It’s time to pop the bubbles! Happy Fizzy Friday wine lovers.
A big thanks to Anna from Wingara Wine Group for sending over this delicious Azahara Wines Sparkling Rosé NV summer fizz for us to try.
“Each year, the best parcels of Chardonnay age folded into a modified solera system, so that fresh flavours mingle with older, complex characters. Pinot Noir is then blended in and secondary fermentation (Charmat) is them initiated to produce bubbles and bring everything into harmony.”
If you don’t know what a solera system is, hit up google. I learnt all about them in my WSET3 course. Very cool!
It retails at a extremely approachable $15 and I must say, it went down a treat in our house…
It’s a pretty sparkly pale peach colour in the glass. The nose has a hint of minerality mixed with apricots/peaches and cream (it was making me think of cheesecake) with hints of grapefruit sherbet, red berries and traces of flowers. In the mouth it has some fruit sweetness mid palate but a lovely, clean dry finish. Well balanced with a smooth mousse (mouthfeel). Great value.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
