Having an Easter brunch? Wondering what wines to serve? Pairing wines with eggs and egg based dishes presents a challenge. Reds don't work at all. Oak-ey, buttery chardonnay not so much. Citrusy sauvignon blanc, maybe. What's a wine lover to do?
Drink bubbles with brunch! Those fizzy wines from all over the world are the perfect complement to a delicious brunch on a beautiful spring day. Sparkling wines, wines with bubbles, range from bone dry to quite sweet to make everyone happy.
The Frog recommends:
Freixenet Cava from Spain. This has a yeasty but fresh apple aroma. It feels clean, with lemon-lime and kiwi flavors that lead to a fresh finish. If you like it sweet, try the Extra Dry. If you like it dry, enjoy the Brut. Just 10.99 this week saving you two bucks.
Martini & Rossi Asti from Italy. The label doesn't say Asti Spumante any more, but it's the same sweet bubbly stuff you love. $12.99 this week at the Frog.
Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc from Napa Valley. This is a wonderful traditional style dry wine made from chardonnay grapes. With its vibrant, fruitful and crisp nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years, even decades following its initial release. Enjoy some of the world's best for $30.99 a bottle.
