In the August case of One Dozen Rosés you will find…

 

Vieni Momenti Rose Sparkling

Vieni Estates Momenti Extra Dry Rosé

$16.95
20 Valley (Niagara)
1 bottle

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: If this wine could speak, it would say “let’s party!”. Bright cream soda like colour, crisp with tastes of cherry & cranberry wrapped up with a whiff of fresh bread. The refreshing acidity is delicious, while the mousse & fine bubbles make this a great crowd pleasing wine.

Food Pairing Suggestions: Here is a fun (not to mention eye catching) hors d’oeuvre to serve at your next party – Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. If you are not a fan of jalapenos, try bacon wrapped scallops or put out a charcuterie plate with this bubbly.

 

2014_WHITE_GAMY_0Aure White Gamay VQA 2014

$13.95

While called White Gamay, it is strictly speaking, a white wine made from a red grapes. The Gamay Noir grapes are the signature varietal originating from the Beaujolais appellation in France. It is traditionally a deep ruby-red hued wine so, naturally, when vinifying this wine with very limited skin contact, some of that pink hue comes through into the juice during the winemaking process. Take a sip and you’ll find all the qualities of a ripe Gamay grape without the tannins. Dry and crisp, it is a delicious summer sipping wine.

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: Alluring aromas of ripe wild strawberries, cherry and a touch of lemon grass loom from the glass. Expressions of strawberry, pink grapefruit and lemon zest come through more on the palate, ending with a crisp refreshing finish.

Suggested Food Pairings: Quite versatile! This wine makes for a terrific pairing with a summer salad. Try it with strawberry topped Greek salads, or simply enjoy as a plain ol’ 2 o’clock patio wine.

 

 

Casa Dea Cabernet Franc Rose 2013 Casa-Dea Cabernet Franc Rosé VQA 2014

$15.95
Prince Edward County

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: Crafted using Cabernet Franc grapes and giving just enough skin contact to give a beautiful cotton candy pink hue. Fresh raspberries & red currants waft from the glass with the raspberry taste continues as you sip. In true fashion with wines made with Prince Edward County grapes there is a minerality about the wine that is laced with acidity.

Food Pairing Suggestions: It is tomato season! If you grow them in your backyard, you’re probably looking for different recipes to use up your never ending crop. This wine would be delicious with this easy Leek & Tomato Tart. Other food pairings for this wine would include kale salad, grilled salmon or even steamed mussels.

 

 

Devils Wishbone Pinot Gris Rosé VQA 2013

$20.00
Prince Edward County

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: This light salmon coloured wine is a gem. “Each sip says summer”, commented Patti when she sampled this wine. Reminders of fresh juicy peaches, apricots, and even crunchy roadside apples with a hint of straw. There is a medium acidity that makes this wine a joy to drink. 

Food Pairing Suggestions: “It’s a 3 o’clock Rosé”, says Savvy Sommelier Eva. Sipping this wine mid-afternoon sounds perfect! On its own, with a picnic or a delicious fish dish such as Perch with Strawberry Salsa.

 

Greenlane Rosé VQA 2013

$15.95
20 Valley (Niagara)

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: Summertime in a glass! Refreshing notes of strawberry & rhubarb…but not tart. This wine is dry, crisp with a light sweetness. Smooth custard like mouthfeel, it is a delicious & well balanced wine.

Food Pairing Suggestions: when pairing with food, it is good to accentuate the dominant flavour – in this case rhubarb. Make your favorite rhubarb dish like the Rhubarb Salad we have in the Rosé Recipe Box on the following pages. If you rather accentuate the strawberry taste serve with the Perch with Strawberry Salsa.

 

Vieni Alleria Rose WineVieni Alleria 2012

$13.95
20 Valley, Niagara
1 bottle

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: An interesting blend of Riesling & Pinot Noir, this light salmon wine has subtle floral notes with a dash of white pepper. With your first sip, you’ll remark on the vibrancy of acidity that will either quench your thirst or smooth out when you enjoy with food.

Food Pairing Suggestions: this is definitely a picnic wine. Easy drinking, especially perfect for those who are white wine lovers, this wine would be delicious with hummus, tabbouleh, green salads or smoke salmon. Simply, chill, sip & enjoy.

