The nose of Handley's Brut Rosé offers a bounty of subtle and enticing aromas including cassis, fraise de bois, tea leaves, and bergamot. In the mouth, the light texture and fine mousse dance on the palate, enhancing lively flavors of strawberry cream, a hint of citrus, and a long, elegant finish. Sparkling wine pairs easily with many dishes. The refreshing bubbles and balanced acidity of this mostly Pinot Noir blend make it an especially wonderful accompaniment to salted Marcona almonds, oysters on the half shell, and smoked salmon.

"Shows lovely aromas of wild flowers, strawberry and spicy yeast, with mature, rich, yet still delicate flavors of raspberry, cinnamon, and baked apple. From California."
