Rare Rosés

rareroseThis Tuesday Tasting (May 28) we try three rosés from unique backgrounds and grapes. Featuring:

  • Skouras Zoe Rosé, Greece – This delicate blush made from native Greek grapes (Aghiorghitiko and Moscofilero) is harvested on the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece and benefits from the warm sea breezes: soft floral aromas of rose and jasmine are followed by ripe flavors of cherries, raspberry and a touch of sweet grass and chalk. $14 btl, $7 btg
  • Gonc Cuvee Anna, Slovenia – Named after the traditional Hungarian barrels made to age wine (“Goncs”) this family produces an elegant summer rose made of Žametna črnina (don’t worry, we won’t ask you to pronounce it!), from one of the oldest living vines in the world (est 375 yrs old); the result is a beautiful summer sipper tasting of melon, strawberry and peach with a hint of citrus zest. $16 btl, $7 btg
  • Latue Rosé, Spain – This bright organic blush from central Spain (La Mancha) is made from 100% Tempranillo and walks the line between a rosé and light summer red – bursting with red currant flavors, raspberry, and a touch of orange zest and ending with a clean, minerally finish. $12 btl, $6 btg

Tasting: $11
