The Jersey Shore provides a perfect backdrop to sip Rose. The inspiration for 4JGs Monmouth Blush, came about when we were vacationing in Paris with our family….asking for the house wine at lunch, and we were served rose!
Monmouth Blush carries a portrait of Molly Pitcher, a woman said to have fought in the American Battle of Monmouth. The stories of the legendary Molly Pitcher tales grew in the telling, leading many historians to regard Molly Pitcher as folklore rather than history. The name itself may have originated as a nickname given to women who carried water to men on the battlefield during War.
Rosé happens when the skins of red grapes touch wine for only a short time. Where some red wines ferment for weeks at a time on red grape skins, rosé wines are stained red for just a few hours.
Rose is unpretentious, fun, and carefree just like summer making it a perfect time to enjoy. Monmouth Blush has hints of raspberry; fruity, dry and lighthearted. Monmouth Blush like most dry rose wines can be recommended to pour with everything from Asian cuisine to charcuterie, veal and chicken.
