This summer I've had, by far, the best rosés ever. And really, there is no reason to stop enjoying them, but as the weather does get chillier, reds will definitely start to dominate the field.
Here are seven awesome rosés to enjoy as summer slips away.
Santa Margherita Spumante Rosé. Absolutely perfect sparkling rosé. Fun, light, fruity, and dry. This Italian bubbly is lovely at $25.
Simi 2017 Dry Rosé. A delicious mouthful of juicy goodness. Dry, ripe, juicy strawberry and raspberry notes. This California wine is a bargain at $18.
Bonterra Organic Vineyard’s 2017 Rosé is wonderful! This rosé has substantial flavors of strawberry with some melon and tropical notes. It has some slight frizzante which I found suited the wine beautifully. It has nice acid on the finish. Whether you’re shopping specifically for organic wines or not it’s the perfect complement to a late summer or early fall evening outdoors. This rosé is from California and retails at $16.
Minuty 2016 Rosé. Everything from the classic shape of the bottle to the salmon pink color of this rosé says elegance and the wine inside does not disappoint. This rosé has beautiful delicate flavors of red fruit and watermelon with a soft lovely finish. It's from France and retails at $18.
Mathilde Chapoutier 2017 Rosé Flavors of red fruit, watermelon and citrus blend seamlessly with excellent acid on the finish. Also, from France retailing at about $19.
Sanford 2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir. Dry. Strawberry, raspberry and watermelon. This easy, everyday rosé is from California and sells for just under $20.
Les Domaniales Rosé D’Anjou 2017. This French wine is semi-sweet and is a good choice for those transitioning from sweet rosés and blushes to dryer wines. Extremely refreshing. I saw Anjou and I thought pear, but this has much more ripe strawberries, raspberries and a little watermelon. Fabulous and fun at only $10.
