Three Rosés We Love this Spring

Nothing says warm weather like sitting outside and sipping rosé. Check out the video below to hear some of Astor Center instructor Tess Rose Lampert’s favorite wines for spring and summer! If you’d like to learn even more you can join Tess at Astor Center for a seminar during Astor Center’s Rosé Day! Click here for more information. 

Côtes de Provence Rosé “MiP”, Dom. Sainte Lucie – 2014

A stunningly pale, floral-perfumed rosé that offers absolutely everything you could want in a dry pink wine: freshness, a near-weightless mouthfeel, and tangy white berry flavors.

Txakolina Rosado “Rubentis,” Ameztoi – 2014

This is truly thirst quenching rosé. A Txakoli rosé, you say? Why yes. Made from the same grapes as Txakoli in the tiny Basque region, this wine shows bright acidity, with hints of rose petals, red candied fruits, and fresh strawberries.

Shinn Estate Rosé – 2014

This off-dry rosé has floral aromas and flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and watermelon rind. Expressive and tantalizing, this is a full, assertive style of rosé, ideal for grilled fare, turkey or salmon burgers, and even wings! Shinn Estate rosé is composed of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and the juice is macerated on the skins for a full 24 hours before being pressed off, leaving a deep pink color and a bold style of wine.
