Pumpkin spice season will be here before we know it. And while many of us may be changing out our coffee orders, we can also add a little fall flavor to our wine racks, too. Before you dawn your best cardigan, take a look at these autumn wine flavors to fall in love with.
Rosé All Day and All Year
We often think that we should be drinking strictly red wines in the fall and winter months and whites and rosé in the spring and summer; however, you can rosé all day and all year!
Rosé is made from a blend of various red grape varieties and has a low to medium alcohol content. Paired with its fragrant scent and refreshing flavors, it pairs with many dishes or can be drunk alone.
Many people think rosé is the drink of bridal showers and girls’ weekends but we say nay! No matter your status as an experienced wine drinker or just a glass here and there, rosé is for all, at any time!
White is The Flavor of Crisp Fall Air and Cozy Nights In
We often think of white wines as light and crisp, which is true. This is why it makes the perfect end of summer, start of fall drink. However, these white wines can move away from those light flavors and be the start of a cozy night in. Some white varieties create a full, more dense flavor while remaining food-friendly.
Some whites even have a sharp flavor, which pairs well with your Thanksgiving meals full of sauces and gravy!
Loving Wine Is Red, Right Swifties?
Maybe it’s the tease of Taylor Swift’s re-release of her album “Red,” but we can’t unsee the beauty in a full glass of red wine for the fall.
The classic pinot noir is the epitome of fall wines as it pairs well with most meals and just begs to be drunk while bundled in your warmest blanket.
Another fall favorite is zinfandel, which can bring in those fire-side nights with flavors of smoke, tobacco, and darker fruits.
Put on your favorite scarf and cardigan, put down the pumpkin spice, and pour a glass of fall flavors!
The best part of fall is that comfortable feeling that overwhelms you; your favorite blanket, your best pair of jeans. At Cork Bar & Restaurant, we create a unique dining experience while dialing into the seasonal comforts we all crave.
