SLIME RANCHER & MÉNAGE À TROIS ROSÉ
Slime Rancher...my very first PC game. I'd been looking at this game longingly for a few months previous to building my PC. My friends would say, "When you build your PC you can finally play Slime Rancher!" Slime Rancher is a first-person farming and exploration game. You play as the adorable and courageous Beatrix LeBeau, who has has left her home planet to start a new life of slime ranching on the Far Far Range.The night I got the computer running, I immediately bought Slime Rancher and booted up the game. My friend took a video of me with tears streaming down my face as I sucked up my first slime. Cute things make me cry...and this is literally the cutest game I have ever played. Happy bouncy cooing pink slimes was probably the best thing I could have asked for, and then they showed me that the pink slimes also came in cat and firefly and rainbow crystal forms. Needless to say, I am happy with my purchase. I've spent countless hours inside the game, running around and sucking up plorts and slimes like there's no tomorrow. I am so smitten with every aspect of this game, and I look forward to every letter that Beatrix receives from her love interest back home.
So, if you've played this game, you'll understand that pairing this game with a rosé is a no-brainer. The slimes of Slime Rancher are a fantastically cheerful pink, and while I couldn't match that color precisely, I think I came pretty close! The Ménage à Trois rosé is a lovely light shade of coppery pink, and it goes really well with the warm saturated color palette of Far Far Range. The palate of this rosé has delightfully light strawberry notes, as well as sweet lychee and, miraculously, a fun burst of watermelon Jolly Rancher. That's right, watermelon Jolly Rancher. I think picking up on that flavor from the rosé was enough to sell me on this pairing alone. Sipping on this slightly sweet and refreshing wine while wrangling up adorable bouncy slimes is bound to elevate your spirits and put a smile on your face.
