Josef Bauer Joe's Rose 2015 Product #30897 (In Stock)
Josef Bauer Joe's Rose 2015 Josef Bauer Joe's Rose 2015

A joyful, delicious, rosé that benefits from Josef Bauer’s very own “secret sauce.” While Austria is still best known in the USA for juicy, peppery, whites made from Riesling or Grüner Veltliner, regions like the Wagram can produce red wines every bit as fine as the whites.  And, where fine red and outstanding white wines grow, why not rosé too!

Joesef Bauer starts his rosé with a big dollop of Austria’s own Zweigelt grape, lightly pressing it to get pale pink juicy redolent of crushed cherries, berry blossom and more.  Then, a 20% or so dose of Cabernet rosé gives the wine some freshness and structure and adds a refreshing bundle of dried herb.  Last, a small vineyard of “Merlot” (that’s what Joe ordered and what the box from the nursery said!) gives the wine a big dose of fresh strawberry and a round, almost creamy, texture more commonly found in Grenache-based wines from Provence.  There’s a bit more cherry fruit and berry blossom aromatics here than in most Provençal wines, and plenty of juicy, fresh, crisp refreshment.

Netzl Rosanna Rose Carnuntum 2015 Product #30644 (In Stock)
Netzl Rosanna Rose Carnuntum 2015 Netzl Rosanna Rose Carnuntum 2015

Christiana Netzl made Austria's red wine of the year for 2015 (the captivating Cuvee Anna Christina 2013 blend of Blaufrankisch and Cabernet Sauvignon), but that didn't distract her from growing some pretty amazing grapes for rosé! This delicious Provencal taste-alike is a blend of Merlot (for herb and spice) and Austria's own Zweigelt (for juicy fruit and fun!), all harvested and pressed just for rosé.

The Carnuntum region shares Provence's warm days courtesy of the warm breeze blowing in daily from the central Eurasia plain, but gets a nightly dose of cool air from the Danube River to the north.  Hot and cool equals a fine fruit and acid balance here in a wine that pumps out generous cherry, red berry and red plum fruit aromas and flavors with a just right whiff of Merlot's vibrant herb.  Generous flavors of strawberry and watermelon shine on the long, dry, but frankly fruity finish.  Serve up some schnitzel!

Dom De La Mordoree Cotes-du-Rhone Rose La Dame Rousse 2015 Product #30751 (In Stock)
Dom De La Mordoree Cotes-du-Rhone Rose La Dame Rousse 2015 Dom De La Mordoree Cotes-du-Rhone Rose La Dame Rousse 2015

As Wine Advocate said in their review of the 2011, this is “one of those few rosés that has the ability to instantly transport you to a seaside village, overlooking the Mediterranean, on a gorgeous summer day.”

In 2015, it opens with seductive aromas of ripe strawberries and soft herbs like tarragon, and a musky hint of melon.  Take a sip and this delicious rosé explodes in your mouth like an electrocuted watermelon, with big flavors of strawberry, rose petal, and more pumping on through the juicy, refreshing, finish.  A touch lighter and more vibrant than the Tavel, it’s a fabulous rosé for sipping by itself or to have with bolder summer dishes like barbecued chicken or ribs or salmon on the grill with plenty of char. And that beautiful color, a deep, almost magenta-tinged pink, just adds to the experience.

"Another terrific Rosé, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone Rose la Dame Rousse is similar to the Tavel la Dame Rousse, yet is slightly more fresh and focused. Wild strawberries, citrus, mineral and underbrush all emerge from this layered, elegant, gorgeously balanced Rosé that has the freshness to stand on its own, yet the richness and complexity to go perfectly at the dinner table. Drink it over the coming year or so."Wine Advocate 91 points

J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2015 Product #30626 (In Stock)
J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2015 J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2015

From the Western Loire Valley appellation of Fiefs Vendeens, this ripe and juicy blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Negrette is even more fun in the stellar 2015 vintage.  Ripe aromas of crushed cherry and watermelon and a touch of fresh herb lead the way to a big mouthful of cherry/berry fruit and a fresh, juicy, mouthwatering finish.  Lip-smacking and fun to smell, drink and just admire – especially in the throw-back old-school bottle.  Great stuff to sip or enjoy with any spring or summer meal.

Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2015 Product #31025 (In Stock)
Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2015 Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2015

A blend of 90% Mourvedre – the earthy black grape made famous in Bandol to the south – plus 10% Grenache grown in stone covered vineyards near the Rhone village of Cairanne.  The ripe fruit is crushed and allowed to ferment on the skins long enough to get rich, deep, color and then pressed off to finish fermenting to dryness in tank.

