Charming sparkler

Clover Hill Cuvée Rosé NV, Tasmania, AUD $34

The colour is a pretty coral-pink and the bouquet is fresh and restrained, strawberry pinot noir aromas leading the way. The texture is lovely and creamy, soft and fluffy with fine bubbles and well-balanced liqueur sweetness. The finish is clean and refreshing. A sparkling rosé of considerable charm. (Diam)
