SEPPI 2017 Brut Rosé was produced in the traditional Champagne method. A base wine of Chardonnay was fermented in 30% neutral french oak, 70% stainless steel and blended with Pinot Noir before tirage bottling in April 2018. The wine aged in bottle for 19th months on lees before disgorging in October 2019 with a dosage of 4g/L.
Kelsey says if she was stranded on a desert island with only one choice of wine, this 2017 SEPPI Brut Rosé would be it! The initial tangy bite gives way to fresh, light strawberry flavors and noted minerality. At 4g/L of residual sugar and 12% alcohol, this wine tastes nearly bone dry with a light and crisp texture, making it a perfect wine to sip without food. It also pairs beautifully sushi, oysters and happy hour classics like cheese and crackers.
