This Saturday, March 24, Wyatt’s is offering a free tasting featuring French Rosé wines for spring.
Rosé is considered the oldest known type of wine, dating as far back as 600 BC. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are highly versatile wines that complement many types of foods. They are lighter than red wine and deeper than white. Their pink color depends on the amount of time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice.
Rosés are ideal for warmer evenings and casual dinners with friends. Dry rosés, which have the acidity of white wine and the fruit character of red, pair particularly well with small plate fare and tapas like prosciutto and melon, asparagus, and quiches with mushrooms. Pork sausages right off the grill are terrific with rosés, as are grilled vegetables like peppers and zucchini.
This week’s selections include:
Wild Pig Syrah Rosé: This wine pours a deep brilliant red color. Blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, followed by a spicy mouthful of small red fruits. Firm structure and juicy finish. Pairs well with grilled sausages, tapas, or a local goat cheese gouda.
Terres de Galet Rosé: This harmonious Côtes du Rhône rosé offers floral aromas with hints of red fruit. On the palate, it is fresh, lively and fruity with a clean finish.
Rive Sud Pinot Noir Rosé: Herb and strawberry flavors shine through this rich, southern-feeling wine. It is ripe and smooth, with a bright, lively aftertaste.
Picard Sancerre Rosé: This wine opens with bright aromatic notes of exotic fruit and flowers. On the palate, the wine is dry, fruity, and supple with a full, balanced body. Wonderful with grilled meats and charcuterie cheeses.
Tasting hours for this free event on Saturday, March 24, 2018, will be from noon-4:45 pm, at Wyatt’s Outlaw Saloon, in the back of the store.
All of this week’s featured items will be on sale!