 

Vineland Rose The Game Changer 2014Vineland The Game Changer VQA 2014

$16.95
Vineland, Niagara

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: A blend of 80% Cabernet Franc with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon this pretty salmon colour has bright refreshing acidity, floral & berry aromas that continue into the taste. There’s a base of minerality that makes this medium bodied rosé so delicious. Imagine if they took the same grapes and let them sit on the skins long (with the juice) the remarkable red wine that could be created.

Food Pairing Suggestions: our friend Chef Brad Long shares in our Rosé Recipe Box his Fast Poaching Lil Fish recipe which would hit top marks with this wine. If fish is not your forte, then try with light dishes like prosciutto & asparagus, lemon roasted chicken, corn chowder…or a summer salad.


One Dozen Rosés is only available during the summer!

In July’s case of One Dozen Rosés you will find…

Huff Cuvee-JanineHuff Estates Cuvée Janine Sparkling

$25.00
Prince Edward County

Winemaker Frederic Picard is true to his French roots when making wines at Huff Estates.  Raised amongst the vineyards and wineries in Burgundy France, this man has wine running through his veins.  Both of the selected wines from Huff are great examples of how Frederic lends his winemaking talent (nurtured in France, South Africa & other parts of the world) to craft elegant wines in Prince Edward County.

A special price on this Bubbly! We were delighted when the team at Huff Estates offered us an extra special price (regular $30) so we could include this bubbly in this month’s assortment.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Everything about this wine exudes fun – the colour, the refreshing dry tastes and all of the possibilities for food pairings.  Made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes, the wine is made using the classic French Méthode Champagnoise that is aptly named for the winemaking technique for Champagne. The second fermentation (that creates the bubbles) happens in each individual bottle.

A vibrant cranberry coloured bubbly with a lovely nose of red fruit, a touch of mineral and a hint of sweet citrus (pink grapefruit or blood orange). Very dry and medium bodied, it’s juicy and refreshing with tastes of red cherries, berries and tangy cranberries that play through garnished by a lively touch of white pepper on the finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions:  Put in your fridge for any occasion (we do!) – a beautiful sunset, friends dropping by or why not begin a long weekend with the popping of its cork!  In our Rosé Recipe Box, we share with you a stunning looking (and delicious) Gorgonzola and Strawberry Canapé that is easy to make. Chill & enjoy every sip of this sparkling wine.


Huff Rose 2013Huff Estates Ros
é VQA 2013

$19.00
Prince Edward County

This is one of Huff’s signature wines. Rosé lovers clamour for it every year.

Sommeliers Tasting Notes: Lively, this refreshing wine is bone dry with a light pink hue that resembles classic Rosé wines from Tavel, France. In two words: pink grapefruit.  Added to that, light floral notes with citrus (think lime and mandarin) to create a well-crafted refreshing balance. Made with 100% Cabernet Franc grapes grown in The County, there is the regional characteristic minerality & crisp acidity that makes this a class act wine. Now that you’ve been tipped off about this wine, you’ll be on the lookout for it each year. Always a solid wine.

Food Pairing suggestions: Serve chilled on its own to unwind, with sushi or pack for a picnic.  In our Rosé Recipe Box, we have included the Smoked Salmon Sushi Pizza recipe to make for your next picnic.


Di Profio Gamay Rose 2013
DiProfio Gamay Rosé

$15.70
Niagara-on-the-Lake
This boutique winery has a growing reputation for making outstanding wines. Sandwiched between the 20 Valley region and Niagara-on-the-Lake, this is definitely worth the stop…and they have a wonderful B&B on the estate!

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: A stunning colour in the glass. Aromas of beets, candy floss, it smells sweeter than it is…in fact, it is deliciously dry. Each sip is loaded with tastes of red fruit (cherry, raspberry or strawberry perhaps). This Rosé has a nice refreshing acidity, a long berry finish. Bring on summer with this outstanding wine!

Suggested Food Pairing: Another one to pack for a picnic or serve on the dock. Chill & pack in your basket (no need for a corkscrew) to enjoy with tabbouleh, hummus, quinoa salad. In our Rosé Recipe Box, we have included a Chickpea, Barley & Feta Salad that will do the trick!

