Domaine Santa Giulietta 2014 Rosé
The island of Corsica is home to many grape varieties which are very close cousins to other more well known varieties, though many of them produce much different wines. Domaine Santa Giulietta Rosé is made primarily from the Niellucciu grape, which is genetically identical to Italy’s famed Sangiovese. This rosé, however, is a truly unique wine. The colour is a beautiful bright pink with copper highlights. The nose of red fruits is fresh and intense, with spicy notes on the long, elegant finish.
Les Couversets 2013 Côtes de Provence Rosé
Côtes de Provence, France
A refreshing blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre, this rose sports a pretty salmon-pink color, elegant flavors of red berries, mineral notes and a clean finish. Pairs well with sushi, salads, and mild cheeses.
Mulderbosch 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé
Coastal Region, South Africa
A unique rosé made from the legendary Cabernet Sauvignon grape. These grapes are picked early and grown specifically for making rosé. The wine pours a delicate pink color with subtle salmon hues. An initial burst of ripe grapefruit aromas is followed by clean, mineral notes and hints of fresh strawberries. This is a great go-to wine for fresh garden BLTs and salads.
Charles & Charles 2014 Rosé
Columbia Valley, Washington
Another great vintage from Charles Smith and Charles Bieler, this wine is an outstanding value and delivers year after year.
“Vibrant pink with complex flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. A blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, and Cinsault. A touch of citrus on the finish cleanses the palate for the next sip.”
