Last night we drank one of the bottles we picked up at Swedenburg Vineyards. First, I have to say that I love the fact that the label was drawn by a 10 year old Swedenburg family member. It’s adorable and a really cute touch.
The wine was a 2005 C’est La Vie, A Rose. 12% alcohol by volume, real cork closure and cost us $10 (it was on special, usually is $12, but if you bought 3 it was only ten). A very dry rose, but a style I really enjoy. Many roses tend to be a little too sweet for my tastes, so I’m always happy to run across a nice dry one. This one displays good strawberry and raspberry flavors and would make a great porch sipping wine.
I served with with ham and cheese omlettes, a little bit odd, but Matt offered to cook last night and omlettes are his speciality. It actually wasn’t a bad match, especially with the ham in the omlettes.
