Sixteen Ridges Sparkling Rosé 2013

Tasting Note

Sumptuous, rich palate of strawberry, cherry, redcurrant and raspberry – summer pudding in a glass. The vibrant acidity leaves the palate clean and crisp with long lasting raspberry finish. This is perfect as an aperitif or delicious alongside a bowl of ripe strawberries.
