iNwine Wednesday: Intrigue Wines Social Bubbly
What do you get when a winemaker, an accountant, an internet entrepreneur and a healthcare advisor go into business together? Intrigue Wines is a beautiful winery in Lake Country that specializes in a range of excellent, affordable wines, including bubbles for the holiday season. And it comes in stocking size!
Intrigue’s Social Bubbly, in its whimsical bottle design that features toasts and celebratory adjectives that appropriately includes Good Health, a perfect wish to all during these trying times. A frizzante-style wine that is clean, crisp with a succulent finish, it offers aromas of baked peach cobbler, cloves, and toasty biscuit. The palate to follow reveals an array of baking spices, crisp apple, and apricot notes. A golden hue and fine bubbles makes this wine a pairing to celebrate any occasion. And the pocket-sized mini is perfect for stockings or for all of your friends with an invitation to pop them together during a social virtual visit.
Social Bubbly is a blend 31.2% Pinot Gris, 23.9% Pinot Blanc, 20.5% Gewurztraminer, 11.9% Kerner, 8.4% Chardonnay, 4.2% Ehrenfelser
I love the suggested food pairings on their website: crab cakes, phyllo baked figs with goat cheese, apple pie with ice cream. But honestly, a glass of bubbles pairs well with anything.
The wine shop is open and offers many other gift ideas.
Cheers to your health and to a safer 2021!
