The first of the week I drank a 2011 Spy Valley pinot noir rosé from New Zealand's Marlborough region that ran me $13. And here's the news: I REALLY liked this rosé.
Up till now rosés have been like oysters for me: I've really tried to develop a taste for them but my general reaction has been Meh. (Or in the case of oysters, unless they're deep fried on a Po' Boy: Yuck.) This one, on the other hand, is radically different. I could see it easily becoming my summer go-to wine—if I can find it locally. I bought this bottle from invino.com.
