NV Folktale Sparkling Rosé
80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay
Brilliant rose gold in color, the Rosé Brut sparkling wine opens with soft notes of watermelon, kiwi and a beautiful yeasty quality that invites you in. The palate is elegant, with cherry, floral, and a creamy texture that has a bright finish.
Folktale sparkling wine begins in the vineyard, early. Grapes for sparkling wine have to be picked at a lower sugar level than for our still wines, so we tend to harvest 3 weeks before we begin picking fruit for our still wines. For our first bottling of sparkling wine, we envisioned a wine that was bright, fun to drink, and food friendly. We put the blend together in a stainless steel tank and add bubbles through a forced carbonation method. This allows us to control the level of effervescence and achieve the desired texture of the wine. We targeted a softer, less aggressive style that was more like the texture of a prosseco or frizzante wine – perfect for a sunny day in Carmel Valley.
