The Bubble Shack Fesstivity Brut Rosé 2014: Fesstivity should be the clue — this sparkling is an effort of Fess Parker family siblings Ashley Parker-Snider (executive vice president) and Eli Parker (currently director of vineyard operations). With more than 600 acres to tap, there’s plenty of vineyard to manage, and luckily some of the best led to this wine, as it’s sourced from pinot noir grown in the Rio Vista Vineyard of the Sta. Rita Hills.
The lovely salmon color hints at the dominant pink grapefruit character that’s rounded out with some deeper berry, all held in a fine acid grip — Fesstive, indeed.
Break it out for the next celebration, or drink alongside some grilled king salmon drizzled with a citrus compound butter, and you’ll have your own celebration.
