Hiully's Picks

Hiully is all about Rosé again this week. And why not? The wine screams summer! 90+ Rose($17.99/1.5L btl)  is what she is bringing to her Memorial Day Weekend parties. It is a great Rosé at a crowd-pleasing price point.  Aromas of ripe strawberries and cherries accompanied by fresh herbs. Dry and bright on the palate, it has loads of juicy fruit and an easy-drinking demeanor.

Hiully might be our mixologist, but she does like a good Rosé on a warm day. Nothing screams Springtime more than a good Rosé and the one she is enjoying right now is Wölffer Estate Rosé ($17.99) out of Long Island. This wine may be produced just across the Sound, but it has a very European feel to the wine.

Fresh, floral, flinty and fruity are the best descriptors of this great wine. The mouth-feel is chock full of peach, apricots and strawberries. A lively acidity and classic dry-finish make this an extremely food-friendly wine. Hiully will pair Wölffer Estate Rosé with everything from grilled meats, to pizza, to salads and cheeses.
