Notes from the Winemaker:

Very bright cherry–pink color. Well-developed bubbles, constant and small in size. Fruity exuberant aroma dominated by a variety of forest fruits along with delicate tannins. An initially potent flavor with good structure and just the right degree of acidity that maintains a perfect balance throughout its prolonged lingering aftertaste.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"Limpid orange-pink. Lively, spice-accented aromas of fresh strawberry and orange zest, with a smoky mineral quality adding lift. Juicy, sharply focused red berry and tangerine flavors become spicier with air and take on a suave candied rose quality. A refreshingly bitter blood orange note carries a long, incisive finish that shows excellent delineation and tangy lift. (aged for 18 months on its lees)" - Josh Raynolds (Apr 2019)

91 Points & #51 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:

"The flavors of nectarine and white cherry are fresh and pure in this elegant sparkling rosé, with pretty accents of ground ginger, chalk and pink grapefruit sorbet riding the fine bead and lingering on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2022. 5,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. "- AN (Nov 2019)

91 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The largest production cuvée is the 2016 Brut Reserva Rosé, a blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and 20% Pinot Noir. It has a complex bouquet of cherries, orange rind, and subtle spice that gives way to a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant Sparkling Rosé that has an exuberant mousse, terrific balance, and a great finish." - Jeb Dunnuck (9/6/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2016 Rose Brut Reserva is a blend of 60% Monastrell and 20% each Garnacha and Pinot Noir from a dry, warm year after another dry year (2015), but it managed to keep good freshness, with only 11.5% alcohol and a very low pH of 2.95. It has nice balance, and the seven grams of sugar are nicely integrated and balance the acidity. It matured for no less than 20 months in bottle. All of the wines from Corpinnat are very recently disgorged, to have Corpinnat rather than Cava corks. 52,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutierrez (Aug 2019)

Wine Enthusiast:
Light strawberry and raspberry aromas are a touch jammy and sweet smelling. This Monastrell-based rosé is slightly aggressive but not coarse on the palate. Peachy, melony flavors are more generic than specific, while this finishes clean and easy. - MS (12/31/2018)
