WOODINVILLE, WASH — Nothing pairs better than warm summer days and rosé wines. Our friends at 425 Magazine put out a helpful guide to Washington made rosés in their June issue. They shared a few of their top pink picks with us over at the Barking Frog in Woodinville.
"Rosé is the quintessential summer beverage because it has lots of high acid. The high acid cleanses your palate and makes you feel refreshed. It should be literally mouthwatering." Said Food & Wine writer, Julie Arnan.
Maryhill Rose of Sangiovese
“If you like your rosé a little bit on the sweeter side this Maryhill Sagovace is a really good option. It has a strawberry, rhubarb, watermelon taste. It's the wine you want to go drink on the patio."
"Another choice rosé on just the sweeter side is Julia's Dazzle which is produced by Long Shadows. This has a great orange blossom, strawberry with lushes’ racy acidity. This is the racy acidity you're looking for in a rosé."
Seven Hill Dry Rose
"This is a rosé of cab franc from Seven Hills out in Walla Walla. This has more nectarine and grapefruit. It has a little more of that pithy tannin that goes great to refresh your palate."
