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!
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.
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.

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 →
