* Continued Research

It's a hard job, but somebody has to do it.  I've tested two more types of bubbly.  Considering Henkeltrocken is the only name I recognize here, unless we hit the 'good stuff',  I've tested pretty much the entire lot with mixed results.  The other day I spied a brand from Argentina.  Considering they make some fairly decent wine I decided to give it a try.

CRAP!  Absolutely.  Very sweet even though it is labeled 'brut'.  No more of that.  It was $198.00 pesos which converts to about $16.00 Cdn.  Would not buy it again.

The I spied Cooks.  Made in the California.  Have never seen it in Canada.  At a price of $86.00 pesos ($7.00 Cdn) it was priced very reasonably.  Real cork!  A good intentional, vivacious pop.  Nice bubbles.  AND ... the best taste for me yet.  It could be dryer.  Still, the best of what I have tried.  The decision has been made.  Research in this department is closed.  Cooks it is for celebrations at Quinta de Luz. 

For all of you in the US - hope you had a great long weekend.  Happy 4th.
