Springtime is when the new varietals are released, however, I like a refreshing rosé year-round. They pair beautifully with just about anything and they’re a great value buy — especially from my friends at H-E-B. Wine Manager Jamie Shamburger at the Montrose Market location shared three of her faves for right now…
Le Charmel Rosé
Depending on where they’re grown, the grapes used to make rosé take on a number of regional characteristics in their flavor profiles. This rosé is from Côtes de Provence in France. It’s dry with flavors of strawberry and bright cherry with a wonderful acidity on the finish.
An awesome presentation featuring a glass cork on this classic rosé, also of the Côtes de Provence region. Would make for a pretty Mother’s Day gift! Dry, crisp with excellent acidity, which helps with a wide variety of food pairings.
Kim Crawford Rosé
You know the name. This Hawke’s Bay Rosé by Kim Crawford is rosé of merlot. It’s creamy with a slightly deeper flavoring of strawberry and cherry. The finish is also nice and bright!
