Anyway, I digress...Now is the time to be thinking about enjoying some delicious patio wines. It's almost summer after all, and this one would fit the bill! Lots of delicious summer fruits like peaches, pears and pineapples! Yum! If you like the fruity whites, you'll love this wine! Very clean and fresh with medium acidity, so it's not too tart in the mouth. Stunning really! And the Bacchus grape? Alright, hang on to your hats for this one: Created in 1933 by a German viticulturist, it's a Silvaner/Reisling crossed with a Muller-Thurgau, which is already a cross! So...maybe it's a mutant? Haha! The Bacchus grape is usually lower in acidity (which I mentioned), and has even been described as "exuberant". Are you curious? At $13.99 a bottle, you really can't go wrong by giving this wine a try. But guess what? Not easily found in Alberta. (You BC folks should be able to find it not problem) So if you're going to the lower mainland this summer, stop in about noon to have some lunch at the Bacchus Bistro. Take the 2 pm wine tour, then take some time after that to browse their vast selection of wines in the shop, and sample some in the tasting room! Sounds like a great idea doesn't it? I'm going in August, and I'm going to do it all!
