Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Opaque, dark watermelon color. Light strawberry with just a touch of citrus and floral in the aroma. Vibrant effervescence, dryish with a fresh mouth-feel; yeasty strawberry and peach flavors, defiantly “Brut” with a lively and refreshing fruity finish. Not a strong Rosé, but a perfect summer afternoon on the patio sipping wine. It was savory, VERY easy drinking and the sparkling mouth-feel really stepped it up beyond the normal Rosé. It was a Delightful light and fresh sparkling Rosé.

    She said: Pale salmon color and cloudy. Lovely floral scents set the stage for delicate flavors in the mouth. With a light body and smooth texture the wine was dry and refreshing. The finish ended quickly and without notable attributes. The food accompaniments where a poor choice for the wine and did not take advantage of its refreshing mouth feel. I would like to try this one again with a more suitable food or drinking without food.
