Every Wednesday on twitter, many of us wine lovers, unite to celebrate Wine Wednesday. So I’ve decided that every Wednesday, I’m going to feature what cork I’m popping on this weekly trip through flavor country. This weeks selection is…
2009 Narmada Gulabi (Rosé) $18.00
I generally don’t like to piggie back another day with the same variety wine, unless I don’t finish the bottle from the previous night. Well this evening I decided, with some Roasted Chicken left over from last night and clearly no remaining Naked Mountain Make Me Blush, that I would whip up some Corn Pudding and pair it nicely with a nice bottle of Rosé.
This Indian gem is made up of Merlot with a splash of Concord grape and steel fermented. The nose on this wine is a light and soothing wafting of Concord grape. The palate is VERY fruit forward with a subtle hint of plum with a scintillating burst of again, wait for it…Concord grape. The finish is very crisp and clean, with plum notes finishing very strong.
The roasted chicken has a very crisp, well balanced, peppery skin and even reheated perfect moisture (forget a microwave, tossed this bad boy back on a baking sheet in the oven). The corn pudding had a very creamy and mild, but semi-sweet. Adding this Rosé to the mix was perfect bliss. Excellent choice.
If you would like any recipe I mention feel free to contact me via my front page contact form and I’ll fire it your way!
Happy Wine Wednesday!
