I am a huge fan of rosé, especially on hot summer day. Here are a few of my go-to rosé for summer.
Vintjs Pinot Noir Rosé Monterey
Vintjs is such a great buy at Trader Jo, $9.99. This rosé is a deep pink, dry wine, with aromas and flavors of fresh raspberries and strawberries, a rich mouth feel and a clean, and elegant finish rosé. Best paried with grilled salmon or roast chicken, a frittata, and eggplant.
J.L. Quinson Côtes de Provence Rosé
Côtes de Provence Rosé is another brand I usually buy at Trader Jo, $7.99. I like my rosé dry and this wine is consistently dry but offers a muted acidity and bright berry notes; even hints of melon and rose petals. Best paried with grilled chicken, pork, and shellfish.
Jacoulet Parallèle 45 Rosé
This wine is sometimes available at Trader Jo, and the price is around $17.99. A fresh and mineral driven rosé with floral notes of wild berries, white pepper, and cherries. Best paired with salads, goat’s cheese, and grilled vegetables.
La Vieille Ferme Rosé
La Vieille Ferme a such a light and cheap rosé when I am not in the mood for a full body rosé, and I just want something light to sip on. You can find this brand at most grocery stores and it is usually on sale, $7.99. I usually don’t pair with anything but drink it alone but you can pair it with fish, pork, and mussles.
Charles Smith ViNO Rosé
I have to say I first picked this wine cause I like the bottle, but ViNO is such a light and easy going dry rosé that offers an aromas of rose petals, camellias, tangerine, marjoram, wetstone and cut hay. Best paried with meat and oily fish. Price ranges from $11-13.
Lastly, I love this fun brand, Yes Way Rosé. They have fun tees, totes, hats, and other accesssories that will help you showcase your love for rosé. Follow them here @yeswayrose. (cover photo courtesy of Yes Way Rosé)
