Rosé

The time for rosé is now, as they continue to gain in popularity. Never have there been so many great options and styles to choose from, a far cry from when rosé wines were considered to be one dimensional in the market place. This year’s lineup featured rosés from around the globe with an interesting mix of old and new world wineries. There was a strong selection of rosés to taste this year with each wine showing some great characteristics and subtle nuances that we have come to expect and appreciate in this wine style. Wines this year ranged from dry to off dry, with many having a great balance of acid, minerality and fruit. James Werner
