I’m a bubbles girl, there’s no doubt about that.
Last weekend Mr Spittoon and I went for brunch at the Wa-De-Lock Cellar Door Cafe in Stratford. The cafe stocks a number of local wines and beers which you can buy to take away. I spotted this Wild Dog 2011 Sparkling from West Gippsland for $30 and thought it’d be rude not to buy a bottle to try 😉
I had a good read of the back label on this bottle which said the vineyard (just south of Warragul) was established in 1982 and they have 11 different grape varieties in their vineyard! I did a bit of searching online about this but couldn’t find any further info, I’m intrigued. I’ll keep researching I think, but in the mean time here’s what I thought of this sparkling wine made from Pinot & Chardonnay…
In the glass it’s a eye-catching pale gold shade with biscuits, baking spice and citrus notes rising from the glass. In the mouth it’s smooth and refreshing with lovely flavours of pears mixed with some tropical fruits, a hint of nuts and crisp citrus.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine
