So why not do it with one more glass of rosé for the season? Here are my thoughts on Sosie Wines Rosé of Syrah 2017, should you need convincing. Obligatory disclaimer: This wine was a free sample for my review.

Not to worry – no fur or feathers made it into the glass, just lovely dusky pink with copper tones. It smells of guava and strawberry. The wine feels medium-bodied and buttery on the tongue, with prominent guava and a bounty of freshly washed skipping stones. Think of a guava half broiled just long enough to caramelize a few drops of juice. Serve that up with strawberries dipped in cream. The backbone of stony acidity provides enough balance to keep you from feeling guilty for this dessert.
