KrimSekt White Semi-Sweet Sparkling

Price: $19.95
Made in: Crimea, Ukraine
By: Artemovsk Winery

A Sparkling from Ukraine this Sunday. OK. This semi-sweet bubbly is made from Riesling, Pinot, Chardonnay and Aligote grapes grown in the Crimean peninsula. First off, the cork was extremely hard to pop. Hard to turn, no pressure pushing the cork up and out. Then it broke halfway. Not a good start. Yeasty nose and then pretty sweet grape notes. The taste starts off very sweet, but not too syrupy, so goes into a decent finish. Mild yeast lingers on the tongue. Not sure all those grapes work well together, as something in the middle seems a bit off. Still, not a bad sweeter Sparkling, but not worth the price.
