When you think summertime you think of that precious pink drink that has become super popular among wine drinkers alike, rosé! Rosé is a great option for the hot summer weather. Whether you are on the water, on the beach or around the campfire, a bottle of the delicious pink wine can enhance any summer outing.
I've selected 2 different rosés that have different flavor profiles and made from different grape varietals.
The first rosé is from Left Foot Charley. This wine is the 2018 Blaufränkisch Rosé.
Dry but fruity, this rosé has been made with Blaufränkisch grapes. These grapes are traditionally found in Austria, but northern Michigan has a similar climate that allows these hearty grapes to flourish.
I paired this wine with a meat and cheese plate, but you would be surprised at how many different types of food this rosé could go with. BBQ, fish and spicy dishes would be ideal.
You can purchase this rosé from the Left Foot Charley website and ships to most states. You can also ask your local wine shop to order it for you, perhaps there are others who would enjoy this wine by discovering it in the store that orders it.
The second rosé is from a more widely known winery, St. Julian Winery. The wine is called Simply Pink.
Simply Pink is a semi-sweet rosé that has a fruity nature with a dry mouth feel and at the end lingers with a slight tartness. This wine would be perfect with salmon, BBQ and sipping on a beach somewhere.
There you have it! Two wonderfully amazing Michigan rosés for the summer of 2019! However you enjoy rosé is your decision, just as long as you actually enjoy it! Of course, as always, enjoy responsibly!
