Rosé Renaissance #93

Nothing like a hot sweltering day to make you wish you had something light and delicious to put between your lips.

While rosè wine made a comeback 5-7 years ago there are still myths surrounding it. Mistakenly portrayed as a “ladies who lunch” wine, like a white zinfandel or blush known for it’s sweet, over the top taste and pink color, rosè took a bashing for years. The reality is some of the best wines produced are Roses, they have a lower alcohol level allowing you to drink more and they are extremely versatile and meant to pair with many amazing dishes. This is a wine you shouldn’t ignore.

During this episode, we are going to share our favorite things about this beautiful pink drink and new ways you can enjoy it too!

Word of show is Rosè.

What wine is in our glasses?

In Debra’s Glass: JL Quinson * Rosé Côtes de Provence 2013
Imported by Latitude Wines – and $5 a bottle from Trader Joe’s! A dry rosé that tastes great with some gouda goat cheese, spicy nuts and apricots. A perfect wine for before dinner!

In Kelly’s Glass:
Gerard Bertrand * Cote Des Roses
It’s a light floral rosè with delectable grapefruit notes. I would pair this with fresh caught mahi mahi, well seasoned and grilled topped with a mouthwatering mango salsa.
