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!

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 Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015 Product #31145 (In Stock)
Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015 Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015

A blend of 40% Grenache - bled from red wine tanks - plus 30% direct press Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.  The texture is the real story here, round and plush and mouthfilling but still light and fresh.  You'll love it right now as a late-Summer refresher, but hold on to some for end-of-year feasts and even for Summer 2017 - because this will just get better with time!

"Pale orange. Aromas of orange zest, strawberry and white flowers show very good clarity and a subtle mineral element. Juicy and focused, offering ripe strawberry and tangerine flavors that put on weight with aeration. Fleshy, focused and dry on the penetrating finish, which shows good, nervy cut and minerally persistence."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

"Editors Choice! Coming from a remote estate on the edge of the Lubéron mountains in the north of Provence, this wine is impressively rich. It gains great concentration and structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in the blend. Full of ripe red fruits, it is dense at the end."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Rose 2015 Product #31077 (In Stock)
Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Rose 2015 Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Rose 2015

The energy, tangy cherry fruit and crushed  herb freshness that makes Chinon's Cabernet Franc such a great all-around "bistro red" works even better in this vibrant rose that will charm and delight you.  Fabrice Gasnier has transformed his family's Loire Valley estate by converting to certified biodynamic farming and then doing as little as possible to his grapes in the winery.

This is 100% Cabernet Franc from younger vines growing on Chinon's gravely, Loire riverside, vineyards.  After a brief stay on the skins, it's pressed into tank and allowed to finish low and slow with 5-6 months on the lees. In 2015, the fruit is huge and ripe - busting with bold ripe red and Bing cherry with squirt of ripe strawberry for good measure.  Spicy crushed herb, savory tobacco, and a twist of black pepper give the fruit plenty of verve and complexity on the mouthwatering finish.  Fun to drink on its own and better still with cheeses, salads, and grilled poultry.

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

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.
