Pink bubbles: Cloudy Bay and Gentle Folk

pink fizz

Two bottles of pink fizz that went down well. The Cloudy Bay was a real surprise: encountered on a couple of occasions and really delicious.

Gentle Folk ‘Pink Fizz’ Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pet Nat 2016 Adelaide Hills. Australia
Powerful and funky. Cloudy pale pink with tangy apple, cherry and raspberry, and some spicy phenolic notes. There’s some sour cherry here too. Really intense and appley with a spicy finish. Tastes like a sour beer and it’s quite compelling. 89/100

cloudy bay pelorus rose

Cloudy Bay Pelorus Rosé NV Marlborough, New Zealand
Pink with a hint of orange. Lovely red cherry fruit with a twist of cranberry. Nice citrus characters, too. Really fruity and well balanced with a bit of spice on the finish. 90/100
