Wine Talk for June 2014
Sure, pink wine had a famously bad rap. But if you haven’t tried Rosé recently, it’s time to give it another shot. Here are three of our stewards’ favorites (+ a white for the skeptics) – no White Zinfandel, no syrupy sips, no boxes among them. You're going to wonder what you’ve been avoiding..
Joining the Ros´ renaissance? Start with this dry French wine.
Saint Aix Rosé
“If you think all pink wine is hurt-your-teeth sweet, this Rosé from Southern France is a persuasive counterpoint. Produced in Provence – a region famous for award-winning Rosés – this dry wine is crisp with a touch of minerality, along with flavors of mandarin orange, strawberry and spice. I call it summer in a bottle. Try it with anything garlicky, a favorite pairing in Provence.”
Dagny Hartmann, Lake City, WA Wine Steward

Juliette Dazzle Rosé

“This Rosé is one of the NW’s best-kept secrets. Made by Long Shadows, one of Walla Walla’s standout wineries, it’s produced in very limited quantities – which means you need to act fast to get your hands on a bottle. The rush is worth it. This Rosé is crisp, clean and acidic enough to balance the grapes’ sweetness. When my customers ask for the perfect wine to drink on a hot summer night, this is what I hand them."

Some of the best Rosés are produced close to home – like this Eastern Washington label.

Charles & Charles Rosé

“Collaborations often bring together the best of two worlds and this Rosé is no exception. Made by a pair of well-known WA winemakers, this blend is one of only three wines they produce and the focus shows. It’s crisp, clean and pops with flavors of strawberry and raspberry. Try serving it alongside grilled chicken or fish, barbecued veggies and light summer salads. Or pour it at your next BBQ and watch as even the manliest of men sneak another glass.”

Think Pinot Grigio is a bore? This Italian bottle is a mind-changer.

Cavit Pinot Grigio

“If any other wine has a reputation rivaling Rosé, it’s Pinot Grigio (and okay, maybe Merlot). Cloying sweetness and lack of complexity are among the most common criticisms, and they’re not always unfair. That’s what I love about this Italian Pinot Grigio. It’s dry, with refreshing acidity, slight effervescence and flavors of citrus and green apple. This character makes it a great match with seafood, chicken or your favorite grilled foods. Bring on summer.”
