THEO Riesling Sekt Extra Brut
Pfalz, Germany $26.99
Unlike most purveyors of Sekt, Minges does all the work themselves; tirage, riddling, disgorging. The wine is really pure and racy— the connection to Champagne is tangible; indeed it smells like Avize – it’s streamlined and dry (a Brut felt a touch too sweet). Sometimes tasting vins claires in Champagne you could swear you’re tasting young Riesling. Sometimes Rieslings at Minges smell a little like Champagne. The two places are almost identically located latitudinally, and are about three driving hours apart. There is a thread uniting them, sometimes translucent and other times vivid— like now.

ADAMI Garbel Brut Prosecco
Treviso, Italy $15.99
'Garbel' has a very ample and generous nose, releasing notes of ripe fruit, such as pear, yellow apple, and melon. Superb balance and finesse complement crisp, refreshing aromas. Pleasantly tart and full-flavored palate, with a crisp fruitiness. Admirable fullness, balance, and length, closely mirroring the aromatics of the nose.

Western Cape, South Africa $16.99
Pale silver-pink. Aromas of raspberries, cherries and a few secondary whiffs of minerality. A lively mousse but fine in the mouth, with subtle red berry flavors enlivened by bright acids. Brisk on the palate, showing hints of oyster shell and fresh lavender. Flirtatious and fun, yet elegant and structured, it's perfect for all seasons and settings.

GRAMONA ‘La Cuvee’ Gran Reserva Brut 2013
Spain $20.99
Full and creamy on the palate. Velvet-like bubbles. Refreshing finish. The white flowers and fruit aromas come through on the palate against a backdrop of freshly baked bread. A cava with structure, which shows its personality and finesse year after year.
