Sancerre Rose Gaspard de la Thaumassiere

sancerre.jpgPeople will take some time to start drinking . I think perhaps the solution will be to display the bottle visibly on the table, lest anyone think you’re drinking White Zinfandel! This is the year will take off in the US, and there’s going to have to be some shelf-space cleared. One of my preferred Roses is a Pinotage , as they usually combine the candied fruit together a refreshing off-dry profile and some faint plumb traces. I think that South Africa may just find its foothold in , or at least it has all the potential to.

I’m heading off to Greece in a little bit, and just to take the edge off thinking about packing etc. headed down to pick up a bottle, and was forced to compromise and buy a Pinot Noir Rose from Sancerre. In the way Pinot Noir is, the rose smelled like a rose-petal rosary I once bought in Jerusalem, coupled with a light redcurrant note. Its pink-grapefruit blush was magnificent, and all in all this is a perfect to include in your summer drinking.

    Pink Pinotage is certainly happening — Stormhoek should be launching their new one designed to be served over ice any day now
