Hinterland Winery - Ancestral Rosé 2023
Ancestral sparkling rosé is the perfect fit for your holiday luncheon and it warms every mother-in-law's heart.
Have you ever tried an Ancestral method sparkling wine? They’re quite rare. Made with the Gamay Noir grape, the Ancestral is deliciously elegant, with ripe strawberry on the nose and palate and a pleasing acidity on the finish. Reflective of the warmer 2022 vintage, the Ancestral's alcohol is a touch higher but is still the delicious Ancestral we've come to know over the years.
Named for the original way of making effervescent wine, the Ancestral is produced using similar techniques first employed in 1531, by the monks of Saint-Hillaire abbey in France. A difficult wine to produce, the carbon dioxide is captured during the primary fermentation producing a lightly sparkling, off-dry, delightfully fruit-forward wine.
Excellent with or without food. Excellent with your holiday luncheon (great day drinker) due to its lower alcohol content. Pair the Ancestral with your cheese or charcuterie boards, turkey or ham, Asian or Indian cuisine or lightly sweetened desserts like pavlovas or fruit pies.
