Fresita Orange Sunset Sparkling Wine

Summer weather has arrived just in time for Mimosa Day on May 16, and if you just found out about this celebration, spread the word! This weather was built for sparkling wine cocktails, which makes it the perfect time to grab a bottle of Fresita Orange Sunset. This mimosa-in-a-bottle is the perfect sip for brunch on the patio, afternoons in the sunshine and celebrating Mimosa Day!

Tasting Notes: Fresita Orange Sunset combines 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: Appetizers and finger foods, spicy main courses like curries, fried foods with hot sauce, or with fruity desserts like tarts or pies. Try a splash in your favourite cocktails that use orange or citrus flavours or enjoy a glass on its own or over ice.

Style: A sweet, refreshing, orange-flavoured sparkling wine.

Terroir/Region: Growing grapes in Chile’s renowned Maipo and Colchagua valleys, the staff at Viña Casal de Gorchs takes advantage of 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. Now, 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.

Availability: Fresita Orange Sunset sparkling wine is available for the summer in the Sparkling Wine section of your local LCBO and for online ordering. Mimosa Day has never been easier to celebrate!
