Hop off the WineTubeMap at Pink Fizz for this cava rosado. A great all-rounder that isn't too sweet or too dry.
On paper, pink fizz is everybody’s favourite wine… but in practice it’s a bit more divisive than that. Some like it sweeter, others drier. The Anna de Codorniu seems to span the divides in a way that others can’t.
It has the intense red berry flavour you would expect of a pink fizz, strawberries and raspberries leap out of the glass. But on the palate it isn’t sweet at all, providing a refreshing bite and palate cleansing acidity. The combination of this is a bright, refreshing wine with lots of fruity character but no lingering sweetness. For me, that makes it far more drinkable, and versatile and I find in tastings it is universally enjoyed.
That acidity makes it a great food match, but don’t pair it with anything sweet. This is for bowls of ottolenghi style salads or, if you don’t fancy slaving over a salad, it would be great with a M&S picnic.
This wine was part of the WineLab and selected in collaboration with Vino Wines.
