Have we all been living in a joke, as this April 1st rolls around it certainly feels like it? However, we are actually living in reality. As the new month begins, and mortgage payments or rent are due, we look to toast with something affordable, yet very tasty. And, if ever there was time to toast with a bubble it is now. When thinking of affordable sparkling wine, Spain’s traditional method produced Cava is one of the best bang for your buck options you can find. Juve & Camps Brut Rose Cava ($20) is produced from 100% Pinot Noir grown in the heart of Spain’s Penedes region, and aged for at least a year on the yeasts prior to disgorgement. The aging gives the strawberry and red cherry-filled palate a rich layer of creaminess, with toasted hazelnut and brioche notes. The wine is quite lively, vibrant, and clean, ideal for pairing with grilled salmon or fresh Ahi, or simply enjoying on its own.
Juicy and fresh, from the heart of California’s Central Coast, District 7 Monterey Pinot Noir ($20) leads with ripe red berry, cherry, and violet aromas, followed by strawberry, Bing cherry, vanilla, and toasted spice. Approachable, and easy, great for any weeknight enjoyment.
Showcasing its name, Bread and Butter Chardonnay ($16) is an easy, approachable, California grown white wine perfect for weeknight pairings. Layering creamy lemon custard, creme brulee, buttery brioche, and a touch of spice, the everyday option is a solid wine to enjoy with roasted chicken, creamy pasta, or springtime salads. #Cheers
