HERE’S A FEW MORE ROSES TO EXTEND THE SEASON…September means you can STILL wear white AND drink the pink stuff.
Emiliana is dry with a lovely fruitiness, so it feels more yummy than most. Crowdpleasing, party stuff to make everyone happy. Organic too.
EMILIANA 13 ‘Adobe’ Rose, Chile (Organic) 274399 $11.95
BARGAIN PRICED FROM PROVENCE
This is not the greatest, but it does tweak the imagination in the direction of images of Provence. Such as wine indulgent picnics and patio lunches. Pale coloured of course, refreshing and modest in flavor and alcohol – so you’ll be needing a second bottle. This level of wine is usually $17.95 at Vintages.
ESTANDON VIGNERONS 13 ‘Terres de Saint-Louis’, Coteaux Varois en Provence, France 234575 $11.95
LOVE THE LABEL
The wine is a shade thin (poor weather perhaps) but fine for the price. Prestigious producer, and stylish package help push the envelope.
MICHEL CHAPOUTIER 13 ‘Marius ‘Rose, VDP d’Oc, France 3677383 $13.95
I overlooked this old favourite in the flurry of this year’s new Rosés. Hope you didn’t, as it’s a really good edition of pink sparkling, at an everyday price. And available year round, so make a note in your device for Thanksgiving and Xmas parties.
FREIXENET Brut ‘Cordon Rosado’ Cava, Spain 217059 $13.95
P.S. A friend tells me they have Rosé on tap in Stratford restaurants…not sure where though, but exciting news!
