As a wine consultant at Surdyk’s, I have seen many trends that have come and gone. But one trend that has enjoyed ever-increasing demand over the last 6-8 years is the love for dry Rosé style wines. While beautiful Rosés throughout the world, clearly the region most synonymous with the trend is Provence, France. One of my personal favorites in the store right now is from Chateau Trians, a certified organic, 49-acre property which dates from the 18th century.
A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, and 10% Syrah (some from 50+-year-old vines), this wine surprised me with its complexity. This goes beyond simple summer sipping. The color is a beautiful pink, with aromas of fresh berries and floral notes that carry over to the palate with the perfect hint of acidity to add brightness to the long finish.

Chateau Trians is a perfect pairing with Cana de Cabra, a Spanish ripened goat cheese similar to French Bucheron but with a more robust flavor, available in the Surdyk’s Cheese Shop.
