This vigorous sparkling rosé lights up the glass with delicate bubbles and subtle shades of cherry. A rich raspberry nose harmonizes with a hint of soft stone fruit on the palate. Chardonnay and Chenin dominate, but it’s the Pinot Noir that brings this wine to fullness. The vineyard practices sustainable agriculture and uses organic fertilizer. The winery is located near St. Hilaire where Benedictine monks produced the first sparkling wine in 1531. Keep a few bottles chilled to welcome friends and make every day special.
Pair this sparkling rosé with pink-hued foods such as shrimp, salmon and tarama spread. It is also lovely with fresh fruit desserts like red fruit pie and strawberries melba.
