Sweet Sparkling for the Christmas!

Pink by Yellowglen Australia Sparkling Wine, 11% Alc. Vol. ($21.95)
Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell' Amore Moscato, 6.5% Alc. Vol.

For someone inexperience with wine, Nick brought these bottles thinking they made nice red wines for us. But they aren't, both are sparkling whites ;)

Pink has a light pinkish hue with subtle fruity character, aromatic and bubbly. Blind-folded, we would have thought a bubbling Chardonnay was served. Without a doubt, Pink is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes!

The Italian Petalo Il Vino dell' Amore, "Wine of Love" is distinctly perfumed with scent of roses! The first sip of the Moscato is impressively good - i thought it would be a winner with the ladies, but i couldn't take the second glass without feeling i'm drinking a cologne; went back to the Pink.
