Traditionally, fine Rosé sparkling wines and Champagnes have been made in very small quantities, and ours is no exception. Often they are produced for a specific customer group or a few restaurants that have a fondess fo the salmon-hued wine. In fact, one of our early Rosé-Sparkling-loving visitors was the impetus for our own Rosé.
From the acclaimed 2014 vintage, the delicacy of this wine's translucent peach hue belies its full, round palate. On the nose, heady aromas of peaches and cream, red currants, lime blossoms and white flowers beckon the first sip. Silky flavors of wild strawberries, roses and nectarines evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day through the long, lovely finish.
We made this wine by leaving part of the Pinot Noir juice in contact with the skins for three days during harvest. A warm toastiness evolves from this lees contact and combines with the ethereal Pinot Noir fruit character. As the wine ages and the tiny bubbles are formed, an elegant wine of great poise evolves.
Food Pairing Notes
Remarkably versatile, classic rosé pairings include duck and salmon but our vintage Rosé Sparkling is also a surprisingly good match with steaks, burgers, and light desserts. It is a beautiful brunch wine, for weddings and other romantic occasions. But honestly, it's delicious anytime!
