Summer Wines for Summer Times

June 8th, 2019 by

Join us on the patio for our three feature rosé wines from Italy, France, and Spain. Rosé wines are enjoyable for the summer as many of them have a little more flavour, depth and complexity than white wines but still served chilled and great with or without food.

Villabella Bardolino Chiaretto Classico Classico

If you enjoy a Valpolicella, Bardolino is made with the same blend of grapes from the Veneto region. The wine has a blend of 80% Corina and 20% Rondella grapes. This rosé is a light pink with shades of lychee and peach in colour, on the nose, there are hints of citrus and floral accompanied with herbal notes of sage. The Bardolino is a dry wine, pleasantly balanced and citrus notes to finish.

Chateau Pesquie “Terrasses”

Chateau Pesuie Terrasses is located in Rhone Valley, France. This rosé is a very pale pink from a blend of 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache, and 10% Syrah. On the nose, there are aromas of fresh red berries and citrus notes. On the palate, the wine is a dry, medium bodied with hints of gooseberries, raspberries, floral and citrus notes with a refreshing finish.

Finca Losada Rosas

Made from 100% Mencia grapes,

this Spanish rosé is a great substitute for wine drinkers who prefer red wine.

The bright rosé petal pink colour with a slight purple tint has aromas and flavours of tart, red fruits (strawberry and raspberry) with hints of floral notes and dry herbs. The wine is medium bodied with good balanced acidity, a touch of minerality and a mouth-watering finish.

Come in and enjoy these wines by the glass, bottle or try all three in a wine flight.
