Tony Aspler's wine pick of the week: Southbrook Connect Rosé 2010

I’ve always thought that Ontario could make world-class rosé, and in a couple of cases we do. Southbrook Connect Rosé 2010 is not your run-of-the-mill pink wine. This one is deep pink with an orange tint. It has a nose of strawberry compote and flavours of strawberries and redcurrants. Full in the mouth with a touch of sweetness in mid-palate, it has enough citrus acidity to finish dry and clean. Food match: serve with chicken salad or grilled ham.

Post City Magazines’ wine columnist, Tony Aspler, has written 14 books on wine and food. Tony also created the Ontario Wine Awards. He can be heard on 680News.
