene for sharing this with us!
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
