Happy Hour: Angove Nine Vines Rosé

Recently I've been drinking a lot of Rosé. It's the perfect pour for when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. My favorite bottle comes from a Southern Australia vineyard called Anglove. Their Nine Vines Rosé is 70 percent Grenache and 30 percent Shiraz. It has a deep pink hue and somewhat musty clarity. The aroma is fruity and faintly floral. Hints of raspberry and cherry mingle with the spicy flavor of classic Australian Shiraz.

After the first sip, I realized this Rosé is addictive and delightfully easy to drink. Crisp, refreshing, and full-bodied, it's hard to believe a bottle retails for just $12. I enjoyed Nine Vines with a manchego pizza, but it would pair nicely with grilled fish, roasted poultry, or a hearty salad.

Do you sip Rosé? What's your current fav?

Ooooh a South Australian Rose. I am not usually a fan of wines from the Riverland but I might need to give this one a go!

The label on the bottle is 2008. I just want to point out - that is the correct year to be buying for Rose wines! You don't want anything older than 2 years at most for a rose.

I love Zinfandel Rose because it's so sweet. But my all-time favourite has to be Black Tower! mmmm...

I love Bri's Blush from Blue Mountain Vineyards. It is the most crisp and refreshing rose I've had!!

Yum! I love grenache, and rose to boot? Doesn't get any better. Pinot noir rose is a close second.
