I know, I know, I’m not supposed to describe rosé as pretty, feminine, or heaven forbid, girly. If for no other reason, because I want to help break the boundaries on this maligned category of wine. There's no reason we all can't #roséallday or proudly order a bottle for the table to pair with a delicious meal given the level of quality and range available on the market today.
But you know what, this rosé truly is beautiful, nearly poetic, and yup, I’m going to say it, somewhat feminine. I come from the world of classical ballet, where the interplay between expression, technique, strength, and delicacy, are what create a moment of magic. Elegance, beauty, and artistry come together to take you out of your daily grind and into a more beautiful world - the same way they do in a Chopin nocturne or a Monet landscape painting. When twenty-four women move and breathe as one unit, adorned in pink tulle and satin pointe shoes, the audience holds its breath at the mesmerizing beauty of it all.
So, at the risk of furthering a stereotype and distancing those who would rather pass on the pink stuff, truth be told, this elegant rosé is pure poetry and I can’t wait for you to try it.
Pink satin in color, with aromas and flavors of strawberry, grapefruit, and tangerine, this wine has a sophisticated creamy texture and lingering acidity that take it from a mere smile on your face to a “close your eyes and take a deep breath” kind of moment.
Pairs perfectly with:
~ Homemade crab cakes
~ Cucumber, watermelon, and feta salad
~ Strawberry, avocado, and chicken salad
~ Pink grapefruit and avocado salad
~ Grilled peach and burrata salad
~ Nicoise salad with seared tuna
