Summer Time Kickback with Friends – Trying Avaline Wine

Cameron Diaz and Katherine Power - Avaline
Spread the love

Summer time means sunshine, beach, outdoors and time with family and friends. Taking advantage of the beautiful weather; what’s not to like hanging out on a patio, rooftop, or even air conditioning with your favorite people, food and drinks?

Wine is for myself and my friends the go-to drink when in each other’s company. We are always seeking out something great and refreshing, I was looking forward to trying a bottle of. After all, a bottle that has the summary of “Pairs well with: The warmth of the sun and the company of your best friend” is off to a great start. 

If you haven’t heard, global icon and wellness author Cameron Diaz and entrepreneur Katherine Power (Who What Wear, Versed Skincare, Merit Beauty), released a new clean vegan wine brand, Avaline. The wines are made with organic grapes and without extra sugars, colors and concentrates. Thumbs up to that!

But the main question was; how does it taste? 

After a Saturday morning playing tennis, my friends and I decided to bring out some snacks and open up a bottle of Avaline Rosé. Described as follows: 

  • Grape Varieties: Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Caladoc & Syrah
  • Tasting Notes:
  • Has a clear pale and bright color
  • The nose is seductive with fruity and floral, intense aromas composed of peach, citrus and exotics fruits with an elegant rose note
  • The mouth is fresh and becomes more complex with the aromas of yellow flesh fruits
  • Region: Provence, France

It sounded perfect for this summer day. Grabbing my glass, yes, I did get the fruit aromas. It was refreshing and we all had a second glass. After trying the Rosé, I definitely am looking forward to trying another type.
