To mark Valentine's Day, Okanagan Crush Pad sparkling winemaker Lynzee Schatz made a very limited quantity of delicious Haywire Pink Bub using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Client news: Haywire winery Posted by Leeann Froese
Last year at this time, Haywire released an experimental lot of their sparkling wine, the Bub, with a pink dosage and released it just in time for Valentine’s Day. The wine was a hit beyond expectations and sold out in a week and a half!
Well, the Pink Bub is back, and this time, it has its own pearly white label (designed by our team) and we are so excited to share that the press is just as excited for this year's release.
There are many positive reviews and 'love' for the Pink Bub, just in time for Valentine's Day.
Kurtis Kolt from WE | The Westender says "Pink peppercorns galore entertain raspberries."
Jurgen Gothe from The Georgia Straight says "A delicious and deep-fruited bubble."
Editor Jim Tobler's #WineWednesday Pick in MONTECRISTO Magazine "People will be impressed just looking at it [we'll take that], but even more so when they imbibe."
Treve Ring from WineAlign says "Forget flowers, buy rosés."
Treve also includes the Pink Bub in her regular column in EAT magazine and says "A fitting pick for St. Valentine’s Day and celebrating the sweethearts in your life."
Kayla Bordignon writes about it on her blog Uncork BC
In Stimuli magazine, Kristine Carrick includes the Pink Bub in her Valentine's Day roundup: "I’ve decided that the pink and red day on the calendar should be a reminder to treat yourself."
If you don't already know about the Pink Bub, this sparkling wine is a true labour of love and is a tribute to the lovely Alison Scholefield, known as the Bub, Bubba, Bubster, or Alibubba in her early days.
This wine was made with 51% Pinot Noir and 49% Chardonnay grapes grown in a cool mountain vineyard site near Oliver. Whole cluster pressed, fermented cool, and secondary bottle-fermented. At disgorging, a dosage made from red wine was added to give Pink Bub its lively colour.
Closed with a crown cap to ensure this wine tastes just as winemaker Michael Bartier intends. This wine bursts with crisp and elegant green apple with a slight cherry note – a lively expression of Okanagan freshness. At just $24.90 per bottle; get yours now!
