BOTTLE SAYS PINOT, BUT THINK BEAUJOLAIS
So pale it’s almost a Rosé. So first move is to chill – which brings out the delish strawberry flavours, and lively, fun feeling. This would be a great summer party drink. Or to have with light meals on the patio. I’ll be decanting into clear glass to show-off the pretty colour.
Purists will be writing me that this is not a great Pinot, and I shall tell them they’re missing the point. Stoney Ridge has crafted a good summer drink – and sometimes that’s all that matters. Nice to see this winery – one of Niagara’s original, back in the game.
