One of my favorite things about summer is drinking rosé wine. Not blush wine. Blush wine is that syrupy, sweet wine that people, who don't really know about wine, drink. I am talking that dry but juicy beverage that helps ward away the heat of the summer.
I love rosé wine. I prefer them juicy with a lot of fruit lingering on the palette. I love anything from the Loire Valley of France. There are also some great ones from Spain. Lately, I have had some quite dry but thirst-quenching selections made from malbec. I love them so much that I actually purchase them for the house. As a matter of fact, as I type this entry, I am about to finish off a bottle of rosé d'Anjou. From the Loire Valley. Delicious.
If you haven't tried one yet, head over to your local wine shop and try a bottle. They tend to be quite inexpensive. Except with the dollar being as strong as wet toilet paper, prices have gone up a bit. May I suggest going to your local winebar to try something new? I would. I do. I love that I have three more months to do so. Yay, summer. Yay, rosé wine. Yay. Later.
