Best Buy! One of Oregon’s fastest-growing brands comes at rose on a larger scale and with a different approach for its inaugural rosé, starting with 10 hours of skin contact for its Pinot Gris. Then, berries of Pinot Noir and Syrah are left to sit on the skins — without fermentation — for two days before pressing and going into stainless steel fermentation. The final blend builds tropical aromas with rosewater and lychee, which transitions into a brisk drink of ripe strawberry, red currant, vanilla and baked cherry pie filling. Both the price and the screwcap make it easy to get at, and here’s their two-serving recipe for Underwood Rosé Margarita.
