My wine of choice for my mother? An elegant bottle of bubbles, inspired by the woman behind Allan Scott Family Winemakers, makes the perfect addition to a Mother’s Day lunch or sophisticated high tea this year.
“Our mother is an avid bubbles fan, it’s her favourite drink,” explains daughter Victoria, the Director of Marketing for Allan Scott Family Winemakers. ” Dad decided early on that he should probably start making some bubbles or else she’d send him broke by drinking Champagne all the time – and so he created the Cecilia range, which includes a Vintage, a Rosé, and Mum’s favourite, the Brut NV.”
A carefully balanced blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes make the Allan Scott Cecilia Brut NV a sophisticated Methode Traditionnelle style wine perfect for a special occasion – whether it’s a long lunch, an afternoon antipasto platter, or an aperitif before dinner.
How does one pair this lovely drink? “We’ll be pairing it with some deliciously fresh Marlborough seafood caught that day, and toasting her for being a wonderful mum.”
It is such a beautifully packaged bottle and would make a lovely gift for that significant woman in your life. This one’s for you mom!
Allan Scott Cecilia Brut NV RRP $29 and the full range of Allan Scott Wines are available from Glengarry’s and online at www.allanscott.com
