Spring Rosé Wine Dinner | April 26th, 2013, 7pm

What: Spring Rosé Wine Dinner
When: April 26th, 2013 7pm
Where: Aroma Thyme Bistro, 165 Canal Street, Ellenville, NY 12428

Details: Rosé’s hot! And it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy them.

Please don’t confuse Rosé wines with White Zinfandels.  Rosé wines vary from dry to spicy and are great food wines.  Lots of red wine drinkers switch to Rosé Wines during the summer.

Rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale “onion”-skin orange to a vivid near purple, depending on the grape varieties used and winemaking techniques.

The aromas and flavor of Rosé’s are primarily influenced by the particular grape varieties used to produce the wine but the method of production also plays an important part. The light, fruity character of many Rosé’s come from volatile thiols that are found as flavor precursors in the grape skins.

Rosé, being a wine that is typically enjoyed in its youth, often gives us the first taste of the previous vintage — the first wine to emerge from fall’s fermentation and winter’s élevage to present its pretty pink self. It’s the very essence of rebirth and re-awakening; it gives the sense of tiny buds beginning to unfurl, picnic blankets being spread over tender blades of grass. Okay, you get it: Rosé in the springtime is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Five course wine and food pairing, $49 per person.
