Murgo Brut Rosé Metodo Classico Sicilia 2014 $25
Grape Varietals: Nero Mascalese
Fresh and refined, this has aromas of small red berry, yellow wild flower, tangerine and baking spice. The creamy, quenching palate doles out strawberry, red cherry and orange zest framed in crisp acidity and lively, elegant bubbles.
Raventos, Blanc des Nits Brut Rosé, Barcelona 2011 $25
Grape Varietals: Macabeo, Xarelo, Parrillada Monastrell
Nestled up in the hills of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia to the west of Barcelona, this biodynamic sparkling Rosé from Raventós i Blanc hails from the heartland of Cava. A pale pink hue hints at a restrained and understated style. The aroma is wonderfully intense with ripe strawberries and cream, and toasted pastry.
Val de Mer by Patrick Piuze Brut Nature Rosé $24
Grape Varietals: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Made in the Champagne method from superstar Chablis vintner Patrick Piuze, naturally fermented in this bottle, this is a delightful, fresh Rosé sparkler made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir just south of Champagne. This wine has a nutty nuance to the red plum and cherry fruit, with lovely citrus and strawberry notes. Big prickly bubbles on the tongue with a nice hand of salty mineral like notes on the finish, very fresh and bright style with a crisp finish.
