As a quick trip to Argentina is not on the horizon, and a trip to Total Wine has to wait for another day-I opted to grab this bottle of Malbec from the small, but interesting, shelves at Aldi this morning. Listen -- when a Malbec from Argentina is offered up for $3.99, I am game to give it a sip. Swill? Perhaps, but what fun, and that label is pretty cool at the very least, right? It clearly states, Adventure, and that's not a bad thing.
Sparkling libations are my personal preference as a rule...listen, Champagne and Prosecco pair with almost everything or simply a chilled flute in the hand.
But, how many of you know anything to speak of about Cava sparkling wine? If you do, excellent, tell me.
Personally, I am just learning about Cava Sparkling Wine, mostly from Spain, and it is quite intriguing. The fermentation process is closer to the process for Champagne than Prosecco, and you can taste that difference.
On my quest to explore and learn more, I snagged this bottle at Publix for $12.99. Let the bubbling commence!
Sometimes you have an item and it just doesn’t fit into any particular space. What to do? Time to start a Junk Drawer, right?
