WINE: BAY OF FIRES ‘Tigress’ Sparkling Rose NV

Type: Sparkling Rose
Origin: Tasmania
Approx Cost: $20

I don’t mind the Bay of Fires sparkling wines so I picked this up on a bit of a whim. Not sure why, since the Bay of Fires sparklings I’ve had so far weren’t great and rose sparklings always underwhelm. But I have it now so I may as well taste it.

Light copper pink in colour. Fine mousse and medium bead which lasts well. Palate of mandarin, green apple, citrus and mushrooms. Light and crisp tasting, with a decent length.

As with the other Bay of Fires wines, it’s good but far from great.
