Shinn Estate Vineyards NV Brut Quick Sip

Shinn Estate NV Brut

This bubbly from Shinn Estate Vineyards was served at our wedding.  We were very happy when we booked with Barbara and David because they were going to release their own Method de Champagne.  This, believe it or not was very important to us because we wanted to feature all things Shinn.  They told us that they would help us with the champagne if Shinn’s was not released.  But we never had to worry about that.

On the nose, this sparkling wine had subtle floral aromas and a little citrus.

In the glass, there is a wonderful white peach flavor that I was getting.  There was great acidity.  The effervescence was light, which was nice and it went down nice and smooth.  The finish was clean and short, which made me want another glass.  This was something that I recall following our toast, people wanted a second glass, something you do not see too often.

We had this bubbly the day before our anniversary with my parents and brothers in our summer cottage compound in Baiting Hollow following a wonderful dinner at the Jamesport Manor Inn (post will follow this week).  Needless to say, everyone had a second glass and this bottle was finished in about 10 minutes.  My wife and I popped the cork on another bottle the next night for our anniversary.

This bubbly is no longer available for sale.  Shinn Estate Vineyards has a new “Ultra Brut” that is released.   I have had it, and it is good, but the NV Brut is a little special to us.  Melissa and I have to be careful; I only have 4 more bottles left!

    How long do you think this brut will hold for?

    Melissa wanted to give one away as a gift…I told her No way! Glad I did, we will not pop a cork on one of these in a while.

    Now you know where to get a bottle just in case. 🙂
