Simple doesn’t have to be boring … that rule should also apply to the pinks you drink; choosing the right one can be difficult – I’m here to help. Erie Shore’s Summer Sun is probably one of their most popular wines, and that can be attributed to three things its great pink colour, its luscious summertime-in-a-bottle taste, and its reasonable price for such a simple yet elegant sipper. The nose is loaded with strawberry and cotton candy, but the mouth is not that sweet with raspberry, strawberry and sweet cherries; with good balancing acidity that cuts mid-way between the sweetness and the bite. This wine is only a one on the sugar – not too sweet - and just enough tart and tang to make it quenching as well as delicious. Although I liked the 2004 version, this one is even better. Note: A recent taste of the 2004 (Sept. 21, 2007) showed that it has aged quite nicely, with aromas and tastes of peach, pear and apricot.
