The Roederer Estate Rosť is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. For color, the winemaker prepares a small portion of Pinot Noir with extended maceration and adds about five percent to the blend before secondary fermentation, imparting a subtle salmon hue. Both the 60/40 blend and addition of the small amount of red wine create a charming wine of discreet finesse.

The Roederer Estate Rosť is full and round with smooth flavors and a fine, persistent mousse. The extra measure of Chardonnay contributes elegance and austerity that balance nicely with the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir.

Reviews:

"Expressive and festive, backed by good structure. Aromas of strawberry and ginger bread lead to crisp, plush red apple and spice flavors." -Rated 90, Wine Spectator

"There's lovely precision to the light strawberry notes in this wine, a clean parallel to its pale pink color. The finish is spicy and gentle, with a creamy undercurrent that lingers on fruit. Chill it for prawns." -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
