I think that we've gotten around 4 inches of rain this week. I thought that the saying was "APRIL showers bring May flowers", not "April showers bring more May showers". I can't complain about it too much though! I have been planting a lot of new flowers and bushes at the house, and all this rain has been allowing me to not have to water by hose every day...so that's a plus. But I could do with some sunshine. It has been kind of depressing without it.
I think I have had our 2017 Rosé almost weekend since we've released it. It is portable sunshine (currently needed!)...and it goes with everything. Last Friday (after our 2 tours), I shared a bottle of it with my grandparents overlooking the vineyard (perfect pairing for the end of the day). Last Saturday, I enjoyed it with smoked salmon, skirt steak with chimichurri, and grilled chicken. It went perfectly with all of that. The weekend before, I enjoyed it with some friends and a little pizza. Again..perfect. Tonight, I plan to enjoy it with some friends and Indian food! I'm sure it will be a perfect pairing yet again!
Have you tried it yet? I know that Stone Rose in Conshy was doing a Rosé month where Karamoor was featured alongside of some other Rosés from interesting regions. We got a lot of nice notes (and Instagram posts) from people enjoying it! I really love Rosé - I think it is so versatile and there are a lot of wineries doing great ones. It is nice to see places highlight regions that are not as traditional...I think that it really helps facilitate the realization that great wines don't just come from the places that you expect. (AKA Karamoor!).
This weekend is supposed to be rainy. Again. I can't say that I am TOO bummed about it because rainy days means relaxation. Movie marathons. Maybe some popcorn and takeout. Until next time...
