6 Rosés To Kick Off Spring

6 rosés to kick off spring

If we were writing this post last year, we probably would have lead with something like “Our favorite time of year is here!” or “Suns out, rosés out!”, but I think by now we’ve all decided that rosé can and should be enjoyed year round (Martha Stewart is on board). Even better news – the 2017 vintages are here and Lane 2 is head-to-toe pink. Don’t know where to begin? Our wine experts have selected six 2017 rosés they’re pretty excited about.

2017 MAISON NOIR LOVE DRUNK ROSÉ
Oregon Was $18.98 | NOW $16.98

“The 2017 Love Drunk is an intoxicating rosé. Much like new love, it clouds the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise, and lips to pucker. Provocative aromas of strawberry and raspberry, followed by refreshing flavors of wild strawberry, watermelon rind, and a hint of kiwi.” – Maison Noir Wines

Wine style: Chardonnay/Pinot Noir
Wine style: Crisp and dry
Pair with: Salmon burgers or watermelon with feta and mint

2017 RODNEY STRONG ROSÉ OF PINOT NOIR
Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California Was $23.98 | NOW $19.98

“The beautifully colored fresh and vibrant Rosé of Pinot Noir has aromas and flavors of strawberry, white peach and jasmine. Brilliant and bright with fresh acidity and a wonderful lasting juicy finish.” – Rodney Strong Vineyards

2017 DAY OWL ROSÉ
California Was $14.98 | NOW $11.98

“Barbera is the primary varietal in Day Owl Rosé. Like the best things in life, this Italian varietal is meant to be enjoyed young (aka now), so seize the moment. Bright, citrusy, and effortlessly cool, this versatile wine pairs perfectly with whatever the day throws at it. Day Owl Rosé radiates with floral red fruit and vibrant orange zest vibes. Lively acidity and a dry, elegant finish make for a bold bottle as alluring as the day is long.” – Day Owl

2017 MULDERBOSCH CABERNET SAUVIGNON ROSÉ
South Africa Was $13.98 | NOW $11.98

“It’s hard not to feel excited by the appearance of the 2017 Mulderbosch Rosé. It’s very much alive and energised. The colour is lighter and brighter than previous vintages. An attractive confected cherry note greets the nose, followed by subtle rose petal aromatics and a crisp mineral note that holds it all together nicely. Due to careful selection of vineyard sites and gentle fruit handling in the cellar the palate has an effortless poise about it. Sweet-fruited Cabernet flavours and early-picked natural acidity make for an intense palate that refreshes with each sip.” – Mulderbosch Vineyards

Wine style: Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine style: Rich and fruity
Pair with: Barbecue and for drinking with spicy food such as curries
