Review 2017 Rosalie

2017 Rosalie

C$29.95
(C$29.95 Incl. tax)
This 2017 Rosalie is the third vintage of our well known “Rosalie” Rosé Sparkling Wine. Named in honour of our proprietor’s mother, Rosalie is a stunning example of how a Pinot Noir Rosé Sparkling can be both refreshing and decadent.
Description

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

Crafted exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape, the colour of a rosé sparkling wine poses a great challenge for winemakers. While some producers find comfort and consistency in using Pinot Noir reserve wine to achieve a rosé colour, our winemaker is adamant in relying solely on the Pinot Noir skins to achieve Rosalie’s rich and vivid coral colour.

On the nose, ripe strawberry and raspberry are complimented by a touch of rhubarb and red currant. On lees for a year and a half, bright acid on the palate helps express pleasant tart berry and cherry notes that remain on the crisp finish.

FOOD MATCHES

Our favourite food pairings for this wine are smoked trout with chive crème fraiche, grilled salmon or shrimp, warm tumeric chicken and quinoa salad, kale salad with a creamy lemon vinaigrette or sushi. For desserts, Rosalie pairs beautifully with fresh berries, strawberry cream tarts, old-fashioned style doughnuts. For cheeses, we highly recommend Manchego, Mozzarella and Gouda.
