Barefoot Bubbly Rose' Cuvee'

I love a good wine, but when it comes down to it, I'm a bubbles girl.  If it sparkles, I'm in.  If you're looking for some bubbly to help Ring in the New Year give this a try!

On Christmas Eve day I made a stop at the local wine shop to see if I could find a lovely Sparkling Rose' to try.  Since I was going to be the only one drinking, I didn't want to spend a lot of money.  It's a pitty to waste what I can't drink, but second day bubble just fall flat when not resealed well.  My mission was to pick up the Yellow Tail sparkling rose' with the new resealable cap, but instead I came home with was Barefoot Bubbly Rose' Cuvee'.  Barefoot wines is offering a fabulous array of sparklers from Brut to Moscato, the quintuple selection and sale price (I picked up my bottle for $6.99) drew me in.

Barefoot Bubbly Rose' Cuvee' is a strikingly pink pour that bubbled up in the glass, and left behind some lovely legs.  It's bouquet of sweet strawberry and rose is enjoyable and inviting.  Superbly tiny bubbles created an explosion in my mouth, a sweet and fruity taste that finished just slightly drier than I had expected.  Barefoot Bubbly Rose' Cuvee' is fun and highly drinkable without being pretentious or taking it's self to seriously.  It's a fabulous every day sparkler with a price point that welcomes everyone.

The one small down point is that this seemed to be uncorking this wine. It is, as has been reported by others online, really difficult to get the cork out of the bottle.  Have someone with strong hands do the job and remember to twist the cork out, not just pull.

Winemaker's Notes: "Think pink with Barefoot Bubbly Rosé Cuvée! This slightly sweet sparkling wine is versatile, great tasting and perfect for a special occasion or everyday celebration.  Its delightful aromas and sweet flavors make a fun, flavorful and affordable addition to any meal."
