Reddy Vineyards Rosé

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know I love rosé with take-out Chinese food. The Reddy Vineyards (website) Rosé was a Texas Wine Club (website) selection.

Described as “a stunning rose quartz color with brilliant cherry, this refreshing dry rosé offers flavors of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and succulent red apple. This wine is light-bodied with a crisp, mineral-driven finish. Pair with salads, fruit and seafood, or just relax and sip with friends by the pool!”

This is a blend of Cinsault (73%), Mourvèdre (19%) and Merlot (8%).

I didn’t get all the scents suggested by the description and really only got strawberry and lemon. Truthfully, it smells like rosé – nothing too distinguishing. It was pleasant, but it needed to be colder than the temperature at which I drank it.

Final Thoughts

The pairing suggested by the Texas Wine Club were fig and goat cheese crostini with prosciutto. I preferred it with my garlic eggplant, scallion pancakes and brown rice. Although, the Kung Pao (not pictured) both softens and enhances the spice. The scallion pancakes made it tart. But it was perfect for Tuesday night take-out, and I’d pair it again.
