Think Pink ! Wine Blogging Wednesday #9 is announced.
It has not escaped my notice that some - people - have difficulty remembering the colour of the wine they are supposed to critique for Lenndevour's virtual, monthly meme, Wine Blogging Wednesday. So now, in its ninth edition, I am tickled pink to announce that this month, countries of origin are completely redundant. As a member of that exclusive club of bloggers who are obviously colour-impaired, I hereby declare we should all forget about common but oh so confusing, every day wine colours like red and white and just think pink instead.
Yes, this month's communal wine tasting is on the theme of anything at all rosé. A review of any wine that looks like my favourite colour will be welcome to join in on Wednesday May 11th.
If you would like to take part in WBW#9, choose a rosé wine, look at it, sniff it, taste it, drink and then write something about it. Photograph it too, if you are so inclined, and then post your findings, on your blog, on Wednesday May the 11th. If you can, give us some background details, history, winemakers, place of purchase, cost. Just so you know, some bloggers like to suggest food pairings too, but this is not, by any means, a must. You don't have to be an expert wine taster to join in either. WBW warmly welcomes particpants with any level of experience, from beginners (like me) to expert wine bloggers with wine-dedicated blogs.
Shortly after the May 11th deadline I will do a roundup of all of the entries. The result, hopefully, will be a collection of varied and interesting rosé wines from all over the world. Maybe someone will be able to blog about the first bottle of wine I think I ever ordered in a restaurant, Mateus Rose . (oh yes, I am a girl with such class!) Please send me an email with your pink post on May 11th for inclusion in the roundup.
I am not going to give you a list of suggestions, because I would like you all just to go for it without influencing your choice. Summer is just around the corner and the sun is about to peek his head out from behind the clouds which is the best excuse to get outside, breathe some fresh air, and enjoy a nice chilled glass of some gorgeous-looking, thirst-quenching, pretty in pink wine. If you are stuck for ideas, just ask your local wine merchant for recommendations. Oh, I can hardly wait. Enjoy, oh, and cheers everyone!
