I'm still learning to decipher the scents in wine/champagne and while I cannot name all of the characteristics, I can provide a novice's perspective which may actually be helpful to others. This champagne has a very fruity aroma and taste with cherries and raspberries being the most recognizable.
Great color, good intensity, fairly dry.
External Reviews for Korbel Sweet Rose
Like it says, this is a sweet bubbly. It has raspberry, strawberry, vanilla and toast flavors that are easy to like. Made from Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and Syrah, it’s a lovely wine for those who like their sparklers on the sweet side.
Even if you don’t like sweet sparkling wine, it will be hard to turn down another glass of this beauty. It’s so clean and delicious, with a raspberry sorbet and vanilla richness. One of the best sweet bubblies out there, at a great price.
KORBEL Sweet Rosé is made from a complex selection of both red and white grape varieties. The blend is designed to have very bright fruit flavors and aromas. The harvesting of the red varieties such as zinfandel and sangiovese early in the ripening process helps achieve the desired style for this cuvée. - Winery
