Wine Review: This dark pink colored sparkler opens with a fragrant strawberry and Maraschino cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly sweet and slightly effervescent. The flavor profile is a ripe red cherry with notes of strawberry. I also detected hints of plum and red grapes. The finish remains sweet and refreshing. This sparkler is made for fans of sweet wines. It is well made and should be enjoyed on its own. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Intense, primary aromas of cotton candy and blackcurrant with musk, Turkish delight and mandarin peel in the background. Rich in flavor yet refined by cleansing natural acidity. The spritzy dissolved carbon dioxide also leaves a refreshed palate. Pair with fresh summer berries and clotted cream, crepes with orange zest and lemon syrup or gorgonzola cheese and fresh pears.
