Austin, Texas, March 30, 2015 — Ripe for the heart of Spring, Austin wine maker and sommelier, Wine for the People’s Rae Wilson, will introduce a limited run of her inaugural Texas Rosé late April: Dandy Rosé. Available throughout the spring in the wine garden at Lenoir.
Sourced from 100% Texas grapes, Dandy Rosé showcases Texas’ natural aptitude for young, fresh wines. Abundant heat adds ripeness to the crisp dry quality lent by the pedernales—or flint rocks—and limestone escarpments of the hill country. No better climate-soil dynamic exists for bringing out the bracing, thirst-quenching quality that makes rosé wine loved the world over.
This interplay is also the groundwork for Wilson and venture partner Jill Posey’s neighboring Blanco County vineyard, where the young vines for Dandy’s promising single-vineyard bottlings are being nurtured to maturity.
Dandy Rosé is light, lean, vivacious and nonchalant without lacking depth or balance: all summer hopes for in a fair-weather friend. And what could be better suited for the terraces of town than a sip from Austin’s own backyard?
Don’t take our word for it. Join Rae, colleagues and friends for a toast and a tipple under the trees at the Dandy Rosé Release Party. Lenoir Wine Garden 1807 South First Street, Wednesday April 22, 5-7:30pm
