2015 Archangel Rosé VQA

Although the tradition of making sparkling wine is more than 500 years old, it has recently experienced a sort of renaissance amongst wine drinkers.  These curious drinkers are recognizing that some of the highest quality sparkling wines come from non-traditional places and are in fact excellent everyday wines, not just for celebratory events.

All of our Archangel sparkling wines are vinified using the traditional method, which means that the wine was aged on lees in the bottle that is available on the shelf.  A pure and elegant way of crafting sparkling wine, this method allows the wine to develop a great amount of complexity, while maintaining its delicate character.  We believe that wine should be a reflection of the local terroir and the nuances of each vintage, therefore our sparkling wines are vintage dated.

While the rosé colour is a draw for many, this wine speaks for itself on the nose and palate.  Hints of cherry, cotton candy and orange peel are prominent up front, with hints of baked apple and stewed cranberry in lingering in the background.  The palate is quite fruit forward, considering this vintage spent nearly 5 years on lees.  On the palate, the berry flavours are supported by an underlying note of toast and nut.

Pair this sparkling with salmon steak, peppered pork loin, shellfish or glazed ham.
