Therapy Vineyard 2007 Pink Freud (British Columbia)
Summer's here and the time is right for pink wine. This neat little rosé is a blend of the bleedings of a multitude of red grapes - that means it's free-run juice from these grapes before they have had time to colour when contacted with the skins (all grape juice is white after all - even from red grapes). This wine had a great salmon-strawberry juice colour, the nose was candied strawberry and had the same kind of flavours on the tongue with a long strawberry finish. I remember it being fresher the year it was bought (last year), but even a year on it still had nice fruit and quenched a thirst on this hot summer day.
