Loimer Brut Rosé, Niederosterriech, Austria $30
If you’re an adventurous fizz fanatic like I am, you are always seeking out new sparklers to enjoy. This unique bubbly crafted by iconic winemaker, Fred Loimer, is made in the traditional method of ageing in bottle. A blend of grapes including Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the organically-grown wine is taut and tantalizing. Floral aromas and red berry freshness make this stylishly dry rosé one to sip as an aperitif or with lighter fish dishes. It’s an Austrian treasure.
