Veritas Scintilla, Monticello Virginia sparkling wine is an excellent pairing with the bacon wrapped chili lime shrimp. Made in methode champenoise this bubbly pops with tiny bubbles all through the glass. Buttery lemon aromas with notes of crisp green apple followed by a quick finish. Veritas website recommends pairing with oysters, Marcona almonds, salty potato chips and caviar.
