Yes, I know - original, right? How many items have you come across with that very tag line - Rose All Day! Well, maybe "Wine In The Summertime" too! Happy Wednesday love! Hope you are having a great week, and welcome to those hump day vibes! Are you ready to WINE down? After all, it is Wednesday, and it is time to showcase another one of my favorite vinos. It is, totally, Fit4Janine, and it comes in my signature color too! Plus, when it already feels like the dog days of Summer in June, talk about a refreshing treat come happy hour, or even a boozy, yet classy, lunch!
Wine In the Summertime: Rose All Day!
I will probably sound like a broken record every week BUT, I will repeat - I am by no means a wine connoisseur and, therefore, I am leaving all the technical talk to the professionals. Yes, I may be a connoisseur of drinking wine but the vino jargon I have not yet mastered!
Today, I am chatting about 2 lovely rose's that are the perfect FIT for these warm Summer months, and pair beautifully with just about anything. Well, at least I think so!
Whispering Angel & The Palm are both from the Chateau d’Esclans collection - located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty five kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast (courtesy of https://esclans.com). Generally speaking, the Cotes de Provence region!
While there are a handful in the collection, these are the 2 I have had, and I keep enjoying more and more! Whispering Angel, which has become one of the great roses has been in my rolodex for some time BUT "The Palm by Whispering Angel" was brand new to me last year. And isn't that label just fabulous too?!?! A more affordable option but, none the less, just as AMAZING!
So, without further adieu, and just like I said last week, I am going to leave the specifics to the experts! Instead, I will just sit back and enjoy my "wine in the summertime." Why is so HOT AND HUMID in Baltimore this week?
Whispering Angel (2019) - The rewarding taste profile is full and lush while being bone dry with a smooth finish. Highly approachable and enjoyable with a broad range of cuisine, Whispering Angel is a premium Rosé that you can drink from mid-day to midnight (courtesy of http://www.wine.com).
The Palm by Whispering Angel (2019) - This authentic rosé from Provence operates as a playful, trendy, energetic “little sister” to Whispering Angel. The Palm is expressive both inside and out as it shows great aromatic freshness on the nose followed by more subtle, fruity notes on the palate. The colorful and playful label has been called “almost as perfect as the rosé itself”. Signed and approved by Whispering Angel (courtesy of http://www.wine.com). Blend: 89% Grenache, 7% Cinsault, 4% Syrah
Seriously, is it Happy Hour yet? Ah, cheers to it being mid-week! I wish I could toast you right now, and not have to go back to work!
Have a fabulous day! And, as always, drink responsibly!
