*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from the PR firm for the brand.
The day before New Year’s Eve. You haven’t bought the bubbly for midnight yet. What shall you get? Thankfully, I’ve got several to recommend in just a few short hours here at different price points. For a budget friendly, domestic sparkler, we tried the Mumm Napa Prestige Brut. From as low as $15, this bubbly will not bust the bank and is sure to please on New Year’s Eve (or whenever toasting with some sparkling catches your fancy.)
Four takeaways from this wine:
1.) It’s not the most complex bubbly, but delivers well for the price point, and offers nice, small bubbles to tickle your tongue.
2.) I enjoyed the tropical notes that reined in the lemon the dominated both the nose and the palate.
3.) Especially good for the price point if you are having a crowd and don’t want to break the bank on multiple bottles.
4.) The leftovers made excellent mimosas.
On the nose I got lemon, lots of lemon, apple, tropical notes, and slight toast. Did I mention the lemon? In the mouth I found pineapple, other tropical fruits, lemon, apple, and just the slightest hint of sweet pear.
