Cruse Wine Co.'s Tradition Sparkling Rosé LC18 is a perfectly-balanced, lively sparkling wine hailing from California. Bursting with refreshing notes of strawberries, citrus zest, and delicate floral undertones, it delights with its subtle effervescence and crisp finish. The wine's beautiful salmon-pink hue is as pleasing to the eyes as the taste is to the palette. Produced following the champenoise method, it is aged to perfection and medley of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and a hint of Valdiguié grape varieties. This wine embodies Cruse Wine Co.'s commitment to tradition and innovation, making it a splendid accompaniment to a variety of dishes.
The wine is a pale, peachy salmon, with a soft gentle mousse. The nose is slightly toasty, with cherry, biscuit, and clean, mossy, forest floor — like one would find in older California Pinot Noir. The palate is bright acid and rich, marzipan, and unripe strawberries. Extremely drinkable.
