Wine down Wednesday

As you know if you read my regular columns about wine. I like Portuguese Rose wines and have written before about Mateus. In one of those posts I mentioned Lancers Rose and how I had drunk it in the past and found it a little sweet. But to be honest I had not drunk it in a long time, so could not resist when I was last at the wine store to pick up a bottle and compare it to Mateus rose.

Lancers Rose

This last weekend was perfect Rose wine weather, hot and humid. We certainly enjoyed the glasses we had of these delicious wines, however I was very surprised to discover the lancers was actually a little dryer than the Mateus Rose. Both are far from "sweet" rather I would describe them as fruity and refreshing, the Mateus Rose was also a little darker in color than the Lancers. Price is pretty much the same for each, so I would say from here on out I don't mind picking up a bottle of either for a party if you want to bring something different to the usual pinot grigio or cabernet/merlot.

Another summer favourite is Sangria, and I am thinking of exploring this next time. By the way, Sangria is not a wine type but a drink/cocktail made with wine. It can be red or white, although red is more common. But more next time.

I do love wine and having spent 20 years in the restaurant and hospitality industry I've had the privilege of tasting and enjoying some great wines as well as developing knowledge and a palate along the way.
