Sea O2 had me excited from the moment I picked up the glass. Wow. Strawberries and rose petals (rosé petals?) fresh herbs, and a hint of salinity waft into my nose. Tasting it, more fresh strawberry, pomegranate and citrus do a bouncy dance in the appealing bubbles and fizz. Balance? There’s good acidity with just enough of the brioche/yeast aspect of good sparklers to soften the edges.
Whether you’re celebrating or relaxing after a long day, things will look better with a glass of this happy making wine. One of the most exciting new sparkling wines of 2018 at a very reasonable price.
