Summer is Here! (well hopefully)
And I am indulging in my greatest pleasure. A glass of rose, a warm evening and a good book!
This one is for Winedeb, who is always so inspiring, with her enthusiasm of wine!
When the sun is out I always turn to one of my two favourite rose wines. Blossom Hill White Zinandel or J P Chenet Cinsault Grenache Rose. I dithered at the rose shelf, in fact I dithered about going into the supermarket! I was worried, that if I went in, the sun might disappear, while I shopped! It has happened before!
Anyway, I decided on a J P Chenet Cinsault Grenache Rose, 2005. And I was not disappointed! It was very soft on the palate, with a taste of strawberries, just right for daydreaming in the sun!. I thought I had better do a little research. I cringe at that very phrase! I have just finished my studies! I submitted my final piece at 10.23pm on Sunday and it was scary! But YEAH!!!! IT IS OVER!!!!!! I can have a life again!
I digress, the wine originates from a winery in Lantiras in France, it is famous because of the curved bottle, which was designed in the year 1991. Do you know, I have never noticed the curve neck! In my rush to pour myself a glass and get outside, while there is still sun, I just didn't notice it at all, nope, nothing is coming back to me! It is however, just what you want on a warm day! Delicious!
Look! It does have a bit of a squinty neck!
Disclosure: I wasn't sent this for review, I bought it myself.
