Wine Review: This attractive light peach colored sparkler opens with a nutty black tea like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly creamy with lots of bubbles. The flavor profile is a mild raspberry with notes of black tea and minerality throughout. The finish is dry, rather tingly, and its minerality lingers for quite sometime. This sparkler would be a nice opening option to serve with smoked salmon or bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A brilliant salmon pink color with an effusive pinpoint mousse, the rose exudes aromas of fresh, ripe strawberries, rose petals and citrus blossoms along with white peach and bread dough nuances. On the palate, the wine shows creamy textures and enduring fresh berry and lemony flavors precisely balanced by bright acidity.
