Rosé for Spring – Think Pink

By / Wine + Drinks / April 17th, 2014 / 3

Weather can dictate our palates. Cold winter nights beg for a deep warm red to keep us cozy while the warmer, longer days of summer welcome a cool sip of a chilled Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. So, it makes perfect sense that the beautiful colours of spring inspire us to think pink.

Review Summary:

Scents of cranberry, strawberry with a trace of apple open the way for soft, lightly ripe berry and red cherry fruit in the mouth backed by zesty crisp acidity and firm mineral. A charming Rosé with character.

Review Summary:

This watermelon coloured blend of Pinot Noir (53%), Pinot Meunier (25%), Gamay (12%) and Pinot Gris (10%) delivers a mouth-watering, off-dry style. Gushes with red berry aromas and flavours, speckled with spice notes. The light tannins on the finish add complexity. Stands up to spicy dishes.

Review Summary:

A fun and lively rosé with a zesty, vibrant, strawberry, and bright raspberry character and a juicy, citrusy finish. A great summer sipper and perfect match for barbecued salmon, grilled hot dogs, and lamb Carpaccio. A blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
