Traditional method sparkling wines have always been a strength of 13th Street Winery, with a long line of accolades since making their first bubbly in 1998. Their new Rose Brut bubbles were launched into Vintages on October 10th this year making them even more accessible! Made from pinot noir, chardonnay and a little syrah, mainly from the 2010 vintage, this brut is made in the ‘traditional method’. It has a lovely pink hue and it shows vibrant but serious fruit flavours and bright acidity. Don’t be fooled by the ripe red berry, mineral, light spice aromas–this wine is too dry to pair with dessert. It’s exceptionally well made and very drinkable, either on its own or with food.
