Strong lemon-lime and hazelnut brioche and acorn nose, with a powdery dried magnolia-pineapple dusting. Silky smooth texturally, and lovely with a mineral feel, a citrus zing of tangerine pith and baked lemon tart and depth of capers and chamomile. Exquisite in unexpected ways. .

Pic #1. 2007 Schramsberg ‘J. Schram’ California. Golden amber hue, aromas of yellow apple, ripe pear, butterscotch, and toffee, with soft bubbles on the palate. Paired with quail egg, smoked panna cotta hay, and osetra caviar. And a b.l.t. bite of goodness seasoned with bourbon and black garlic. #schramsberg #sparklingwine #californiasparkling #méthodechampenoise — 4 years ago
Funky bunch bordering on sulfur dissipated to well water, then to a buttery jasmine with notes of grapefruit zest and desert nettle. Ripe, gelatinous citrus lineup of grapefruit, lime, lemon, persimmon and yeast-wheat bread with a dry, gingery,substantial finish. #Giorgi #bubbles #topzero #GiorgiTopZero #sparklingwine #OltrepoPavese #italianwines #Italian #wine #northernitalianwines — 5 years ago
Baked lemon, fresh lime, lemon tort, yeasty tartar biscuit, dried pineapple, tangerine peel. Tangerine and apricot on entry, full-flavored, and lively, lime zest, creamy lemon curd, with a lemongrass edge. #sturgeonmoon #caviar #bubbles #casparkling #belatednatlcaviarday #sparklingwine #bubblesandroe #osetra — 3 years ago
Finest mousse. Lightest peach, lemon pith, ripe ginkgo, lime, persimmon, orchid concentrate and tangerine-thyme aromatically. Creamy mousse plays chalky with tangerine and lemon oil across the tongue seductively. Lime zest, lychee, apricot and a pure single drop of ripe lemon juice connects the creamy finish in a lovely way. Really an amazing wine with the complex nuances of a lively tête-à-tête with a stunningly beautiful lady. #CadelBosco #bubbles #franciacorta #Brut #Chardonnay #sparklingwine — 5 years ago
Picked up for Christmas dinner at the local QFC. Treveri is a Columbia Valley producer that specializes in 100% varietal sparkling wines. This bottle is a Gewürztraminer made in the traditional méthode champenoise. This method calls for a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The Gewürztraminer grape is not typically known for sparkling wines as it’s quite sweet, however, that sweetness can fit a demi-sec quite nicely. Demi-sec, or “half-dry”, denotes a semi-sweet wine with sugars typically between 32-50 grams/liter (g/l) of residual sugars. In contrast, most dry table wines are <10 g/l. The sweetness of the sparkling wine worked great with the holiday fare. ~$17 | #treveri #gewürtztraminer #sparklingwine
On the eyes: Clear, pale yellow, tiny fine bubbles, starbright, med stain, med tears, no floc.
On the nose: Ripe lychee, tropical floral notes, with lingering spicy herbaceousness. Med alcohol.
On the tongue: Med- tannin, med acid, med alcohol, med body. Lychee, passion fruit, rose petal, finishing clean. Nice typical Gewürztraminer with fine effervescent bubbles - be warned, a bit sweet. — 6 years ago
Rosé bubbles anyone?
Thank you very much Taltarni for sending us a sip of your 2013 new release Cuvée Rosé to taste. It was the perfect after work tipple - in fact I didn’t even take the time to change out of my work shirt, I was that eager to get stuck in!!
This Rosé sparkler is made from Pinot Noir (52%), Chardonnay (46%) and the remainder Pinot Meunier from a mix of regions in VIC, SA and TAS.
It sells for $26 however if you’re in the Taltarni Cellar Key Club you can get it for $20.80 ‼️ Plus if you join this season you get a free Taltarni magnum with your first delivery 😱
We found it a pale peachy salmon colour in the glass. On the nose, for me, I thought it smelt like shortbread, red berries and there’s a hint of lemongrass citrus too. In the mouth it’s super smooth and gluggable with flavours of peach, raspberry, lemon and orange coming through for me. Delish!
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!

Interesting airy lemon and neutral merengue aromas with powdered pineapple, and dried lime, clementine pith and light toast. Lime zest and delicate lemon on the palate, chalky mineral character, showing underripe apricot, green strawberry, white carnation petal, lemongrass and lime zest. Incredible wine at an unbelievable price. #Bulliat #crémantdebourgogne #AvilleMorgon #brutnature #brut #bubbles #bubblesonabudget #sparklingwine #bubblesforlife #bubblesalldamnday #bubbles4thepeople #bubblesareagirlsbestfriend — 5 years ago

Light salmon colour. Dried red fruits, orange zest, toasted brioche on a racy, mineral-laced finish. Nice creaminess through the end. #wine #englishwine #sommelier #sommelierlife #sommlife #wineporn #winestagram #sparklingwine #winewinewine #winelover — 6 years ago
