The dog days of summer are almost upon us, and you’re going to need something to cool down with on those hot days. Always on the lookout for you, I have found that special something that you’re sure to enjoy on the deck, dock or patio of your choice. This Summer Rose is a blend of everyone’s favourite summer sipper, Riesling (70%), and a light Gamay (30%). There’s a sweet smell when it first hits your nose: strawberries and cream or cotton candy, but in the mouth it’s drier than what the nose suggests, with a definite taste of bing cherries and raspberries … which reminds me, if you want to try something fun, unique and interesting, freeze up some raspberries and use them as “ice cubes” to keep the wine chilled on those heat-filled days. Anyway you drink it, this is a delicious, light and refreshing wine.
