I know the bubbles/bubbly wine writing challenge is past, but I wanted to post this anyway. First, though, many congratulations to Traveling Wine Chick for coming out on top in the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge #27! Her entry is quite an enjoyable piece. If you haven’t read it, I recommend it. Click HERE to view. This post won’t be as fullsome or as well phrased, but it will be about bubbles nonetheless.
Winemaker: It’s A Headsnapper
Appellation: Prosecco DOC, Italy
Notes: At 11% alcohol, this light straw-colored bubbly was a tad sweet. It had good acidity, a light heft on the palate, and a bouquet of nectarine with floral notes and a hint of cream. At least that’s what I smelled. I can only share with you what my nose told me. Flavors were gentle as was the effervescence. It seemed like a light citrusade to my taste buds – a mix of citrus. It was pleasant, and I actually thought the tart flavors balanced the sweetness pretty well. It’s simple. It’s easy to drink.
