Brazil’s Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé has arrived in the United States. The new offering is made to be enjoyed along with summer moments.
This refreshing and dry take on rosé expresses notes of berry and peach blending to create a sparkling that is matured for 12 months and made in the traditional Champenoise method. The Brazilian team behind the new offering sought to produce a sparkling wine “as versatile as the country itself”, says the press release.
Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé is produced from the two grapes most commonly associated with the Champenoise method; Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Noir (40%), fusing to create to a vinho that is not too sweet yet still citric, with a well-balanced bitter of berries that evolve in the mouth. With a light opening taste and a strong toast finish, the Pinot Noir also brings a softness to the sparkling.
Produced in partnership with one of Brazil’s oldest wine-making houses, Casa Valduga, in Vale dos Vinhedos, or the Valley of Vineyards, Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé embodies generations of tradition, craftsmanship and innovation that has led the Valdugas to be distinguished as one of the most highly-regarded wine producers in the country– having also been granted a Gold award at the 2020 Vinalies Internationales in Paris.
“It’s an honor to work alongside Casa Valduga to produce a fresh and unexpected rosé that is equal parts casual and luxuriant for life’s everyday celebrations,” said Nick Walker, Dom Maria CEO. “Considering the skill, sophistication and culture that goes into our wine production, I find it surprising that so many people remain unaware of the delicious sparklings coming out of Brazil. My hope is that the Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé will play a part in changing that, while also providing an elegant and easy-drinking summer offering that can be enjoyed day or night.”
Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé is currently available via the brand’s official website for $30 per bottle and $100 per four-pack in 41 states, as well as in select retailers and restaurants in NY, with new on-premise partners in CT, NJ, MA, RI, FL, TX and CA to be announced throughout summer and fall.
