June has been declared Rosé Month. (Alas, a month with only 30 days.)
This seems like a charming way to welcome warmer weather.
Especially when you have a fresh mountain stream in which to chill it.
The wine is a local (BC) one: THERAPY PINK FREUD
This attractive Rosé wine is balanced with intense aromatics of wild strawberries, red licorice and blackberry jam. Followed by a concentrated red plum, tart cherry and fresh strawberry palate. The mid-palate is round and juicy because of the natural residual sugars creating a slightly off-dry finish. Enjoy this wine chilled with cheeses and fruits or on its own on a warm summer day.
