Meet Our Summer Rosés
Summertime means it’s officially rosé season, and Red Pump Kitchen is here to break down all the ins and outs of your favorite hot-weather wine. We love serving rosé at the table because of its versatility – rosé complements so many different flavors that, when everyone’s ordering a different dish, a bottle of rosé will satisfy all.
Red Pump Kitchen’s Wine Director TC Whysall has curated an all-star lineup of rosés that vary in flavor, texture, and color, because there is a rosé for everybody. So get ready to #RoséAllDay with these four summer rosés.
Fossil Point Rosé
2017 | Central Coast, California
Our driest rosé and the lightest in color, Fossil Point rosé is perfect for red-wine drinkers who are looking for a refreshing summer wine. Grenache and Syrah, two grapes that produce powerful reds, give this wine its body and savoriness. Taste flavors of passion fruit, citrus, and ripe peach.
Pair with: Margherita Pizzette
Pippin Hill Rosé
2017 | Virginia
Floral and fruity, Pippin Hill’s rosé is one of the vineyard’s most popular summertime wines. This rosé is not sweet but slightly dry. Look for aromas of strawberry, rose, and peach and a palate of white nectarine and tart raspberry.
Pair with: Seasonal Burrata
Isabel Mondavi Rosé
2017 | California
With bright fruit flavors and a bright pink color, Isabel Mondavi rosé is fit for a princess. The sweetheart of the bunch, it’s the perfect introduction for new wine drinkers. Note flavors of strawberry, cranberry and ripe pear with a crisp, acidic finish.
Pair with: Seared Salmon
Scarpetta Timido Spumante Brut Rosé
7th Edition | Friuli, Italy
Glera, Pinot Negro
Scarpetta’s deep plum-colored sparkling rosé will bring life (and bubbles!) to any party. Glera grapes, typically used to make prosecco, give this rich and dry Italian wine a pop. This sparkling rosé may be dark in hue from the Pinot Negro, but you’ll find flavors of berries and a touch of herbs.
Pair with: Local Greens
Next time you sit down for dinner, select one of these versatile chilled rosés to complement your dish. No matter what you’re ordering, you can’t go wrong with these light and fruity wines.
