The inspiration for this week's pairing came to me from a country ice cream shop that had a board titled "The good stuff you don't know about." A few of the selections included lemon basil, espresso black bean, and lavender mint. I tried banana curry and Wow was that good. So this week we are sharing with you "the good stuff you don't know about".
Sighardt Donabaum Red Lips Rose’ 2013 - This wine is like opera-it combines the best of the arts to create the ultimate show. This performance begins with a striking display of coppery pink color that leads you to a bouquet of subtle geranium blossom and red berries. The surprise of fizzy bubbles elevate the fruity, yet dry flavors cherry and red raspberry with a touch of pleasant tart ruby red grapefruit, in a finish that is tied together with clean balanced acid and minerality, leaving the audience to show their appreciation through taking another sip Bravo, Brava.
