The RoséWatch continues! As we mentioned last month, everyone is hopping on the rosé train, with no slowdown in sight. Here are a few of the latest rosés of note:
Bota Box Dry Rosé: For the eco-minded consumer. Bota Boxes are 100% recyclable and use BPA-free plastic. This is your typical refreshing, clean rosé with strawberry notes. Each box contains four bottles of wine and lasts for up to four weeks.
2015 Chloe Monterey County Rose: For a more nuanced rosé that’s crisp but still fruit forward, Chloe is the new rosé to keep an eye out for. As a Pinot Noir-based rosé, you’ll get an additional layer of raspberry on the palate in addition to the typical strawberry-watermelon notes of Provence-style rosés, which are usually Grenache-based.
Nine Pin Cidre Rosé: OK, technically it’s only part rosé, but it’s a cider made with rosé winemaking methods. This might also be the start of more cider-wine blends. The Nine Pin is a blend of Samascott Orchard apples, fermented alongside New York grapes. The grapes lend the cider a richer, fuller body and grape aromas.
