Memorial Day Rose Under $25

Memorial Day weekend is the official kickoff to Rose season and we here at NYC Tastes have been doing plenty of research on this fabulous pink drink.  Sparkling or still, dry or sweet, there's a rose on the market perfect for just about any palate.  Here's a few of our favorites for your weekend festivities all under $25.00.

Camille Braun Cremant D'Alsace Brut Rose- $22.00
This beautiful bubbly from the Alsace region of France is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes aged in stainless steel.  It pours a pale pink with tight, tiny bubbles and gentle flavors of strawberry and raspberry with a soft creamy finish. This is the perfect apertif for any occasion.

Gouguenheim Malbec Bubbles Extra Brut Rose- $12.00
This Argentinian sparkler comes from the foothills of the Andes Mountains at Gouguenheim Winery.  It's crisp and juicy with bright flavors of cherry, strawberry and rhubarb.  It's refreshing enough to drink alone but also the perfect pairing for grilled meats.

Montonale Rosa Di Notte Chiaretto Rosato- $20.00
The aroma of fresh cut roses and luminous pink hues of this rose will delight even the most discerning Memorial Day guest.  It's floral, fruity and pairs best with fried fish and fresh vegetables. 

Cantele Negromaro Rosato- $15.00
The Negromaro grape is the star of this wine from Southern Italy; known best for its dark skin which gives the wine a deep ruby red color.  The nose could be mistaken for Campari while flavors of dried fruit and fresh sage definitely make this the most savory rose on our list.  Pair with a hearty cheese fondue to close out the evening in style.

And remember, you can never have enough Rose. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
