Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: an Australian sparkling wine that could pass for champagne


Published:

This is a well-made sparkler that could fool some into believing it’s champagne. It has a pale straw colour with an active mousse and small bubbles. Boasting an apple and citrus nose, it is medium-bodied with apple and green pineapple flavours. Good length.

Food match: aperitif; grilled fish

 

Wolf Blass Yellow Label Sparkling Brut, Australia, $17.95. LCBO #649996
