Fact: It’s a pink wine from California, which leads too many to think sickly sweet. But this dry little treasure is a surprise, especially at under $10 a bottle.
Summer is a key word that comes to mind when you take the first sniff of its youthful bouquet, with its touch of watermelon and strawberry. The color is that of a summer rose, pink in the sun and just irresistible.
Chill it down and enjoy its refreshing vigor with just about any picnic food you can imagine, from pork ribs right off the grill to buttered corn on the cob.
It’s also perfect for a picnic because it has a screw cap, so you don’t have to haul along a corkscrew in addition to everything else.
Feeling: Do just want to have something icy and pleasant after mowing the lawn or reading in a hammock under a shady tree? Then this rosé is a good bet to set you out on your lost summer afternoon or evening. It’s all about relaxation and enjoyment, though there’s a welcome depth of flavors, from tart fruit to a slight mineral quality that keeps things that much more interesting.
You can find Lost Summer in select H-E-B stores.
