  • Sokol Blosser Evolution Sparkling NV

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly nutty, honeyed aromas of green apple and peach. Fresh and lively palate with zesty citrus notes of tangerine, grapefruit and lemon with some stone fruit coming through as well, soft mousse and bright acidity make for a fun, easy drinking selection Read More

  • Bay Bridge Vineyards Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    Clear, crisp sweet taste. Nearly dessert wine sweetness in my opinion. Goes down fairly smoothly, but does have some other attribute that I don't know the name for. It's not as sharp as a bite, but almost adds a texture to the flavor. Worth buying again. Read More

It's something I did a few times during my period of busy London business visits at the end of the '80s through early last decade. The first time I sweated a bit bec... Read More

  • Martin & Weyrich Moscato Allegro 2006: A sweet sparkling wine with delicious undertones of apricot and honey. I loved the way the tantalising bubbles played on my tastebuds. Can be enjoyed by itself or with a fruit tart or even a creamy risotto, enjoy!
