After 2020, I told to myself that 2021 was going to pursue more adventure. Hence, on this adventurous path I decided to try different things including Celebrity Wines. I was always so skeptical about Celebrity Wines but I tried a couple of them that really surprised me such as Amar Stoudemire Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 and Mary J. Blige Pinot Grigio Ramato. However, MYX Fusions Chardonnay and Rosé from Nicki Minaj were missing from my list, but made it to Cosmo Wine List.
Cosmopolitan Magazine named MYX Light the Best Celeb-Owned Wine, featured in the November 2021 issue, “The Only Awards You’ll Care About This Season Are the Cosmo Wine Awards.” According to Cosmopolitan editors, “The flavor of MYX Light is gentle, sweet, and, dare I say…fun?! Plus the can is petite, cute, and pairs well as an accessory for any Friday-night outfit, on or off the red carpet.”
I didn’t get a lot of the tasting of the wine from the Cosmopolitan editors description. However, the feature got me very curious about them. It has been so long since I do not have a Rosé or Chardonnay from Italy! I decided to taste it and made a wrap up on Celebrity Wines for the year.
Nicki Minaj, according to the New York Times, is the world’s biggest female hip-hop star, a top pop star and the first woman to achieve success in both Pop and R&B genres. Her numerous accolades include eight American Music Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, twelve BET Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, a Brit Award, and a Guinness World Record. Billboard ranked her as the top female rapper of the 2010s, as well as seventh among the top female artists of the decade
She is also an investor in MYX Beverage LLC, which was formed in 2013 in New York. The company is comprised of strategic partners committed to taking the growing wine industry by storm. MYX Fusion Beverages are certified OU- Kosher. More information on MYX Beverage LLC here.
MYX Fusion Light Rose and Light Chardonnay in portable cans are ideal to carry everywhere. They are sold in 4-packs of 250ml cans and has only 5% alcohol by volume. They are using age-old methods of early harvest and creative innovation.
MYX Light Chardonnay is to my taste a semi-dry wine with notes of lemon, lime, sour patch, fresh, crisp notes of green apple and pear. MYX Light Rosé is made from Barbera grapes showcasing hints of strawberry, raspberry, and citrus.
