Bohigas Cava Brut Reserva Rose
Dusty, creamy aromas of yeast, oak and vanilla open this rosé. The palate is more crisp and pure, with scouring acidity and overall tightness. Cranberry, red plum and briny flavors finish fresh and citric, with a hint of stony minerality.
A sparkling rose, the non-vintage Brut Rosat Cava is fashioned from the indigenous varietal called Trepat, blended with a touch of Pinot Noir. It is macerated on its skins for a few hours to achieve the desired color (relatively dark for a European rose), and then blended and bottled for a secondary fermentation to produce the bubbles. Strawberry, cherry and mulberry fruit notes intermixed with peppery, herb-like characteristics are found in this fresh, medium-bodied rose. It is best drunk over the next year.
Lightly tangy and fresh, with flavors of kirsch, wild strawberry and blood orange. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.
