Just Fine Wine and Winexpert are excited to announce the return of the tremendously popular limited release rosé: SELECTION Italian Pink Pinot Grigio. This Pinot Grigio is TICKLED PINK and ready for Summer sipping. Off-dry, crisp and light-bodied with a pale salmon pink hue, this wine presents light apple, pear, floral and tropical fruit aromas that accompany delightful strawberry and rhubarb flavours. Only a limited quantity of this fantastic varietal will be produced and you can reserve yours at Just Fine Wine now until it’s gone – which won’t take long!
Each Spring, Winexpert releases a “short run” rosé and the demand for these wines has been steadily increasing as wine lovers discover the quality and versatility of blushes. This fact coupled with the incredible popularity of Pinot Grigio meant that we were certain that this wine was destined to sell out quickly last year…and it did. Italian Pink Pinot Grigio created exceptional demand and was has proven to be our most popular limited release blush ever. Don’t miss out – reserve your batch(es) today! SELECTION Italian Pink Pinot Grigio will be available at Just Fine Wine beginning February 13, 2019 for a limited time only. Ready in only 6-8 weeks and producing 23L (approximately thirty 750ml bottles) of finished wine, SELECTION Italian Pink Pinot Grigio is priced at $185 On-Premise or $130 Kit-Only.
The STYLE: Rosé wine has begun to come into its own in recent years and has become a serious style of wine unto itself. Rosés most often offer a lighter, brighter, sunnier take on your favourite red-wine grapes. Like the California Sauvignon Blanc Rosé offered in 2016 & 2017, this year’s release is based on a grape that is most often associated with white wine! Either way, rosés aren’t just for novice wine drinkers. Today’s rosés will please the palate of even the most discerning wine aficionado. Lip-smacking fruit and mouth-watering acidity, lightly chilled rosé wines are versatile and food-friendly.
