While many associate rosé with a patio in summer I’m a member of the rosé year-round club. In the summer I prefer the lighter bodied, traditional French style. Once the weather turns cooler I search out a more fruit forward, medium bodied style and here’s a new pink from Chronos that’s pitch perfect. This is the new line of wines from the Time Family that includes Evolve and McWatters.
This is a beautifully made pink, 100% syrah which hints at what to expect in the glass. For me it started with an aroma of summer…ie. strawberries that carries through with the first sip. Then the syrah kicks in with medium bodied red fruit and a touch of pepper. Some real finesse with layers of flavour and a long finish. More than enough body to pair with vindaloo, a stew or sautéed Miso vegetables. Who says rosé all day can’t be for winter too?
