Hello Again!

I hope you have all got over the excesses of Christmas and enjoyed your glass of Fortified Shiraz after your Christmas dinner.
Have you noticed how the days are beginning to draw out at last. It doesn’t take long after Christmas to begin to see more daylight. This set me thinking about the next big event in the calendar, which of course is Valentine’s day. So I decided to give you something pink to try this month. I love Valentine’s day. I was married the week before it, so it is a time of remembering a wonderful occasion and enjoying romantic meals together to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

There are a lot of different rose wines are available these days. I am not a great fan of rose wine’s, but this one is so fruity, it reminds me of eating a bowl of raspberries and strawberries on a warm summer day. So let it transport you forward to those warm summer evenings I hope we are going to have this summer. The wine I have chosen is one I tried about five years ago at Kilburn Wine Circle, a Fetzer Valley Oaks Syrah Rose. For those of you who want to spoil your partner on Valentines night, a bottle of this with some red roses, I am sure will put a smile on their face.

Brand: Fetzer Valley Oaks
Type: 2005
Region: Central Valley, California
Grape: Syrah Rose
Alcohol Strength: 13.5 %

The colour – Deep coloured rose
The bouquet – Aromas of Raspberries and Strawberries
Flavour - Slightly acidic, bursting with fruit with a slight hint of lavender & violet.
Price: £4.74 - Tesco Website, £6.99 - Threshers or £6.49 - Oddbins

It is ready for drinking now. I like to drink it by itself or with Seafood Risotto, a light lunch or salads. Something I seem to be eating a lot of at the moment to try and lose some of the pounds gained over Christmas.

Anne Kennedy.
