We all daydream of a never-ending summer... however fall and winter are here again. ;-)
The good news is, we have a solution to bring the sunshine during those rainy and cold days: Summer in a bottle, pink nectar of the gods… Rosé.
In this Blog we will present some delicious Rosés for your fall and winter Apero plus seasonal food pairing tips.
Let’s start with the Bodegas Gratias Rosé from Spain. This darker Rosé is full body and made with passion by the lovely family Gratias! It’s an artisanal production, all harvested by hand. A delicate creaminess, intense nose of red fruits, and a truly unique character make this one a great Rosé all year around. It’s a perfect Rosé for food pairing. Even hardcore red wine fans will fall in love with this delicious Rosado from Spain! Pairs perfectly with savory Roasts and Mushroom dishes.
Our next recommendation for Fall and Winter is the Château Favori Rosé. This fantastic Provence Rosé is the result of a meticulous grape selection and was harvested during cool temperatures between 4 and 6 o’clock in the morning. These are important quality details you can smell and taste! Featuring notes of spring flowers and delicate red fruits like strawberry, raspberry and cherry. In your mouth a frank and fresh attack, floral with elegant fruit flavors again and with some fine peppery tones. A Rosé with beautiful and deep structure. Bold enough for your Fall and Winter Apero and a great pairing for Ginger Bread and Christmas Cookies.
Definitely part of these recommendations must be the “Parle à mon fût Rosé” from Château d'Or et de Gueules. The fermentation for this characterful Rosé happens in French oak barrels with aging in concrete tanks. The result is a dynamic Rosé where you can't really taste the typical wood flavors due to the elegant processing. However, this Rosé has enough body from the flavorful Syrah grapes to accompany Goose or Duck dishes. A perfect wine to drink while enjoying a great meal and a must try for a true Rosé Fan.
A perfect pairing for Pumpkin Dishes or for German “Rinderroulade” with delicious “Rotkohl” is the Château Roubine Lion & Dragon Rosé. You will smell nuances of Red Berries and hints of oak, some lemon grass but also a bit of yellow stone fruit. Juicy and creamy texture yet still fresh. Every year this stand out Rosé earns fantastic ratings of 93+ Points from Falstaff magazine! It’s a delicious rarity and one of the few Provence Rosés that aged for 6 months in oak barrels. I would simply describe this Rosé with one word: WOW!
Our last but definitely not least recommendation here is the Château Sainte Roseline - Lampe de Méduse - Cru Classé Rosé. This Rosé, with its unique shape bottle is iconic. Since 1950, it has been the heart of the production of this famous Cru Classé vineyard. The complex and intense nose reveals fine notes of peaches and mangos. The beautiful liveliness and persistence of the aromatic notes at the end of the palate make this Rosé and perfect wine to remind you of warm and sunny summer days. But not just that… it’s a perfect wine to drink with soul warming soups like a classic chicken noodle soup or a spicy Japanese Ramen Soup.
Enjoy your Rosé All Year Around!
