As the summer winds down, it’s time to say good bye to white wine drinking…at least for me that is. I always prefer a red over a white wine, but in the summer I do drink a lot more whites. It is so refreshing on a hot summer day to open up an inviting crisp, clean white wine! I only drink dry whites so I lean towards, Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigios and Rosés.
This post is all about Rosés! I’ve listed three that I’ve tried in the last couple of months. If you have a favorite Rosé, tell me about it. I’ll put it on my list for next summer, cheers! 😉
2016 Ferrari-Carano Sangiovese Rosé-This by far was my favorite out of the three. A very lovely dry Rosé. Salmon color, inviting aromas and flavors of strawberries, raspberries, watermelon and cranberries. Crisp wine with a smooth finish. And if you get a chance, visit this winery, they have picture perfect grounds!
2016 Marlene Rosé-Central Coast. Lightly hued. A melon/strawberry nose with a hint of lime. Nice fruit and floral flavors. I will definitely buy this one again. Easy to drink, very refreshing.
2015 Wente Pinot Noir Rosé-I was pleasantly surprised with this Rosé! I didn’t know what to expect as it is a Pinot Noir Rosé. Nice dry rosé, just how I like them. Very light in taste, a soft strawberry color. The raspberry is what really jumped out for me but also has some nice pear and floral notes.
I hope you are all enjoying the end of your summer! And for all you Australians out there, cheers to the beginning of your summer. Enjoy!
