Raise a Glass of Rosé To Summer!
Rosés are all the rage this summer, and why not? They’re chilled, they’re light, they’re sweet, and make the perfect front porch companion on a hot summer evening. The only question is, which one should you drink?
Well, unlike some of the simplistic rosés of old, winemakers have heard your call and are now creating some delightfully complex and well-balanced rosés like:
The Ame du Vin
As the featured wine at Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chefs of 2017,” the Ame du Vin is a French rosé that’s grown and produced at the Caves du Commandeur estate near the historic Provencale village Montfort-sur-Argens.
Forty Ounce Rosé
Want to make the wine snob in your family blush? Pour them a glass of Forty Ounce Rosé and then show them the 40 oz. malt liquor bottle it comes in, they’ll be floored they actually liked it!
Who would’ve thought you could balance the flavor of cantaloupe, watermelon Jolly Rancher, and rose petals to create one of the year’s best rosés (88 points in Wine Enthusiast)?
Want an all-American superstar? Try the Elouan Rosé. As the first rosé released by former California winemaker Joseph Wagner, this wine effortlessly blends flavors from Oregon’s top wine regions: Umpqua, Willamette, and Rogue Valley.
Falesco Vitiano Rosato
Almost red in color, the Vitiano Rosato sports light florals, red berries, honeysuckle, a creamy mouthfeel, and a tart finish. Perfect for those looking for something less sweet.
