Wine of the Weekend

Fresita Orange Sunset Sparkling Wine

Ghosts and goblins start to appear, there is an eerie howl to the wind, and a black cat crosses your path as you walk to the LCBO. Are you wondering what goes with the leftover candy on Halloween night? This year we’re handing out gummies, lolly pops and chocolate, so we’ll be sipping on a chilled glass of Fresita Orange Sunset Sparkling wine. The bubble and tangy-sweet flavours taste like liquid candy, but this isn’t getting shared with the trick-or-treaters!

Tasting Notes: Fresita Orange Sunset combines fresh and fruity sparkling wine made from Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato grapes with the bright, juicy flavours of orange and a hint of strawberry for a ready-made mimosa-style sipper!

Enjoy With: Candy! Pour on its own or over ice with a side of sweet and sour gummies like Starburst or sour keys, lolly pops or fruit flavoured gummies. Have a sip with a bite of milk chocolate for a burst of chocolate orange! Before the candy comes out, try it with appetizers and finger foods, spicy Thai dishes or fried foods with hot sauce.

Style: An orange-sweet, refreshing sparkling wine.

Terroir/Region: Growing grapes in Chile’s renowned Maipo and Colchagua Valleys, the staff at Viña Casal de Gorchs uses the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes mountains to the east to create balanced and refreshing sparkling wines. These are then blended with fruit-sweet orange juice for a ready-to-go mimosa!

Producer: After immigrating to Chile from Spain, the Rabat family was determined to continue its winemaking traditions in its adopted home. After founding Viña Casal de Gorchs over 80 years ago, the family is at the top of its game. It only produces sparkling wines and you will taste this dedication in every sip.

AvailabilityFresita Orange Sunset is available in the Sparkling Wine section of your local LCBO and for online ordering. Have a happy Halloween!
