Wines of the Week
We recommend the following wines for your pleasure as the warmer weather approaches or at any time of the year. Each week throughout the Summer, we will feature two additional Rose' wines plus a white or a red.
ST. MICHAEL-EPPAN PINOT GRIGIO a product of Northeast Italy, land of the Italian style Pinot Grigio: light-bodied, crisp, and dry. Fermented in stainless-steel tanks to guarantee freshness, this wine exhibits aromas and flavors of pear and apple, with a hint of mineral. Pair with lighter foods: salads, fish/seafood/chicken dishes.
JOSH CELLARS ROSE' CALIFORNIA. Many of you are already familiar and very pleased with the Josh line of wines by Joe Carr, who travels between the Cape, where he lives, and California. Here is his version of Rose' (89% Barbera, 6 Muscat, 5 Syrah), light-bodied, fresh, dry, with aromas and flavors of strawberry, peach, and citrus. Serve as an aperitif and with lighter foods.
Mi Mi ROSE' from the Provence area of France; a blend of Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah. It is typically dry and crisp, with hints of strawberry and peach. Serve as an aperitif or with salads and lighter foods. Another Rose' wine we have that blends Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah, is Estandon, also from the Provence area, a best-seller for the last three years.
