Tasting Notes

A bright and lively sparkling with an inviting complexity. Pale ruby with shades of salmon pink. Vibrant red fruit notes — think strawberries, red currants, and black cherries — combine with classic minerality and a crisp Nova Scotia signature.

Not only do sparkling rosés add merriment to any occasion when sipped as an apéritif, they define versatility — pairing beautifully with pork tenderloin, duck, lobster, or Mediterranean-inspired dishes. This is a sparkling designed to enjoy.
