The summer heat is upon us, which means it’s time and past time for rosé. A good rosé is palatable even when chilled, and this one does not disappoint. The Columbus Wine Review speaks of “suggestions of caramel behind the wild herbs and dried strawberry aromas” but says the wine has the “austerity of a serious rosé.” Doesn’t that sound fabulous?
I noted a hard-candy perfume and plenty of strawberry flavors. It’s a very dry wine, which makes it especially refreshing. All this for only about $10.00!
The final gift is its delicate peach color, like the gem called morganite.
I love rosés 🙂 …but, I must confess, I’ve a weakness for sweet, bubbly ones…
*crawls back under her plebby rock*
I’ll never say no to a bubbly, even if it’s sweet! I’ve also been known to drink sparkling reds 😉
OK then… I won’t tell anyone if you won’t 😉
Very pretty, great price point! I am more of a fan of the drier stuff but I think, whatever floats your boat is fab! Over here we get some banging dry sparkling reds. Sipping stars, yes please. (On a greedy note, wouldn’t mind a ring made out of that morganite..just saying…)
Oh yes, I have to admit that I covet big gorgeous gemstones. Of course I can’t afford them, but I have a monster lab ruby that I adore, and a nice blue topaz the size of a kalamata olive;) I’m particularly fond of pink gems.

Thank you! I shy away from the Rose because of the sweet, but this isn’t! ? Lovely. Have a great weekend, Ms.Moss- Ret
Oh yes, there are many dry rosés that would knock your knickers off. Anything from Tavel in Provence ought to do the trick. Those are my favorites!
What a lovely review. I can both smell and taste it, so I am on the look out. The Rosé got such a bad rap years ago that it still struggles, I think. Leaves more for the rest of us though. 😉 Boy, that really sounds nice for a light meal and a warm evening.
Thanks! I don’t know why rosé took such a hit. Was it because of “white zinfandel” and “blush wines”? I suppose they have led many a person to try wine who would otherwise have rejected it. That’s about all I can say for them! But real rosés are my favorite wines after sauv blanc.
Yes, you guessed it. I can enjoy some blush wines, but I avoid white Zins. I love a good Sauv Blanc also, especially in summer.
Great review and captivating feature
Thanks for sharing,
Best wishes, Aquileana 😀
Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by!
I am totally smitten with rosés currently, and apparently the wine world is as well. They seem to be sweeping the shelves and wild with possibility.
I worked in a winery for a year, and we were always experimenting with two variations on sparkling and still. It was a marvelous adventure and I’m so excited to see this beautiful resurgence.
Ten bucks? I’m in. Thanks for the recommendation. I shall begin the hunt.
Hope you find and enjoy it 🙂 You worked in a winery? How full of surprises you are! I’m rather envious.
And a distillery – that one tops the charts (all those handsome Scotsmen in kilts!).
Ooooh. Excuse me while I wipe away the drool…
