This Montana brut sparkling wine comes from New Zealand
Brut Sparkling wine is dry and bubbly. It has all the fun of Sparkling Wine without a sweet taste. Swordfish is the recommended food pairing. You may also try the suggested food pairings for regular Sparkling Wine including Fried Fish, Fried Shrimp or Oysters, Feta Cheese, and Crab Louis Salad. Just like its sweeter cousin, Brut Sparkling wine is fun.
Schramsberg in California is one of the top American Sparkling Wine producers. Their base product Schramsberg Vineyards Mirabelle Brut North Coast at about $20 is pretty good. In spite of its name you may find it somewhat sweet. Flavors include apple and baked bread. Another good choice is the (California) Roederer Estate Brut Sparkling Wine in the low-twenties with pear, spice, and hazelnut flavors. Roederer has been been in the winemaking business for about two hundred years and it shows. The French Champagne House Moët & Chandon has set up shop in both California and Australia. If you feel like spending about $27 go for the Domaine Chandon Australia Sparkling Brut tasting of figs and honey with floral notes.
