It’s that time again where we embrace the crisp weather and tasty wine!
Join us this October as we celebrate all things “rose.” These three featured wines are each delicious, affordable and should not be missed.
Bread and Butter Rose 2020
A refreshing Rosé with generous notes of fresh strawberry, melon and rose petals. Juicy red fruit flavors are complemented by bright acidity and a rich, lively finish. Goes well with prosciutto and Brie grilled cheese, pasta salad and impromptu picnics in the park. At Bread & Butter, they believe good things shouldn't be complicated. Good things should just be good, honest and simple. And the same goes for our wine. They make good, honest, delicious wines meant to be simply enjoyed. They know that a good bottle of wine is an easy, thoughtful thing in a world that’s usually neither. So, if life doesn't suddenly get easier (and it won’t), they are here to help you. All you need to do is pour a glass, sit down and don’t overthink it. As their award-winning veteran Winemaker Linda Trotta says, “A good wine is a wine you like.” It’s time to leave the complexity to us and cheers with our classically-styled wines. $15.99
Hahn Rose of Pinot Noir 2020
Since 1980, the Hahn family has cultivated their hillside vineyards in Monterey County. Today, Hahn wines represent the family’s commitment to craft rich, supple wines which over deliver on quality yet are perfect for everyday enjoyment. Grapes for this wine are estate grown in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. A hidden gem, located below the Santa Lucia Highlands, these vineyards sit on a gravelly alluvial plain with rocky soils fostering excellent drainage. Cool winds channeling South from Monterey Bay through the Salinas Valley ensure gradual ripening, full development of vibrant fruit flavors and bright acidity.
Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked and gently whole cluster pressed. This wine is slowly fermented at cold temperatures to preserve beautiful fruit aromatics and restrict malolactic fermentation from progressing. Racked after primary fermentation, the wine is aged in stainless steel prior to bottling.
Pale salmon in color, this dry Rosé offers delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry and watermelon and notes of fresh floral rose. The palate brings vibrant acidity, flavors of raspberry and watermelon with undertones of minerality that lead to a pleasant dry finish. Excellent food pairings suggested are pan seared salmon or strawberry and arugula salad with creamy goat cheese. $10.99
Veuve du Vernay Ice Rose
This is a lovely sparkling wine produced and bottled in France. Delightful! It is light pink in color with purple reflections. The Ice Rose has a fine effervescence with the bubbles forming a light bead. It has a fresh nose of red fruits and raspberry. Drink it on ice and share with friends. On the palate, there is a balance between the fruity freshness, the effervescence and roundness. $13.99
