Unsworth Vineyards Sparkling Rosé Brut NV

British Columbia, CanadaThis is the second charmat-method line of wines from Unsworth, the first being their island-centric Charme de l'Isle. This blends gamay, pinot blanc, and pinot noir from Okanagan and Fraser Valleys, as well as Vancouver Island, along with 30% reserve wines. Those reserve wines are noted on first sniff, with an aged floral, aged gouda note, which carries onto the palate. Some dried raspberry, fresh strawberry notes join the mature notes, along with bright acidity, and a hint of spice. 7 g/L holds this pretty dry, and in good balance to the tight acidity. A bit disjointed, I'd love to see more of the pretty, fresh, primary fruit and floral flavours so much more suited to the charmat method.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.49 BCLS Producer: Unsworth Vineyards ULCDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
