Drinking RELAX Pink makes you believe that you can hang onto the little bit of summer that’s left. It’s smooth, light, and refreshing, and I have the urge to walk barefoot in the grass with every sip. Pink is a Spanish rosé that is very fruit-forward and filled with luscious summer flavors, like strawberry, cherry and raspberry. What’s best about it is that with all these berries, it gives the illusion of being sweet while you still taste that fine crispness on your tongue. The mouth-feel is gentle and supple, yet satisfying. You’ll also love how versatile this wine is. It pairs well with many different types of food. For example, it balances out the heavy spices of Indian food, but at the same time, it blends nicely with something milder, like chicken or fish. My personal favorite is to pair this rose with a simple pasta primavera – heavy on the veggies and the parmesan. At $10 a bottle, RELAX Pink is a bargain and one of my favorite every day wines that’s still good enough to serve to company.
Widely available around the USA.
