Rosé Wine – the Best Wine for Picnics

Rosé Wine – the Best Wine for Picnics

Hey Tasters! This is Annabelle McVine. WineScribble is on holiday. We are in the mountains. We’re at the heart of the wine
routes of Limassol in Cyprus. Right now we’re exploring a nature trail and we
have decided to stop for a picnic. Join us! I never serve anything without a salad
and Greek salad is my favourite. You can serve it as an accompaniment to just
about anything and you can have it on its own. It’s refreshing with bell
peppers, with tomatoes, with refreshing cucumber and lettuce. I absolutely love
it in the summer with olive oil and lemon vinaigrette. My friend loves sandwiches and this is
his favourite, smoked turkey and cream cheese. Very filling. This is on a
whole-grain ciabatta bread I love this little chopping board, it’s so
cute My favourite snack is a Cypriot delicacy.
It’s called Koupes. You may have heard of it called Keepe. It’s very popular
across the eastern Mediterranean every country has its own version. Spiced
mincemeat with cumin, a touch of cinnamon, allspice, lots of onions encased in
bulgur wheat pastry, and deep fried to crispy perfection. It’s amazing! I love to have it with a spritz of lemon. So which wine pairs best with such a
wide array of dishes? You have a salad, a lemony salad. You have a cream cheese and
turkey sandwich. You have a Middle Eastern snack. There’s only one wine, one
type of wine that can cover this wide array of dishes, and that is rosé my
favourite rosé at this time of year is Theoni
by Santa Irene. it’s made of mavro ambelisimo grape from vines that
there are a hundred years old. It has aromas of strawberry and grapefruit,
pink grapefruit, citrus and the alcohol level is 14%. It is quite a full-bodied
rosé wine that will keep both red wine lovers and white wine lovers happy.
And it has a range it’s very very food friendly and it will it will match every
single thing on your picnic blanket. Hey Tasters! We’re back at the stone
cottage we are renting after a two-hour trek all the way to the
Millomeri Waterfalls. I am exhausted but happy! I think there’s half a bottle left of this gorgeous wine and one more glass is
the perfect way to end a perfect day outdoors. Look at this gorgeous burlesque
pink rhinestone colour. It’s outrageous! The bottle has been open for two hours
now and all the fruit is rushing forward. I can smell raspberries now as well as
strawberries. The flavours have melted together they’ve mellowed right down. I
can also smell forest floor but that might be my clothes! Tasters, if you’re
not the type to look at the world through rose-tinted spectacles I have a
quick hack for you. Rosé tinted spectacles. It works every time!
Tasters, remember! Those who drink get drunk, those who taste feel sublime!
I’ll see you on the next video.

  1. I love the Cyprus wine sausage called παστουρμα (pastourma). I take a little tub of tzatziki and a container with chopped cucumber and cherry tomatoes and some pita bread. I assemble a sandwich right on the picnic blanket. It's bliss. But pastourma is super-garlicky, as you probably know. It will overpower any rosé. Is there a Cypriot wine that could stand up to it?

  2. Luv Rose in the summer, that sounds like one I would enjoy, especially in Cyprus. I will definitely try it, next time I'm visiting my sister in Paralimni from London.
