Gray Monk celebrates 30 years this year - making them one of BC's oldest wineries.
The Brut Rose is made in the traditional method (as Champagne is) and from the varieties Gamay and Pinot Meunier.
It's a salmon-hued bubbly with aromas of fresh summer berries, peaches and orange peel. The bubbles are fine, there is a kiss of sweetness to make the flavours pop. Similar peach, tart summer berries and juicy citrus flavours dominate and the finish is juicy.
A sparkling for any occasion, but it will pair nicely with salmon, soft and mild cheeses, turkey, mildly spicy dishes or most appetizers.
