What I’m Drinking Friday…

by farrah on January 6, 2012 · 8 comments

So I’m REALLY excited to tell you what I’m drinking now. Half because it’s good, cheap and accessible- and half because it’s helping to fulfill one (actually the main one ) of my New Year’s resolutions. Yes! My resolution this year was to drink more sparking wine. Why? Well, life is too short and sparkling wine is fun. It’s tasty and festive. And some days I just need to have something peppy and bubbly and fun at the end of the ninth level of the inferno.

No, I’m kidding. My life is really not all that bad *cough*. But I digress. The sparkling wine I am so happy to share with you is from none other than Yellow Tail. You know- that brand with the Aboriginal design on the label and that you’ve seen at the grocery store for years? It’s pretty inexpensive? THAT one. Well, not sure how long it’s been out but they have two versions of ‘Bubbles’ that pretty much pop my cork.

First, is their Sparkling White.  Loved it. It was a little bit sweet- with just enough dry. It didn’t go overboard  and overpower me…or make me want to stop at just one glass (good/bad I guess). But it was GOOD. It seems every holiday I buy some kind of bubbly something or other and it’s just not that good.  I set high expectations and am let down in the end. I might have a glass and then save the rest for a mimosa- but not this stuff. My husband and I split the bottle over Christmas dinner and boy was I disappointed that I didn’t have another one in the fridge.

Next up is their Sparkling Rose. It claims to have the flavors of berry- but I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t really get that. Other than the slight pink color- it tasted pretty much the same to me as the Sparking White. But…considering that I liked the white so much I didn’t mind at all. We had a bottle of this and the white on New Year’s. Very fun, very good.

The last thing about the Yellow Tail Bubbles line that I thought was fantastic- is this ‘Zork’. Basically it’s the cap that you can use to ‘reseal’ the bottle- keeping in as many of those precious bubbles as possible.

I picked up the Yellow Tail Bubbles at my local Publix for around $9.00 each, but they have a $3.00 off 2 bottles promo tag right now. If you like sparkling wine or are just thinking about including it into your daily routine- ah, erm, rotation- I highly suggest you pick up a bottle and try it yourself. I promise it will give you warm fuzzies in your tummy.

 

Cheers!

This is not a compensated review. I choose my own beverages and pay for them myself .

It’s like you read my mind. I was looking for a good sparkling wine for New Year’s Eve. We went with some other type of champagne, however I’ll be trying the Yellowtail White now. We are taking a party bus out to the wineries tomorrow, my friend’s bachelorette party. It might be perfect for the ride.
