Yali Rosé Offers a Taste of Summer

Print Friendly

Yali Wetland Merlot Rosé 2009

Fact: This watermelon-colored rosé from Chile’s wetland region near Maipo has plenty of pink with a touch of orange underneath. The aromas mingle strawberry and cherry with summer flowers. The tastes are lush and fruity yet dry, with a long finish. Serve it chilled with grilled shrimp, cool pork tenderloin or a seafood salad. The screw cap makes it perfect for taking along on a picnic. The price is an attractive $7.99 a bottle at Costco.

Feeling: The wine’s color may remind you of cotton candy, but its dryness will refresh you on a hot summer afternoon. I opened a well-chilled bottle at a party recently, and it disappeared in short order. It held up nicely with the salty tang of pickles and cut through the gooey richness of grilled cheese sandwiches.
