Happy Moms Day!

Tis the season to drink pink! For all you folks in need of something for your Mother I suggest a bouquet of Rosés! The 2018 pinks are coming right now, they are fresh and beautiful. The Rosé category has been growing in popularity in the U.S.A. for 25 years now.

We are not talking about White Zinfandels (although they are also Rosés) but the dry to slightly sweet (also called off-dry) wines that are European classics and now seem to come from every wine region on the planet. We love the French wines listed below because they have mastered the art of making rosés. These are refreshing, tasty and aromatic stunners, great with salads, grilled fish and chicken or simply patio sippin’. It’s all in the maceration time. Red Grapes for reds and Rosés.

All the pigments for grapes are in the skins and when you ferment a red grape with the juice in contact with the skins the wine will take on some color, so maceration is fermenting the whole berries not just fermenting the juice.  If the juice is on the skins for more than a couple days, you’ll have a red wine. If the juice is in contact with the skin for 12 to 30 hours a nice pink wine result. After a short period of maceration, the juice is removed from skin contact and finished off like a white wine. We have Rosés in stock made from Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Grenache, Sangiovese and many other grape varietals. Mix some up for Mom or yourself.

Cheers! -Bill the Wine Guy

A soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant.
