Mirabelle Brut Rosé, California – Non-Vintage – Sparkle Alert – San Jose Mercury News
“Making great sparkling wine is not complicated. It simply takes the right growing conditions and ample aging in the bottle. In fact, these days, you can find remarkably fine bubbles from all over the world — and, in many cases, for around $20 a bottle in the same stores that you’re stopping by for staples.
“The grapes for this stunner hail from the winery’s cool-climate vineyards in Carneros, Anderson Valley, and coastal areas of Sonoma and Marin. Two years aging in the bottle produces elegant toasty aromas, bright flavors, and lively mousse. Yum.”
