Happy Mother’s Day!!!!! Hopefully all of you are spending time and celebrating with family. And if you are, and you don’t live in a state with strict blue laws, then I suggest you run out for a bottle of the Wine Of The Week!
We are talking about the Graham Beck Brut Rose. It is bubbly, it is a Rosé and it’s from South Africa. Did I just lose you on the last point? Well if there is anything I have learned writing this weekly wine post with sommelier David Foss, it is don’t judge a wine based on its origin. Good bottles can come from anywhere. In fact, on tasting it, David was reminded of a wine from way back when this feature first started, the Gruet Brut Rose – and that one came from New Mexico!
Back to this week’s suggestion. David describes it as “affordable, good, fun, elegant and again affordable.” What does he mean by affordable? Under $17 a bottle. Perfect for a casual Mother’s Day toast.
