Dagmar NV Pragma Sparkling Rosé, California
In keeping with its name “pragma,” or an enduring love, this lovely sparkling wine with a pink hue is easy to adore from the moment the bubbles and the glass meet. Crafted with prized grapes sourced from top winegrowing regions in California, this fun, fruit-forward style is great to share with friends or family members at relaxing occasions during the day, set the tone for festivities in the evening hours, or stimulate the senses while enjoying a flavorful brunch on Sunday.
With a mixture of elegant bubbles, this aromatic gem delights the nostrils with fresh, fruity scents of ripe berries and exotic melon, peach nectar, crisp red apple, and toasted almonds. On the palate, dazzling notes of ripe raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb are enhanced with nuances of cocoa, cranberry, and nutmeg. As the sparkling sensations continue, the sweet fruit flavors are balanced with a lively streak of crisp acidity and creamy texture. Enjoyment awaits from start to finish.
Food Pairings: Young cheeses, popcorn with pink Himalayan salt, lox and bagels, heirloom tomatoes with fresh mint, fatty fish dishes, paella, baby back ribs, Indian and Korean cuisine, and fresh fruit parfait.
