NV Segura Viudas Aria Cava Rose Brut 12% $12

Lots of creamy raspberry fruit on the nose over light white mushroom, chalk, and floral aromas with a hint of smoke and some marzipan notes. Pretty fruity on entry, this shows bright acidity, but the sweetness still comes through a touch too assertively. The fruit blends nice herbal and faintly vegetal, beet rooty elements with the rich raspberry and cherry fruit on the palate. This finishes fairly dry with that beet root note helping to anchor the fruit and lend it tension. 87pts

    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.