 

Kacaba Rebecca Rose 2014Kacaba Vineyard Rebecca Rosé VQA 2014

$14.95
Beamsville Bench (Niagara Escarpment)
Looking for great red wines made in Ontario? Kacaba is definitely one of our top picks. This year’s of rosé wine is made with 100% Gamay grapes grown on the estate, this is ‘not just another summer sipper’ states John Tummon, Kacaba’s winemaker. It is a wine to be enjoyed year round… before or during a meal.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Bright cotton candy pink colour. Concentrated aromas of fresh juicy red cherries, ripe red berries and cotton candy of course! These aromas continue into the taste with an added cranberry flavour to give it even more body. A smooth texture in your mouth, this bright and refreshing wine is so easy to enjoy.

Suggested Food Pairing: One definitely to serve during a meal – lunch or dinner. Chicken satay, grilled vegetable kebabs would be delicious. We also think that it would be perfectly paired with pan seared fish – such as the perch recipe that we’ve provided for you from Port Restaurant located in Pickering. The recipe is found in our Rosé Recipe Box. Enjoy!

 

Rosewood Trois Femmes Rose 2013Rosewood Trois Femmes Rosé VQA 2014

$15.00
Beamsville Bench (Niagara Escarpment)
From the family run winery and Ontario’s first Meadery, this year’s Rosé from Rosewood is 100% Pinot Noir grapes. The wine was made with the skins intact with the juice for 3-5 days then fermented until it reached the fruity flavours and the colour that the winemaker wanted to create.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: One word will describe this wine: STRAWBERRY. From its colour, the aroma and taste, this wine has the wonderful summery taste of fresh strawberries. “It has the zippiness of rhubarb too”, commented Savvy Sommelier Debbie during the Savvy Team tasting of 40+ Rosé wines. A very well-balanced, smooth wine that combines notes of strawberry tastes of watermelon and freshly crushed ripe berries – all things that are iconic about summer.

Suggested Food Pairing: This is a no fuss wine. It would be delicious with anything off the grill, seafood, homemade pizza, charcuterie and light meals. Try something completely different – Beet-zza! We will provide this cool new recipe in our Rosé Recipe Box.

 

Sue Ann Staff Fancy Farm Girl Foxy Pink 2013Sue-Ann Staff Foxy Pink VQA 2013

$17.00
Beamsville Bench (Niagara Escarpment)
This has been an amazing year for our friend Sue-Ann. In April, she decided to finish the chapter of her career where she was making wine at other wineries and focus 100% on her namesake winery – Sue-Ann Staff Estates. And the decision quickly paid off. Her new Fancy Farm Girl wine brand has won label design awards as well as accolades for her wines. This one is the Rosé in her portfolio. Be sure to read the back label to learn more about Sue-Ann’s style – a farm girl who loves to be a diva too!

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: The bright coral pink colour alludes to the style of this wine. Bright vivid aromas of watermelon, strawberry candy, even marshmallows leap from the glass. These aromas continue as you sip on this off-dry wine, then the bright zippy acidity will make your mouth water while prepping your palate for another sip and another.    Enjoy on its own with friends (or not!) or with sushi, tuna, salmon, pizzas, picnics, salads and soooo much more.

Suggested Food Pairing: Keep chilled in your fridge for when friends come over for a spontaneous get together. Call out for sushi or fire up the gill with some salmon steaks or better yet…get fancy with the Grilled Chicken & Strawberries with Balsamic. This simple recipe will be in our Rosé Recipe Box – stay tuned!


Creekside Cabernet Rose 2014Creekside Estates Cabernet Rosé VQA 2014

$14.95
Beamsville Bench (Niagara Escarpment)
Another great winery to visit when you take a summer getaway to wine country. Not only do they make lots of great wines, but their patio overlooking the vineyard is also worth stopping for.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Bright neon pink in colour with gorgeous aromas of wild strawberries, flowers& green apple that follows into the taste. This crowd-pleasing wine is juicy yet dry. Medium bodied and well balanced with refreshing acidity…it is summer in a glass.

Suggested Food Pairing: You can’t go wrong with this wine. The colour, the bouquet & the taste…they all will remind you of summer. This versatile wine can be served chilled on its own or with any of the creations in our Rosé Recipe Box. Be sure to have a batch of the Rosemary & White Bean Dip in the fridge at the cottage just in case you feel the urge coming on to crack open this bottle of wine as the sunsets.
