Move over Nantucket Reds, there’s a new shade of pink in town.
In less than a decade, rosé has gone from the fringes of the wine world to the fridges of collectors and college students alike. It’s a phenomenon unmatched among wine and spirits, a juicy segment of the alcohol economy that continues to flourish year after year. And its popularity is well warranted. There’s just something delightfully relaxing about swirling a crisp pink drink among friends. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that with the rise of rosé Nantucket would get its own signature blend.
Created by the Boston-based team behind 90+ Cellars, ACK Rosé is not a gimmick wine. The predominantly Cinsault/Grenache/Syrah blend is sourced from Provence, France, the rosé capital of the world, and fills a glass with abundant aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The wine’s brilliant acidity and minerality cozy up nicely with a dozen salty oysters and a butter-drenched lobster roll. When raised among friends on the beach, a crisp glass of ACK Rosé packs a whole lot of summer in a sip.
ACK Rosé is available at local wine shops and online at ninetypluscellars.com.
