Gobelsburg, Dry Rose

Easter is coming up this weekend and that gives us an excuse to talk about one of our favorite topics in the wine world: DRY ROSE! This category of wine is often misunderstood because consumers have been conditioned to think that everything that is pink is sweet. Not only are most pink (or rose) wines dry, but they are very popular around the world. This trend is slowly catching on in the United States as wine geeks like us champion the awesomeness of dry roses to customers. Most of the dry rose wines start arriving in the US around this time and pair extremely well with the usual Easter dinner foods.

Chad the Tie Guy's Drink of the Week: I love dry rose wines, but this one blew me away. The combination of indigenous Austrian grapes (Zweigelt and St. Laurent) give this wine super aromatics of rose petal, cherry and strawberry with a really clean finish. This is one of those wines that just disappears from the glass. If you try one dry rose this year, make it this one!
