ROSE 2014, Anton Bauer (AT)
From the Anton Bauer estate located in Fleuersbrunn, Austria, this wine is a blend of the juices of 3 different red wines, Merlot, Syrah, and Weigelt. The Rose has a lovely pale rose color and the bouquet is floral with hints of citrus. It is a pretty wine that is dry, soft and easy to drink with gentle flavors of cherries and strawberries. Perfect with fruit platters and good conversation with friends.
PINOT NOIR ROSE 2015, Matua (NZ)
This Rose is made from 100% Pinot Noir grown in the Matua Valley of New Zealand. Light rose in color, the bouquet has nice strawberry and floral aromas. It is dry and well balanced with good fruit and has quite a bit of muscle from the alcohol. A nice clean finish. This Rose will be a good choice for a dinner wine.
