Origins and Details: Let's all say a big "thank you" to France for providing us with our favorite summer wine, Rosé. Whether you drink it for the color, the taste, or the Instagram opportunity, we can all agree that Rosé is as fun to sip as it is to look at.
How it's made: You'll be surprised to know that it may be the oldest known type of wine. Don't be fooled, it is not created by mixing red wine with white. In fact, it is illegal in France to mix the two to create Rosé. It actually gets its pink hue from contact with red grape skins during fermentation. It is created all over the world from a wide variety of red wine grapes.
Ours Comes From: Malibu, CA
Tasting Notes: Elegant kisses of cherry blossom and vanilla romance the nose, soft strawberry and nectarine embrace a hint of brioche on the finish.
Alcohol Content: 13.5%
Pairs Well With: Just about anything! We're taking a hint from the Italians and sipping it with this Melon and Prosciutto Salad with Parmigiano - Reggiano from Big Oven. Yum!
