2009 Szigeti Pinot Noir Rose Brut Aus 13% $22

Tart strawberry fruit over smoky, ashy earth tones on the nose are joined by hints of white chocolate and rose petals.  Round and intense in the mouth, this brings a lot of ripe cherry to the front early on, with late arriving acidity adding a nice citrusy top note. There’s enough sweetness here to add roundness and accentuate the fruity nature of this wine but this never comes off as sweet. Finishing with clean, fresh raspberry and pithy white fruits, this is a balanced and generous sparkler. 88pts

    I like this list, though I am surprised to see Segura Viudas on it and not Gruet sparkling rose from Santa Fe.

    Gregory, I have a question. You've done a number of sparkling wine pieces this winter, but - unless I've missed it - I've yet to see a mention of English or Welsh fizz. This despite increasingly frequent wins at international competitions for the likes of RidgeView, Nyetimber, Camel Valley, Bolney, etc.. Is this because you just don't see our wines in the US, or because you don't like them? If the latter, what characteristic is it that doesn't appear? Thanks.
