Celebrate Friday the 13th with this heavenly drink

There is no better way to set the mood of a dinner party than with the pop of a cork of a bottle of bubbly!

This sparkler from Angels Gate Winery perched atop the Niagara Escarpment is made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes.  In the wine world, a sparkling of this type is referred to as ‘Blanc de Noirs’. Since the juice was left in contact with the skins of the Pinot Noir grapes for about 1 hour after the grapes have been crushed & pressed, the wine takes on a light pink colour.

This is the first sparkling wine made at Angels Gate by Australian winemaker Philip Dowell … now he makes 3 bubblies! And with the winery celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, I am certain that there will be lots of corks flying to mark the occasion!

Cheers & Enjoy!

Angel’s Gate Archangel Pinot Noir Rosé 2008

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Dry with fine mousse (winespeak: bubbles) elegant aromas & tastes of wild strawberries, rhubarb & even fresh baked bread.

Suggested Food Pairing: Absolutely anything or nothing at all.  Dry & crisp with a soft texture, this wine is simply delicious on its own.
