It has been a warm couple of days and it makes me think of the Summer In the City song by Lovin’ Spoonful:
One way to escape the heat is a cold glass of wine, and at this moment, I decided a Rosé would be the best choice.
I have found that Rose can sometimes confuse or disappoint. They can have a super fruity nose, but a savory palette or the opposite, both of which make my brain hurt. I am more of a say it how it is kinda girl, which is why I very much appreciated my glass of Viña Olvido Rosado.
This crisp wine does not disappoint. It is orange-red in color, with a green, almost leafy and citrus nose. And it had the palette to match: lemony, light and airy, a bit of acid an hints of raspberry.
And for a hot day, it was just what I needed. It was refreshing and tart, like an adult glass of lemonade. The perfect porch-wine, for enjoying the hot afternoon and watching the sun set.
