People wanted a summer, they got a summer.
Until friday the temperature will rise over 30 C-thats a welcoming heatwave-considering the cool June that we had.
This is not time for red wine and steak May I suggest a glass of chilled rosado with a bowl of Gazpacho?
I just remembered the Conde Valdemar Rosado ( 12217821 , $14.45) available in massive quantities at the SAQ. A predominant blend of Garnacha with Viura as well ( 75%-25%). This rosado impressed me with its beautiful raspberry, clean and pink colour. On the nose the wine exudes aromas of fresh cherry topped with flower nuances reminiscent of aloe vera. On the palate, fresh with a polished finale.
This rosado is made by the Bujanda Family, one of the top Riojan producers. They cultivate the typical grape Riojan varieties such as Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Garnacha, Graciano and Maturana. The grapes from this amazing rosado come exclusively from their own vineyards.
This is the perfect wine to have by the pool or sitting around in your bathub filled with cold water if you dont have a pool. Get a few bottles after work and drink up. Its important to keep hydrated!!!
