The summer might be coming to a close but we can still say Yes Way, Rose! And that’s exactly what I did with a recent appearance on Fox32 Chicago on Labor Day. You can check out the video below and here are my rose picks to help you bid farewell to summer and say hello to fall!
Crios Rose of Malbec, Argentina $14 - I know there are a lot of fans of Malbec out there but did you know it also makes a delicious rose? Dry with notes of raspberries, violets and juicy tart cherries.
Nortico, Vinho Regional Minho Dry Rosé, Portugal $16 - perhaps when you think of Portugal you think of sweet fortified Port but did you know Portugal makes mostly dry wines? This delightful rose made from indigenous grapes will transport you to Lisbon!
Josh Cellars, Rose, California $12 - made from a proprietary blend of California-grown varietals. Lush and fruit forward but still dry with notes of watermelon, strawberries and dried rose petals. Perfect with grilled foods.
Fleur de Prairie Rose, Cotes de Provence $15 - “Fleurs de Prairie” translates as “wildflowers,” celebrating the beautiful fields of wisteria, lavender, poppy, and sunflowers carpeting Provence. It comes in a beautiful bottle that is engraved with flowers as well. Made from mostly Grenache, it’s everything you want from a rose.
