Yellow Tail Releases Sparkling White Wine
Are you one of the people who likes cute on your wine labels? Y'know the type - someone who can't drink a wine unless it's got something cuddly and fuzzy staring back at them - a penguin, or perhaps a wallaby? So called "critter wines," big market wines aimed at just such folks, are all the rage in a lot of circles, and it looks like the critter wine stable just got one bottle bigger.
We just found out that Yellow Tail, the folks who have the aforementioned wallaby on their label, will be releasing a sparkling white wine on September 1. We'd certainly be interested in trying it as we've never had a bad experience with the other Yellow Tail varieties we've tried. Plus, it's being released nationally so it should be easy to get hands on a bottle - and it should retail for around 11 bucks. Can't go wrong there.
See below for the press release we received.
