Monster Vineyards Rose 2016 B.C.

I know the weather is cooler and wetter but what better time to embrace summer’s signature wine? I’m a year round rose kinda guy because it helps me chase away the dreary fall and winter seasons. Monster makes the perfect Rose for sunshine challenged days. Using a blend of Malbec, Syrah and Merlot the winery has crafted a medium bodied wine that’ll stand up to any hearty cuisine. There’s an aroma of watermelon that gives way to flavours of red berries, grapefruit and the slightest hint of cranberries that adds a subtle tartness. I really enjoyed the mouth watering acidity in this Rose which makes it so food friendly. Plus the price is so affordable you now have your everyday pink whether it’s January or July!

Price: $15.99 (plus tax)
Available: B.C. Liquor stores
