Lauren Ashton Cellars has become wildly popular for their Rosé. They’ve been sold out of the previous vintage for months and much anticipation has surrounded the release of their 2016 vintage which is set to release April 22-23 at their tasting studio in Woodinville, Washington.
Winemaker and owner Kit Singh along with his wife and co-owner Riinu Rammal are part of a growing number of wineries who love giving back and decided since the release of their Rosé was so popular they would include the community and incorporate a charitable element to their Rosé release event, “Release the Rosé.” A portion of the proceeds from the sales during the Rosé release weekend will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Puget Sound chapter. I love when this sort of out pouring of generosity happens in the wine industry.
So about this Rosé….
Wow, is it beautiful! It’s a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counnoise from Columbia Valley. The wine is bright, fresh and well balanced with flavors of strawberry, raspberry, watermelon, ripe white peach with a delicate floral note. Last night, I paired it with pork carnitas from pinch of yum and the flavors played off of each other delightfully!
If you find yourself in the Woodinville area during their “Release the Rosé” event, I highly recommend picking up some fantastic wine and supporting this great cause, it’s a win-wine (see what I did there)!
