2019 Sparkling Rosé
2019 was an excellent year for sparkling wine! It was a wet cool growing season aggravated by Hurricane Dorian in September which snapped several end posts but left the vineyard relatively unscathed. Thankfully a long frost-free fall fully ripened grapes for sparkling.
The season gave us this uniquely fruit forward sparkling made from organic Marechal Foch grown in Falmouth on loam-clay soil. Gentle whole cluster pressing in a champagne bladder press extracted the minimal pigment and phenolics that are showcased. Dominant bright berry aromas follow to a long structured finish balanced with dosage to 22 grams per litre.
