Let me start by stating that because of this wine I started a new category; Amazing Buy. Why not just put it in Best Buys? The price range for Best Buys is broad, and goes up to $25. Amazing price are those that are $12 and under. So why is this Amazing Buy? It has some light characteristics of Champagne or higher end Sparkling Wines, but for a fraction of the cost, and most importantly, it taste good. The wine was fermented in a bottle for a year and shows some complexity, which is unusual at this price.
Straw in colour with a medium intensity on the nose and good amount of mousse. The nose shows pear, peach, some yeast, apples and lemon. The taste is dry but refreshing with good acidity, medium length and medium body. The sparkling is easy to drink on its own or pair it with a cheese omelet, or French fries. If you ever wanted to take a bath in Champagne but couldn’t afford the amount of Champagne to use, try this one as it’s only $11.95.

This was VERY good and I was surprised. Nice mousse, small bubbles and crisp enough to keep me drinking it.
Hungary NEVER tasted so good.

I will start by admitting I only bought this bottle because it was the cheapest bottle of bubbles in the LCBO. Now that is out of the way, this is a surprisingly decent sparkling. It's very dry, with a bit of a sour, green apply taste. The bubbles are very prominent, but not overwhelming, but it exceeds all expectations and then some for $12 bubbles.
