A Love Letter to Rosé
I discovered Uproot Wines, a California wine maker that launched last year, at a recent party in Soho. The bottles, boasting Pantone-like labels, were so chic, and their rosé, of which I had several glasses, was perfectly dry, but with a bright, tangy finish. Their signature rainbow strip is what Uproot calls a "flavor palette" and allows even the most uneducated wine consumer to understand the flavors of each bottle before tasting. For example, their rosé boasts notes heavy on Maraschino cherries and strawberries with hints of rose, watermelon and pink lemonade. How's that for impressing your wine aficionado friends?
Next up is Wolffer Estates' second vintage of Dry Rosé Ciders, which are quickly becoming beach cooler staples for any East Coaster in the know. The Hamptons-based vineyard (where those who frequent spend lazy sunsets sipping vino and listening to live music) added red grape skins to their classic hard ciders, turning them slightly pink and adding just the right amount of summertime sweetness. Add a screw top to the display-worthy bottles to create a grab-and-go four-pack and you've got day drinking at the beach on lock.
