Roig Boig is Catalan for “crazy red”, but with a beautiful dark pink hue and only 10% alcohol, we’re going with funky winter sparkling rosé. Toni Carbó started Celler La Salada in 2012, on his family’s estate calcareous clay soils, which ring with life; they’ve farmed sustainably for generations, completely untouched by chemicals. Carbó’s 2016 Roig Boig – a co-fermented blend of 10 red and white native varietals, bottled fermented then capped to preserve the natural bubbles – is clean, fresh and lightly sparkling, with tart acidity, spring water minerality, and floral berry fruit. Easy, fun and so crushable.
