Yes this is a picture of an empty bottle 😉
What can I say, I enjoy the wine and then I think about blogging about. If you’ve read this blog for awhile then you’ll know that I don’t leave scathing reviews about wines, instead I opt to share with you the wines I really enjoy whether they are samples or not.
If I don’t enjoy a wine, that’s my personal opinion and it’s doing no good for anyone if I then moan about it here. I’d just rather not post anything.
This bottle of bubbles I bought for about $20. It’s a local tipple from here in the Bellarine Peninsula. Introducing the Scotchman’s Hill 2019 Pinot Noir Chardonnay Sparkling Wine from their Swan Bay range.
The Swan Bay range is fun and informal. It’s for everyday drinking around the bbq, catching up with friends and is deliciously casual.
We tried another Victorian bubbles at the same time which was also around the $20 mark and this Swan Bay sparkling was more suited to my palate.
In the glass it’s a pale yellow peachy colour. Soft strawberries, raspberries, red liquorice, stonefruits and baking spice notes rise from the glass. In the mouth it has a super soft mousse (mouthfeel) with strawberry and cream notes and a lick of grapefruit peel.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
