Happy Wine Wednesday, Winos! It’s been a while since we’ve posted because we’ve been really busy promoting Dan’s Rosé Soirée.

Anyways, on Friday I (Amanda) had the most amazing wine experience. Yes, those do happen from time to time! Charlotte aka @Madampalate invited me to a wine tasting/meet the wine maker event at Pure Liquid. It’s in the One World Trade Shopping Center in the financial district.

Josh Donaghay-Spire is the chief wine maker at Chapel Down located in Kent. A group of us met with him and we were introduced to 3 of his sparkling wines. Prior to this meeting, I have never tried any wines from the UK 🇬🇧. I went into this meeting with an open mind and really didn’t know what to expect! I found the timing of this event perfect as the Royal wedding was on Saturday. Wouldn’t you know, they served English Sparkling there ! 👏🏻

I brought home a bottle of their classic non-vintage brut. Chapel down practices hand harvesting. The fruit undergoes cool fermentation followed by full malolactic fermentation. The wine then matures on its fine lees in tank for six months. Once bottled, the wine is then aged on its lees for 9 – 24 months.

The non-vintage Brut is a Pinot Noir dominated blend. There is a clarity and elegance to this sparkling wine that is captivating! I found myself quickly wanting another glass. There are aromas of red apple, lemongrass and freshly baked bread. I also noted hints of strawberry and apple on the palate and fine persistent bubbles.

This sparkling wine retails $48-50. When compared with champagnes and other sparkling in the same price range the quality is unmatched. I found this wine to be on par, if not better than its competitors.

Hopefully, I have another opportunity to try Chapel Down Wines again! I certainly, won’t forget this one! This is their website;

Cooler Kangaroo

Summertime ☀️ is quickly approaching and CoolerKangaroo has us covered with their stylish and functional wine cooler bags. This patented design was easy to use, we just filled the bag up with 1/3 of ice and popped in our favorite bottle of rosé. Good to go to the beach, a pool party, BBQ, you name it! Unlike a typical pre-frozen sleeve, the CoolerKangaroo won’t defrost. It requires no prep work, simply add ice, and a bit of water as well if you choose, and your wine will chill in minutes.

For the impatient ones out there, Cooler Kangaroo recommends adding a bit of salt with the ice and water if you want to go the extra mile and shoot for a rapid chill! ❄️❄️❄️

Not only is the CoolerKangaroo convenient for outdoor use but overall everyday functionality. It’s lightweight and easy to store for those seeking to save space. This would make an adorable gift for your fellow wine lover. You can find these bags sold on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Champagne-Reusable-Accessory-Waterproof/dp/B079WDQZXQ or directly here https://www.coolerkangaroo.com/new-products

AND For a limited time, starting tomorrow 4/12 – 4/15 CoolerKangaroo will be offering FREE SHIPPING on Amazon 😎

Scavi and Ray Ice Prestige Sparkling

Scavi and Ray Ice Prestige Sparkling

We recently collaborated with Martha Stewart Wine Club and they sent us two beautiful bottles of Scavi and Ray Spumante. Scavi & Ray Ice Prestige Spumante is a brand new sparkling wine that has been eloquently crafted and designed for ice-cold enjoyment on the rocks!

Tasting notes: lemony straw colored with medium-fine bubbles. On the nose there are notes of pear and star fruit. The palate reveals a sweet sparkling wine that has a hint of citrus and apple. Short finish. Serve on the rocks with citrus zests or fresh mint.

Over all a nice Spumante that would be a perfect addition to any cocktail party. Scavi and Ray really hit it out of the park with the perfect entertainment drink. Serve at your next party and try out Martha Stewart Wine club as they showcase great wines such as this! Click the Martha Stewart image below to join!! They offer great deals. 👍🏼
