Mineral-rich, firm, and slightly floral-raspberry, this wine tempts you to dream in the sun (if you’re not already there). Grapefruit freshness gives even more lightness. This is a serious rosé with a French soul.
It’s a good thing that sparkling wines and still wines need different winemaking processes! Since the pressing for the rosé sparkling wine also produces part of this wine, winemaker Mark Barth leaves the grapes in contact with the must for eight to twelve hours after crushing. This is how rich color and berry aromas get into the wine. The wine is completely dry (2 grams of residual sugar) and entirely matured in stainless steel to support its taut, fresh character.
With its freshness, tautness, and clear berry aromas, the 2020 Pinot Noir Rosé goes well with classic pasta dishes with light sauces like Aglio Olio or Carbonara, but also with pickled vegetables, salami, or ham.