The brilliant color is deep watermelon red with brick orange highlights.  There’s an earthy, savory, bass note to the dark cherry, ripe watermelon, and luxurious strawberry fruit aromas and flavors with plenty of classic Provençal garrigue (wild thyme, rosemary and lavender) accents.  Bigger and much more deeply flavored and textured on the palate than Grenache-dominant rosés, this has the hearty heft you normally have to go to much more expensive Bandol to find.  But a twist of orange peel and citrusy acids keep the flavors fresh and bright and the long, dry, herb and watermelon-laced finish keep you coming back for more.  Sure, it will quench your thirst nicely on a hot afternoon, but this powerful pink will really sing when you pair it with meaty grilled fish, herb-crusted lamb, or charred vegetables seasoned with a dollop of garlicy aioli.

Steindorfer Passion Rose Burgenland 2015 Product #30975 (In Stock)
Steindorfer Passion Rose Burgenland 2015 Steindorfer Passion Rose Burgenland 2015

You’ve never tasted a rosé just like this, but once you try it, you’ll be back for more and more.  Ernst and Roland Steindorfer craft this uniquely delicious wine from a mix of Burgenland’s very best red grapes:  Blaufränkisch (for spicy dark fruit), St. Laurent (for freshness and a touch of herb), and Zweigelt (for juicy red and blue fruit).  Created for the Villa Vita Panonia resort to showcase Burgenland’s heritage and potential, we managed to get the Steindorfers to share a little of this beauty with us for you!

The color is stunning, a pale watermelon pink with just a touch of blood orange highlight.  It smells a bit like a summery strawberry patch, with notes of leafy herb and ripe berry accented by hints of orange peel and peach.  Take a sip and the flavors just explode on your palate, with layers and layers of intense strawberry, crushed cherry, watermelon, and orange zest given lift and freshness by accents of tangy berry juicy and a bit of bite from zesty orange peel and cranberry notes.  All of that makes this sound like a pretty pink from Provence, and it does nod in that direction, but there’s something uniquely delicious here too.  A winner for hot weather sipping, cookout and picnic partying, and enjoying right on through late summer and beyond.

Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2015 Product #30664 (In Stock)
Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2015 Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2015

Simply the best rosé we’ll offer this year, this is the kind of rosé that will delight fans and convert pink wine skeptics – and, in this year, it will show you just why we’re all so excited about France’s magnificent 2015 vintage.  Valentine is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault from 30 year-old vines in certified organic vineyards just a few miles inland from Saint Tropez that offers both classic Provençal freshness and enough heft and body for amazing versatility at table. 

The color of this wine is a showstopper – such a delicate, shimmering, pale pink that it’s hard to believe there could be any weight or flavor at all.  Give it a sniff, though, and you’ll start to smile as you enjoy the generous aromas of spring strawberries, cherries, tangerine, spice and Provençal herb.  Take a sip, and your eyes will widen as this pale pink beauty fills your mouth with a rich, creamy, textured explosion of ripe currant, cherry, and lemon/lime fruit with savory accents of white pepper and crushed herb.  And, as the dry, mineral-laced, finish makes your mouth water, you’ll do the only reasonable thing – grab the glass for yet another sip.  Enjoy this all summer, but be sure to get enough to drink with Thanksgiving turkey and enjoy all winter long.

"A blend of Grenache and Cinsault, this wine comes from old vines in an estate revived in 1997 by Gilles Pons and Pascale Massenot. It's all about aromatic fruit, with grapefruit, pineapple and red currants playing in the flavors. A rich element contrasts pleasurably with the tight, crisp acidity. The wine will benefit from a few more months aging, so wait until the end of 2016."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Dom Du Tix Rose Les Restanques 2015 Product #30799 (In Stock)
Dom Du Tix Rose Les Restanques 2015 Dom Du Tix Rose Les Restanques 2015

The name “les Restanques” honors the old stone walls running up and down Mount Ventoux that create terraces where the Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah that make up this stunning pink wine soak up warm sunshine in the day and then chill down quickly as cold air flows down the mountainside at night. 

Pour it, and you’ll think, “THIS is what Provencal rose is supposed to look like!” – a brilliantly clear and shimmeringly pale rose petal pink.  It’s a bit floral on the generous nose, too - peach blossom and just-opened rose flower with peach skin, strawberry and herb all weave in and out here.  On the palate it's vivid and fresh and bursting with zesty flavors of strawberry, tart cherry, peach and crushed flowers lifted by a seltzery minerality and bright acids.  You'll find a bit of extra breadth and amplitude from the warm 2015 vintage but love the dry, mouthwatering, finish that leaves peach, strawberry and crushed stone minerality – recalling the “Restanques” themselves! – lingering on.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2015 Product #30917 (In Stock)

Sancerre just might be the benchmark for rosé made from Pinot Noir, and this is certainly a benchmark Sancerre pink.  100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Chavignol, it serves up fresh sweet cherry and ripe strawberry fruit enlivened by a twist of lemon peel and herb.  Finishing pretty and fresh and nicely dry, this will be delicious with smoked salmon bites, mild paté, and just lounging in the sun.
