Domaine de Nizas Rosé 2011 PDF Print E-mail
Featured Wines - Roses

By Cory Sebastian of Sebastian's Fine Food & Spirits

Languedoc-Roussillon, France


This wine demonstrates the true expressions of Languedoc varietals in rosé and consists of true southern Rhône grapes: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre (GSM). Rhône-style rosés have the perfect color—not as dark as a cab or malbec rosé, and not nearly as light as a pinot noir rosé. A slight sweetness is noticed right away along with a fair amount of body. Raspberry and violet are the main flavors I gathered. This wine certainly lingers on the palate, in a welcome way. The estate was purchased in 1998 by John Goelet, who has an impressive resume. Since 1972 he has founded Clos Du Val Winery in Napa, Taltarni in Australia and Clover Hill in Tasmania (yes, they make wine there). I find the Domaine de Nizas to be a perfect GSM rosé. I’d drink this paired with food or alone. It retails around $14, and is more than worth it.

By Cory Sebastian of Sebastian's Fine Food & Spirits

San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina


Time for something funky AND delicious! With loads of bright fruit on the nose and palate, New Age is a sweet wine, but its sweetness doesn't turn me off—it excites me. New Age is semi-sparkling and reminds me almost of a juice spritzer, and really, who doesn't love those? The winery suggests serving this on ice, with which I agree, but that makes it more of a spritzer and cocktail than a wine to sip and swirl; then again, who cares? I recommend this to anyone, especially moscato drinkers. I am not going to recommend a pairing, because this isn't really a "food wine." Hailing from Argentina, the blend is half malbec and half merlot. New Age rosé almost reminded me of a mamertino or Lambrusco. New Age is a really fun wine with a great taste and, and just like the others, is very affordable at around $14.

Cafayete Valley, Argentina


I smelled earth right away on the nose which made me a little nervous, especially since I pulled out a pink cork, but on the tongue I was greeted by cherry and pomegranate, followed by the earthed finish that initially made me sceptical. Good balance existed between the fruit and the finish. Most malbec rosés have more body than other varietals and this was not an exception. This was possibly even fuller than the cabernet rosé, which isn't good or bad, simply a matter of preference. Also an Argentinian rosé, Michel Torino malbec rosé is made in northern Argentina’s Cafayete Valley from one hundred percent malbec. Skin contact is minimal and the color is luscious, much like its flavor. Try it with a spinach and strawberry salad. This can be found for around a reasonable $15.

Valencia, Spain


Meaning 'kisses,' Besitos is the only wine from Spain that I tasted for this issue. Looking for moscato? THIS is moscato. Effervescence tickles my nose as I smell and taste peach, nectarine and apricot. This would best be served along fresh summer fruit or, even better, fresh summer fruit sorbet. I think this is could be the poster child for moscato. It is everything it should be and I would recommend it as prime example of moscato for a first-timer.
