Have a Glass of Wine to Celebrate National Rosé Day June 3, 2019

Downtown Lincoln, Lincoln
Have a Glass of Wine to Celebrate National Rosé Day, Lincoln, Nebraska

People often like to celebrate the big and small victories in life with a glass of wine—either in the comfort of their own home or at the bar with friends. On June 8, National Rosé Day, honor the drink itself. The guide below describes different kinds of rosé wines to consider sampling.

3 Flavors of Rosé

1. White Zinfandel

This bold type is made from the Zinfandel grape and offers a lighter-bodied flavor than a cabernet sauvignon or merlot. While made from red grapes, it is processed like white wine, allowing it to maintain a distinct taste with more sweetness. The primary flavors of white zinfandel vary, ranging from jam and blueberry to cranberry and licorice. It goes exceptionally well with proteins like bacon or lamb, spices like ginger and garlic, vegetables like roasted peppers and onions with a hard, rich cheese like manchego.

2. Pink Moscato

barComprised mainly of Muscat grapes and occasionally some merlot, pink Moscato has a ruby-pink color with a touch of sweet fruits like strawberries, peach, and melon. This wine is considered refreshing and fragrant, making it ideal for warm-weather happy hours and parties. When pairing food with a pink Moscato wine, opt for light plates and bar food like antipasto, soft cheeses, and desserts.  

3. Grenache

Made with the Grenache variety of grape, this wine is undoubtedly fruity but can have hints of licorice, flowers, nuts, and spice as well. With deep raspberry or wild strawberry notes, this wine has medium alcohol and low acidity. Grenache pairs best with hearty proteins and dishes, such as beef, veal, pork, or a cassoulet, which will help balance out the powerful flavors of this wine.
