Come on out of hibernation with crisp and vibrant wines that are guaranteed to shake off the cobwebs. Whether you’re working with a dazzling sunny day or a veritable downpour, sip on something off this list for a taste of a sultry summer to come.
90+ Cellars Sparkling Rosé
The perfect pink spumante for reuniting with friends — it’s super affordable if you’re playing host, and there’s something for all palates to enjoy. One part disco watermelon, one part girl-next-door, both the color and aromas are alluringly fresh and festive. Start things off as an aperitif or make a whole party of this sparkler’s ample ripe melon, strawberry, citrus, and buoyant bubbles.
Domaine de Pouy
God bless Gascony, the Southern powerhouse of crisp French whites (and Armagnac!). These wines often seem to vibrate with fresh acidity, aromatics, and minerality, and Domaine de Pouy is no exception. Lavish sun-kissed green pear skin and mineral aromas are rounded out on the palate with crunchy granny smith apple, lemongrass, zippy lime and a squeeze of tangerine on the finish. Are you drooling yet, Sauv Blanc lovers?
90+ Cellars Rosé
From the Languedoc, Provence’s less snooty twin. For those ever seeking a dry rosé, this one brings the perfect balance of acid and minerality, with subtle strawberry fruit keeping things from getting too austere. With bonus notes of just-ripe melon, strawberry blossom, sea spritz, and a hint of nectarine, get a good chill on it and this bottle is porch ready!
