The 2012 Pink Bub from Haywire Winery is perfect to share with your special someone. It is made in the traditional method with 51% Pinot Noir and 49% Chardonnay. A red-wine dosage is added to help create its lively pink.
The Pink Bub is crisp and refreshing, with bright raspberries, Granny Smith apples, and light citrus notes on the palate; on the nose, aromas of yeast, cherry candy, and just a hint of mint work with a subtle earthiness. The bubbles create a mousse that is creamy and strong, but not overly aggressive.
And yes, winemaker Michael Bartier has chosen a crown cap for the top, which just makes it easier for you to enjoy this sparkling wine--anytime and anywhere.
Serve it: Drink this sparkling wine with salty, spicy snacks--from caviar, smoked salmon, and oysters, to spiced nuts, buttery popcorn, and tortilla chips--Asian-inspired fare, or casual "quick" meals from the deli or drive-through. It will fancy-up and refresh almost anything you choose.
Buy it: Buy a bottle of these bubbles for $25 at select BC VQA or private retail stores, select restaurants, or online.
Overall: To sum it up, I'd have to say this wine is a little "I love you" in a glass. xoxo
À Votre Santé!
