Go on… ask me. Do we sell Rosé at Huff Estates? Golly! Do we ever! Not one, not two, nor three but four of ‘em. You could probably surmise that we’re stuck on that colour. Enamoured with the different hues and shades of Rosé wine, from onion skin to copper.
Let’s start with item one: our VQA 2019 Getaway Rose ($20.00). A bright, jazzy, tantalizingly tart Old World style specimen, sourced from County Cabernet Franc grapes. As well, available at selected LCBO stores (#63982)
Item 2 — VQA 2020 County Roads Pinot Noir Rose ($25.00). Call it your extra-dry summer splash in a glass. Vibrant cherry/berry freshness crafted in a crisp, tangy style.
Item 3 — Bring on the bubbles! VQA 2017 Cuvée Janine ($30.00). Frivolous pink fizz fashioned in the Methode Traditionnelle manner. 100 percent County Pinot Noir. Picture this…aromas of ripe strawberry, pomegranate, supported by cranberry bathed in red apple juice. Bellissimo!
Item 4 — For those of us on the go, for your convenience this spring and summer we now offer you our All Day Rose in slim can format (250 ml.) Price: 4 for $20.00 or $109.00 for a flat pack case of 24. It’s slightly off-dry. Sublime as picnic fare, on the beach, backyard BBQs, on your yacht.
Rose’s versatility is virtually unmatched at the table. May I suggest a number of pairings.
- Summer skewers:
- Calamari/ chorizo/ mint
- Tuna with coriander dressing
- Chicken zucchini/rosemary/ lemon
- Greek salad pitas with olive/ garlic tapenade
- Plate of grilled peach, arugula and prosciutto
- Grilled Portobello/goat cheese sandwich with green olive pesto
- Heirloom tomato and burrata salad.
Our stable of Huff Roses can be ordered online and at present picked up as curb-side service at the winery.
