Rosemont of Virginia 2018 Extra Brut Sparkling Rose
You won't find many 100% Chambourcin sparkling wines, but this example from Rosemont of Virginia will make you wonder why there aren't more.
The nose is fresh with cranberry, rhubarb and strawberry fruit along with notes of orange peel and spice. Fruity and fun, the palate is fresh and berried – and definitely drives in the pet-nat lane. It's dry but not austere and the acidity is both juicy and a little gritty.
