Just when you thought summer was over, Trader Joe’s is pulling out one final trick: blood orange rosé.
Spotted by Bustle, the wine (is it a wine? we don’t really know) is produced in France, has a “smooth and refreshing palate with lingering notes of blood orange,” and retails for about $10 at TJ’s, or $11 online. (We’ve also seen sparkling versions, but we digress.)
Friends, you can bet we have questions. At first we thought “sangria, delish!”…but it’s actually labeled as a “rosé wine with natural orange flavors,”which sounds less than delish. Where’s the blood orange juice? And what are “natural flavors”? One wine distributor says it’s made from a blend of 50 percent Cinsault and 50 percent Grenache, two grapes typically found in Provençal rosés.
So…is “orange rosé all day” the next big thing for fall? We’ll let you try it first.
