If you agree, say cheers and raise a glass of one of these beautiful rosés!
Natura- This Chilean rose is quite striking and bright with intense fruit forward aromas of strawberries, cherries, and raspberry. On the palate it is dry with lingering raspberry, blackberry, and spice with a nice crisp finish. I am a fan of Natura due to the organic practices, vibrant aromas, and present fruit notes. Pair this wine with shrimp scampi or a baked brie! $10-15.00
Cvne Viña Real Rosado– This fun Spanish wine is 85% Viura and 15%
Tempranillo with six hours of maturation which allows the grape skins to add their color but not take away from this beautiful, elegant, and fruit forward wine. Just a touch of coral color, with a nose of rose petals and red fruit! Pair this wine poolside or enjoy as an aperitif. $12.99-14.00
