While you’re reading this, I hope you have a glass of wine in hand! When tasting wine, literally layers of sensations fill your mouth with each sip. Through tasting, we can break down those sensation experiences into a few simple, yet connected components; body, alcohol, acidity, and sweetness.  We refer to these sensations as ‘mouthfeel’.  Mouthfeel is more about the sensation, as opposed to a wine’s particular flavor, and with great wine, these mouthfeel characteristics are balanced so that all are present, yet none will dominate.

Sweet—a word often perceived as synonymous with the qualities of a Rosé. But that is not always true. Give the Markham Rosé a try and you will quickly see there is nothing sweet about it! Instead with each sip, you will be greeted with a crisp freshness filled with pomegranate flavors and hints of cream. With no residual sugar, the complexity of rose petals, orange zest and mineral notes will treat you. Are you in the mood for dinner with a little something from the sea? Pair it with the 2016 Rosé of Pinot Noir to make that fish sing!
