We all seem to be rushing around these last few days before Christmas and sometimes it’s hard to come up with an easy to find, inexpensive sparkling wine that will please your holiday crowd. Cupcake Vineyards NV Prosecco is a great solve for your holiday sparkler dilemma. It is very easy to find (World Market and Whole Foods quickly come to mind), priced right (I have found it for around $8), and is incredibly tasty.
Cupcake Vineyards NV Prosecco is made from 100% Glera grapes from Prosecco, Italy. It has 11.2% alcohol and retails for $13.99 although it can easily be found for around $8-10. For more information see www.cupcakevineyard.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
Cupcake Vineyards NV Prosecco pours a pale, bubbly gold in the glass. The nose has aromas of pear, peach, and sweet melon. The palate tastes of lemon and lime with hints of peach and apple and there are lingering floral notes in the finish. This sparkler is slightly sweet but not overpowering. It is a light and fun sparkling wine perfect for your holiday festivities.
My Wine Rating- B/B+
Food Pairing Suggestions- This Prosecco pairs well with deviled eggs, melon wrapped in prosciutto, and candy canes.
