I have seen Mateus wine before and never would pick it up, but this time around I spotted a bottle of sparkling brut rose and said what do I have to lose.  

Made from the Baga grape, this wine gives some nice fruit flavors with bright acidity.  The label says apple, pear and raspberry but I can tell you that I definitely taste the apple and raspberry.  Not bad, something that you can easily drink and enjoy.  A great party filler.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
