We have an unbelievably long and cold winter, followed by a wet and sometimes way too long lasting spring. But now, summer has finally arrived, and nothing in the wine world better signals the arrival of summer than rose’!
When we speak of rose’, we generally mean the drier, more European style, pinkish-hued wines. Historically, pink wines were predominantly dry, until the White Zinfandel craze of the 1980s made pink synonymous with overly sweet in the mind of many wine drinkers. Dry style rose’ has been making a comeback over the past decade or so, and it really hit full steam over only the past few years.
Wine drinkers have come to realize dry rose’ is one of the most versatile, food friendly, and just overall enjoyable wines on the market, especially when the temperature rises!
The newest vintage of rose’ wines have almost all arrived, but we are firm believers that if a rose’ is well made, drinking a one or two vintage old rose’ is just as good, and even sometimes better, than drinking the freshest vintage.
Marketview Liquor has a broad and varied selection of dry rose’, from the Finger Lakes to Portugal, France to California, Spain to Oregon, and anywhere in between.
This is but a small selection of dry rose’ from the 2013 and 2012 vintages.
