And as such, I have no problem recommending Rosé past Labour Day (not that there’s anything wrong with that).I mean, what’s not to like about low-alcohol, off-dry pink wines? When bright with lemony acid, just-picked strawberry sweetness, pear drop charisma, gravel tinged rhubarb finish and at the $15 mark? This Gamay and Grolleau blush is strawberries and cream, sweet pear, silky smooth, and well balanced between lemon acid and residual sugar.I paired it beautifully with a sunny September afternoon in the yard, but it would also make a match to salmon salad and cured meats.Smack dab in the centre of the Loire Valley is headquarters for Les Vignerons de la Noelle. Today, the association includes 100 winegrowers from the Nantes and Anjou region, gathered together for shared marketing and quality philosophies.
