Vineyards 
Korbel Brut Rosé California Champagne is blended to showcase the brightness of the fruit we grow in California's best wine regions.  Each of the four varieties used in this cuvée makes its own unique contribution to the blend.  Pinot Noir brings a black cherry and strawberry element to the blend while Sangiovese adds structure and a red cherry flavor.  The Gamay portion has a soft raspberry aroma.  Chenin Blanc is a white variety that keeps the blend delicate and adds a faint melon character.

Winemaking
We use Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Gamay lots that have a noticeable pink hue for our Brut Rosé, looking for lots that have generous strawberry and black cherry-like flavors.  The goal is to consistently produce a Rosé that is flavorful, bright and aromatic.

One interesting aspect of making a Rosé using the classic Méthode Champenoise process is the color balance.  The yeast used in the bottle fermentation process removes some of the color from the champagne, and the amount of color loss is unpredictable.  To correct for this, we use a small amount of young red wine in the sweetening dosage to add a note of complexity and adjust the color back to a nice pink hue.

Food Pairing 

This wine is very versatile and pairs well with a wide range of foods.  Try it with grilled shrimp, seafood, sausage, pork or chicken.  Its slight sweetness also works well with flavorful barbecues and tomato sauces, and it's a great accompaniment to pizza.  This Rosé would be perfect on a holiday table as it's wonderful with turkey, ham and creamy vegetable side dishes.
