Last summer, in the Hamptons, there was a rosé shortage. People were running through the streets, screaming. There was not enough rosé. They were hoarding it in their arms … and we said, ‘never again!’” That's when Instagram superstar Josh Ostrovsky (who you might know as @TheFat Jewish or maybe just the King of Brunch or Whitney Jewston or Jewther Vandross?) says he got the idea for White Girl Rosé.
This wine is pink, however it is NOT SWEET! This DRY rose is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and "Red" Zinfandel that is as dry as a normal Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay. This wine has flavors of watermelon, strawberry and floral notes with a crisp, clean finish. This wine is perfect for fall because it is flavorful and yet refreshing, but it is available year round for those in the know!
Chad the Tie Guy's Review: We love dry roses because they are the best of both worlds. They have the rich, complex flavors of a red wine and the crisp, refreshing finish of a white wine. They are made the same way as a red wine but the skins are removed after a few days leaving the color and body lighter. If you have never tried a dry rose, do yourself a favor and dive right in with this kitschy complement to Thanksgiving dinner!
Grape Varietals: Zinfandel (65%), Sauvignon Blanc (35%)

Food Pairings: A crisp, refreshing wine like this goes great by itself but is so versatile that it can go with everything from appetizers and salads to Salmon and Pork. Dry roses like this wine are the perfect accompaniment for Thanksgiving dinner (so if your planning ahead, grab it now before everyone else gets it).
