Rivarose Mediterranee IGP Brut

Rivarose Mediterranee IGP Brut Posted on July 17, 2018Leave a comment

A sparkling alternative to the still, pale dry rosés. Rivarose is Provence’s largest sparkling wine producer, and its oldest. It is a soft and pretty pink in the glass. There is some breadiness coming from the second ferment in this wine, and its sibling, the Prestige. A blend of Syrah and Grenache, it has all the hallmarks of a Provence rosé – just with the added bonus of bubbles. Crisp, dry and spicy, with ripe and lush strawberries that hit the front of the palate while those bubbles deliver crispness and a fresh liveliness to the mid palate and beyond. It’s an easy drinker.
