Reviews and Ratings

Dianne Fisher - Sommelier, ISG rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red colour with fine and persistent bubbles in the glass. Intense aromatics of raspberries and blackberries readies your palate for a delicious, semi-sweet treat with a delicate mousse texture. A versatile wine as a dessert or aperitif at only 6.5% abv.
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

P: Ahhh summer, how I miss you and yet here you are in my glass! You smell like tart raspberries and you taste like them too! All in a pretty pinky-red package.

A: The nose is very summery indeed! The grape is red muscat, grown near the foot of the Alps in northeast Italy. So fresh and floral like raspberries and grapes, because muscat is one of the few wine grapes that actually smells like grapes! Palate is softly effervescent and flavorful. Again there is the raspberry note with a bubbly crème fraiche-like texture and this would be excellent with fruit trifle or strawberries and cream. It’s sweet but light and balanced. Such a sunny day/beach wine but great in winter to remind you that such luxury is on it’s way.

P: This has just enough bubbles to make me smile and the sweetness is in perfect balance. Alex has made a great pairing suggestions but I don’t need any dessert to accompany you since you’re such a fruity delight all on your own. However, if I did have to choose a dessert, methinks you’d be lovely with dark chocolate, raspberry truffles!
