Korbel Brut Rosé
KORBEL Brut Rosé is delicate and crisp, featuring bright flavors of strawberry, cherry and melon. Its medium-dry, slightly sweet style makes it one of the most versatile, food-friendly varietals.
We use Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Gamay lots that have a noticeable pink hue and generous strawberry and black-cherry-like flavors for our Brut Rosé. The goal is to consistently produce a rosé that is flavorful, bright and aromatic. One interesting aspect of making a rosé using the classic méthode champenoise process is the color balance. The yeast used in the bottle fermentation process removes some of the color from the California champagne, and the amount of color loss is unpredictable. To correct for this, we use a small amount of young red wine in the sweetening dosage to add a note of complexity and adjust the color back to a nice pink hue.
