Jane Brook Sparkling Gold Chenin Blanc

Jane Brook Sparkling Gold Chenin Blanc

We celebrated baby TC’s 7 weeks in complete style this week! A massive thank you to Jane Brook Estate Wines in Perth’s Swan Valley for this gorgeous gift – you made this sleep deprived mum & dad very happy!!

Jane Brook’s ‘Sparkling Gold’ is made from Chenin Blanc grapes and yes it has a ton of gold leaf through it. In fact it’s Western Australian 23 carat gold flakes. It’s an absolute stunner on the eye and the palate.

It’s a super crisp and refreshing bubbles, definitely dry with plenty of zest. The perfect wine to pop for special occasion’s, that’s for sure!

Thank you again Jane Brook!

Bonking Frog Foreigner 2016 Sparkling Chenin Blanc

Bonking Frog Foreigner 2016 Sparkling Chenin Blanc

This week we celebrated our bubba being 1 week old! Naturally bubbles were in order and it’s safe to say I have been so looking forward to cracking into this Bonking Frog 2016 Sparkling made from Chenin Blanc grapes grown in the Margaret River.

A big thanks to Windfall Wine Estate for this sample. Bonking Frog is one of the wine ranges from this boutique winery in North Boyanup, Western Australia. It’s named after the noisy frogs on the property, otherly let known as the Western Banjo Frogs.

It was the perfect tipple for the occasion!

In the glass it’s a pale lemon lime colour. The nose has a gorgeous burst of citrus (lemon, orange)with sweet florals and pineapple and apple sherbet coming through for me. In the mouth it’s thirst quenching, approachable and bloody easy to consume! A fun and extremely tasty bubbles.

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!

This is my go-to sparkling wine and it pretty much has been since I touched down in Perth. For $24 it is an absolute steal and it is such a crowd-pleaser! I am always left with the task of choosing the wine for everyone and when everyone’s tastes are so diverse or I’m unsure what people drink I think 9 times out of 10 everyone will love this wine. It’s a safe option! And for that 1 who maybe doesn’t like it, well bad luck for them.. I’ll drink their glass quite happily! Continue reading
