Pairing recommendation, courtesy of Leslee Miller, Certified Sommelier of Amusée: Cava Brut Rosé “Nu Allongé.” “Sparkling rosé is delicious with a watermelon salad, especially one with cured meat. The juicy notes of fresh strawberry, melon, and tangerine make this bubbly rosé from Penedès, Spain, a refreshing complement.”
