Due to the unusually hot October weather (almost 90 degrees here today!), I wanted an unusual wine that I could have chilled.
After spending only several minutes in the air-conditioned wine store this afternoon, I found exactly that. This rosÃ© from Portugal caught my eye first with its flask-shaped bottle, and then with the cheap price tag: 4 bucks! The bottle wasn’t pretty, but just as we shouldn’t be judging wine by the price, we also don’t need to be judging a book by the cover, or in this case, a wine by the bottle. We’re all equal-opportunity alcohol consumers, right?
Overall, this wine is fantastic. Check out the fizzy bubbles:
Served very cold (recommended), this wine had a delightful pink tone, a clean, crisp taste, and a very pleasant bubbly texture. This cheap, sweet, refreshing wine really hit the spot tonight.
Although I will be keeping a bottle or two of this wine to enjoy all year round, it almost makes me sad to see summer go.
