Vida Organica Sparkling Chardonnay – from the wine virgin

Vida Organica Sparkling Chardonnay was the very first wine I reviewed at my first tasting that I attended when I became an intern. I looked back at my blog posting and it’s amazing to see how far I’ve come. I was able to pick out much more flavors this time.

There were bright flavors of pear, apple, and a bit of honey in the smell. The taste was similar, but a bit muted by the carbonation. It was very light and went very nicely with cheese, which was expected with a sparkling wine. The taste was yeasty as most sparkling wines tend to be with me; however, it was still fruit-driven. It definitely smelled more like a chardonnay than it tasted. But overall, it was much more enjoyable this time around.

    This Sounds like a great wine. I tried a Franciacorta Saten that was on the dry side, but very creamy and yeasty. I recommend it.
