Honeysuckle Love

Cantina Su’entu
Su’aro 2018
Bianco blend of native grapes
Marmilla IGT
Sardegna Italy

A bright bold glass of gold. At first whiff there’s citrus, like tangerine and lemon with a splash of grapefruit. As it goes on, out comes hibiscus, honeysuckle,  rich melon, apricot, a dash of salt, and just deep beautiful flowers…whew that’s a lot and we haven’t even had a first sip. Here we go! Luscious melon and honey and all sorts flowers, a little orange peel tang, and a nice touch of salt.

Pairs with Cheez-Its: makes the honeysuckle and melon go wild. Where’s the prosciutto?

Here’s another bit of smooth sweetness with Sarah Vaughan, Honeysuckle Rose

A Bottle of Sunshine

“Sunny day
Sweeping the clouds away”
This is a bottle of sunshine

Nina Rosé 2018
Isola Dei Nuraghi Rosso IGT

Grape: Bovale and a small touch of vermentino (anyone that knows me, knows the Dean Martin song stuck in my head now. Lyrics way below)

The color is a beautiful bright salmon. Opening it up, and the first that hits me is grapefruit (don’t kill me, it’s an ipa grapefruit) then fresh strawberries and floral.

 Now for the first sip, whoa there a lot more to this wine than I originally thought. Just like the nose, there’s just picked strawberries, grapefruit (but now not like an ipa), and salt. It’s fresh, bright, but has a body. Sweet w a hint of tart. Lovely. This is a wonderful touch of summer. Wish I was outside, but one can always dream…

My really sweet dad keeps sending me wonderful care packages including Cheez-Its. So here goes “Pairs with Cheez-its”:  My Cheez-it brings deeper strawberries to the yard

Otherwise: Would be great w shrimp and scallops. *Edit: I would love this with fried shrimp (Carolina or Gulf) and hush puppies and sitting on a deck staring at the sea

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh oh
Let’s fly way up to the clouds
Away from the maddening crowds
We can sing in the glow of a star that I know of
Where lovers enjoy peace of mind
Let us leave the confusion and all disillusion behind
Just like bird of a feather, a rainbow together we’ll find
Volare, oh oh
E contare, oh oh oh oh
No wonder my happy heart sings
Your love has given me wings
Penso che un sogno cosi non ritorni mai più
Mi dipingevo le mani e la faccia di blu
Poi d’improvviso venivo dal vento rapito
E incominciavo a volare nel cielo infinito
Volare, oh oh
E contare, oh oh oh oh
Nel blu, dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu
E volavo, volavo felice piu in alto del sole ed ancora piu su
Mentre il mondo pian piano spariva lontano laggiu
Una musica dolce suonava soltanto per me
Volare, oh oh
E cantare, oh oh oh oh
No wonder my happy heart sings
Your love has given me wings
Nel blu, dipinto di blu

Felice di stare lassu
