This nearly garnet Rose, like all our non-vintage sparkling wines, is aged 24 months en tirage. It has a lovely, bright floral bouquet with hints of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. On the palate, it is rich and fruity in a dry, Brut style. The flavor of berries continues on the palate, revealing more strawberry, raspberry, cherry.
The winery calls this, "The Juice of Love." Well, perhaps, especially if you really like pure Pinot Noir. This non-vintage Gruet Sparking Rosé is fresh and fun; well textured, crisp but not overly acidic. I see this one as a New World bubbly. Medium pinkish color, nice beads; bright strawberry aroma, plenty of fruit; medium bodied; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; crisp and well define strawberry flavors; smooth aftertaste.
