Day 116-Sovietskoe Shapanske made in Lithunia for $6.99 at Binnys
I was looking for some sparkling wine for my mostly red wine cellar currently and it was labeled a semi-sweet sparkling wine at the right price. This wine is made in a champagne-style with tons of bubbles and very crisp with flavors and aromas of bread. This wine is a combination of grape varieties and was a hit with Troy's parents. They said it was the best $7 wine they ever had, and I agree for the value this is a great mimosa drink and a great barbeque wine. I would almost buy this wine by the case as a cheap bubbly for a party. This sprakler is clean and refreshing, without the typical dryness of a champagne.
