Spring is in the air, we may have just moved out of the Pesach season, but Shavuos and summer will be here before you can bat an eye. Well what does this mean for us wine drinkers? Do wines discriminate between seasons and are there specific wines, which are better suited for the warmer seasons?
For a few years already, rosé (pink) wines have been the hot trend on the American wine market. What is the big deal? Rose is not only the perfect thirst quencher for the upcoming days of sunshine, it is extremely food friendly and the perfect quaffer for a BBQ or a personal favorite, a picnic on the beach. This pink wine is not a joke as some may see it. There is no requirement for a good wine to be red, bold, high in alcohol content or full of oaky flavors. On the contrary, seasoned wine drinkers will often profess to enjoy white and Rosé's wines more than they enjoy heavy red wines. The most important piece to the wine puzzle is to be open-minded and try new things. Ask your friends or follow recommendations you read about, but more importantly, get rid of all your preconceived notions about what wine should be and get out there and try new things! Try to understand and decipher the different flavors and aromas wafting in that glass. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you have been missing in those bottles all along.
