Summer of Rosé (WIN A MAGNUM OF FRENCH ROSÉ!)
On Wednesdays, we drink pink.
Come to think of it, we drink pink Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays...
You get the picture.
At Cru we love our Pink!
We currently have two Sparkling Rosés (a Champagne from Bouzy and a Cava from Catalunya), seven Rosé Wines from across the world (Australia, Spain, Italy, France), and the ever-so-famous Froze Cocktail.
Why do we love rosé so much? It's perfect year round, no matter the weather.
It's great with food, no matter the cuisine.
Basically, it goes with everything everyday.
Winter is the perfect time to open up a deep, bold luscious rosé from the Barossa Valley (Try our Rockford Alicante Bouchet)
While warm summers call for a bottle of crisp, clean, dry rosé from Provence. (Maison Saint AIX, which we have in standard 750 ml, 1.5L Magnum and a 3L Jéroboam)
Rosé also works wonderfully with a wide variety of foods and cuisines.
Light Body: Light with light, light pasta, salads, rice. Seafood is an exceptional paring, and goat’s cheese also pairs well.
Medium Body: Seafood. Also works well with spicy dishes.
Full Body: BBQ, spices, meaty meals.
Sparkling: Tea, cakes, desserts.
Basically, there’s a rosé for every occasion, every food dish, and every weather.
Pop in and ask Tony or Colleen for a recommendation and they’ll talk your ear off. And find you that perfect rosé, of course.
