Blue Pyrenees Dry Sparkling Rosé NV
Not a lot of of people know it but Sparkling Rosés can be a brilliant and unusual match for a wide range of dishes. Their combination of fresh acidity and a pretty array of flavours helps them to match meals that typically might be paired up with riesling or pinot noir. So next time you are whipping up some prawns, scallops and even duck pancakes with a bit of spice, crack open a sparkling rosé, such as this deliciously dry wine from Blue Pyrenees.
It has a pale salmon colour with fine, creamy bubbles and opens up with concentrated wild strawberry aromas under which there is plenty of savoury, brioche complexity – much more than you’d expect for a wine at this price. The palate is then bright and youthful, with crisp acidity and some attractive textural richness, which in particular drives its potential for food matching. The wine finishes with power, complexity and a long finish, again with those savoury yeasty brioche elements adding plenty of interest.
