Love Rosé wine?! We’ve got you covered! Here’s all the reds we’ve sipped on! Have a fav you want to recommend? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
EP 1 – That Decade on Decade Type Love
According to Apothic’s website the Rosé has “layers of strawberry and watermelon with a hint of raspberry, for a refreshing wine that is light in color, yet dark in nature.” To put it bluntly, we’re not fans. Now normally Apothic is one of our FAV brands. We sip the red on the regular. But we just aren’t feeling the Rosé. You can blame it on us being primarily red wine drinkers to begin with!
EP 11 – The Ties That Bind Us
This Grapefruit Rosé is described as having a “youthful pink hue, [with] the beautiful grapefruit bouquet [that] jumps from the glass followed by a thirst-quenching explosion of juicy fruits with an elegant touch of sweetness and a refreshing grapefruit finish.” The consensus is that this would work good in a champagne or frozen with fruit. It’s more like a juice than a wine.
EP 219 – It’s Our Anniversary
We thought it would only be fitting to celebrate our one year anniversary the same way we started Season one – with a Rosé. This time we’re sipping on one of our favorite brands and we were actually pretty surprised that we enjoyed it (Sasha more than Shara). While we’re not big Rosé drinkers this one wasn’t too sweet and is a great summer wine. With tasting notes of “white peach and strawberry complemented by hints of nectarine” it’s definitely a light wine. Coming in at 12.5% ABV however, it’s not Sasha and Shara approved.
EP 223 – The Privilege of Choice
Finally, another Rose has made the list and it’s really for our listeners! We’ve had this brand before but you all know that Rose are few and far between in our rotation. Described as “a traditional, dry style that prizes bright acidity, mouth-filling texture and freshness…Aromas of strawberry and peach follow through to the palate and complement a round, medium-bodied mouth feel. The elegant structure bright acidity and light tannins contribute to a long, fresh, clean finish.” It’s pretty much a classic Rose. Sasha felt it was very tangy while Shara felt that it was soaked in strawberries. We never drink our whites and Roses the right way and Sasha thinks that this would taste much better if it was chilled with frozen strawberries. We both agreed it’s a brunch wine. And of course, it’s Sasha and Shara approved at 13.5% ABV.
EP 304 – “Super” First Born
In an effort to switch it up this season, we are adding a sangria to the lineup! And it’s Sasha and Shara approved at 13.9% ABV. This sangria is described as “a fruity wine that with every taste of this wine, you will get a tang of watermelon, pomegranate, grapes, pineapples, and oranges.” We both agreed that it’s very alcohol heavy and has some bubbly to it. Shara thinks it tastes like watermelon while Sasha doesn’t really taste it. Either way, neither one of us is fans.
