Weekly Wine – Canadian Rosé

19 Apr

Jackson-Triggs Rosé
2016
Canada
750ml
11.5% ABV
$9.75 (LCBO)

This wine looks good.
The bottle is nice.
I liked the colour.
I had such high hopes for this wine.
Really, I did.
Wow was the first sip sour. Not too good.
The second sip was not much better. This wine is very acidic – to the point that I can’t really taste the wine. It has a pink flavour I guess – kind of like kids drinks that the flavour is stated by the colour. Purple flavour, orange flavour, red flavour, green flavour.
This one is pink but it is not as sweet as the kid’s drinks – it is fairly dry and that just seems to exsacerbate the acidity and the sourness.
What a shame.
