Why is rosé so hot right now?
The “rosé rush,” as I like to call it, began about six to eight years ago and never looked back. Still, a lot of people associate it with summertime, so that’s why you currently see it on every Instagram pic. it doesn’t hurt that the phrase “rosé all day” is just fun to say.
What should you look for in a rosé?
Color will give you an indication of the flavor density. Darker rosés tend to have more pronounced fruit and a bit more sugar. If you are practicing “rosé all day,” go for a lighter one. When it comes to vintage, the newest is traditionally the freshest. So for example, this summer of 2018, the 2017 rosés are drinking the freshest.
What’s the best way to drink rosé?
I can only speak for myself here, but I tend to enjoy rosé with an ice cube or two outdoors, with my family and friends over a game of bocce, watching the sunset. A great idea for a larger party is to make a rosé punch. It will stretch your dollar and you can add anything you like to suit your personal taste.
