A summertime rosé from Niagara

2007 Malivoire Ladybug Rosé VQA, Niagara Peninsula, Canada $16.00 LCBO #559088

I think that it is fitting that after one of the hottest weekends in recent memory this week’s wine should be a rosé. Rosé is hands down the perfect warm weather patio wine. Unfortunately, people tend to forget about rosé and default to their white wine favourites. I am here to beg you…try something new. Try something pink.

The 2007 Malivoire Ladybug Rosé is one of these perfect hot summer afternoon wines. It has flavours of cherry, strawberry, and candyfloss (yes…you read that right) and great acidity making it incredibly refreshing. This wine can easily be drunk by itself, but would also go great with hot dogs and hamburgers.

At $16.00, this wine is ready to be enjoyed now. So get to the LCBO and pick up a bottle…but that’s just my opinion. Let me know what you think.
