pondering the possibilities

Since the theme of my birthday party is one of rosé wine tasting and understanding its intricacies, it only seemed appropriate to have a connoisseur visit and tell us a bit about selecting the right rosé wine for any and every occasion. So I’ve partnered up with Dalla Terra to bring you some tips and tricks on choosing something fit for you and perfect in every way.

tip one

Select a bottle that is from the current vintage.
This is because Rosé, especially during this time of the year,
needs to retain freshness.

tip two

Off-dry rosé is sweeter and chances are those are below 11-12% alcohol level.
Perfect for when you’re just having a glass of wine without food.

tip three

When it comes to rosé, since they’re quite economical,
it’s best to try a few options to see what works best for you.
Experimentation is key and is always fun!

tip four

The deeper the pink hue the more body and complex the wine is.
Blush, or Vin Gris, are the palest in color and those are the ones
that do not go through pre-fermentation. So it’s important to look
at the color. If you’re more of a red wine fan, go with a darker pink.

tip five

Understand grape variety. South of France rosé wines are blend from
different grapes. Today, your local shop may even supply rosés made
from grapes like Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Malbec.
