Rosé wine and me!

I honestly LOVE exploring Rosé wines…. but I suppose that’s no secret. I’ve even created a Facebook Community Page called The Pink Tank – where me and wine friends share reviews on our favourite rosé wines, it’s meant to be fun and unpretentious.

Check out some favourites I’ve had…

An all-time favourite from France! Cave de Lugny Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Rosé is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. This beautiful wine is made in the ‘traditional method’ – which means made just like champagnes are made. It’s fresh red berries, but dry and refreshing.

Seriously one of the most wine-geek rosé wines I’ve found. Bodega Txakoli Rezabal Rosé is made from 100% Hondarrabi Beltza, a local grape variety found in the Basque region in Northern Spain. These wines are light in body and alc. making them so delightful. And they have a slight frizzante so they are usually poured from high above the glass.

A lovely find – Stoneboat Vineyards is in the South Okanagan Valley in BC, Canada. Their Faux Pas Rosé is made with 100% Pinot Noir. Think rhubarb, strawberries and a lovely freshness on this wine. And if you are ever in the area – they have a quaint tasting room on a popular wine route, so don’t miss this it!

Rosé season – and they are so many styles to explore!! So try the off-dry or fruit forward ones with spicy salamis and the dry ones with crab, salads, roast chicken and seafood. Have fun exploring all the wine regions of the world and the rosé wines they make at different prices to see how many you enjoy.

Drink Pink!
