The Wonderful World of Rosés

Posted April 18th, 2010 | 0 Comments

A lot of people think of Mateus when they think rosés. Mateus is the wildly popular sweet, lightly fizzy rosé which was created and targeted specifically to the North American palette, and for many, that will always be the preferred choice. After all it was the favorite for rosé drinkers from the 1950's well into the 80's. However if a sweet wine isn't for you, there are other choices. Things have come back around to the demand of a dry rosé which seems to be changing even the minds of those who scoffed at the thought of drinking it at all. In fact, a couple of years ago, the volume of sales even outnumbered that of white wines in France and the demand for dry Rosés in North America have sky rocketed.

 

There has been much talk of the rosé the last few years and for good reason. Rosés are often under rated and don't get the credit they deserve. There are many reasons to choose rosés. For example, a great bottle of rosé can be found for a very reasonable price. They are a younger wine best enjoyed now without years of aging. But perhaps most exciting for any food lover is that rosés pair very well with a wide variety of foods from prawns to goat cheese to chicken, spicy chorizo and fish and BBQ is a perfect match for a dry rosé. 

 

Spring and Summer are absolutely the time of year to sit back with all of the wonderful things a rosé has to offer. Refreshing, versatile and very drinkable have all the makings of a warm weather hit. And the new generation of rosés are just that.
