FROM SPARKLING BLUE TO ROSE PINK…
Wine news alert! The makers of SKYFALL BLUE (Barcelona) have a new line of sparkling wine and this time it’s PINK!
Cavas Rosmas, specializing in the elaboration of Cavas, has just launched the first Cava of a new line with the AMICUM brand. Yes, there are more colours to come!
They say, “It is a Cava made with the varieties Pinot noir and Garnacha in changing proportions, to give life to a brut rosé. Made from the traditional method, in which the house already has a complete experience, the new sparkling wines come to form a complete line of Cavas for an audience looking for new products based on innovation.
Pink Cavas, however, represent a very attractive segment. The brand new AMICUM Brut Rosé is made with 60% pinot noir and 40% Garnacha, it has a subtle sweetness typical of the brut category, which makes it the main course of celebrations and cocktails.”
Company Founder Jaume Ros Amigó explains, “Commercially, we saw that there was a good opportunity to launch a new line of sparkling wines, evolved into new coupages and grape varieties that showed their full potential. And so we did it. ”
