I was thoroughly captivated this week by Andis Wines' 2011 Rosé. This uncomplicated, friendly wine is exuberantly fruity, bursting with fresh, vivacious watermelon, raspberry and strawberry flavors. Serve this invigorating, slightly sweet rosé chilled, with a pretty cheese platter, Asian fare, or spicy grilled shrimp – and it’s a perfect wine to be tucked into your picnic basket for a jaunt to the beach. Remember to take a deep snuffle of its fetching fragrance - redolent of luscious, ripe watermelon - before savoring the wine’s smooth, appealing crispness on your palate. This is a terrific summer pick.
