Wine Blogging Wednesday #80: Dry Rosé: Pushpin 2012 Grenache

We flat out love rosés, especially dry rosés. If I could drink only one wine for the rest of my life, it would be a dry rosé. They seem to go with everything, yet stand on their own really well.

Dry rosés seem to be popping up everywhere, an explosion in demand and availability, with dry rosés showing up everywhere you turn (and we're happy for that!). This wine, the Pushpin 2012 Grenache Rosé, comes from The Winery Exchange, which develops private label wines, beers and spirits for retailers around the world, developed the Pushpin rosé label specifically for Whole Foods.

Pushpin 2012 Grenache Rosé

This Grenache is a Vin de Pays d'Oc Languedoc-Roussillon, light and easy to drink. Light coral feathering out to an orange edge; red grapefruit and red berry aromas; watermelon and honeydew into tart strawberry flavors; crisp acidity; pleasant mouthfeel into biting finish. Not an over the top wine, but more delicate, dry, and light. You can't go wrong with this. SRP $12

    1. Amanda, since it's a WF wine, hopefully you can find it in MD! We got it on sale for $9 this weekend.
