Tasting Notes

A sparkling rosé that is just like Cava (but cannot be labeled as such because the wine is made just outside of the DO). It is dry on the palate yet full of mixed berries on the palate. Delicious and compelling this should be your pick to serve to before and during your next gathering. Excellent with starters but does work well with fried chicken as well.
