I don't drink a lot of wine these days. It makes me sleepy. I'm not sure if that's my age or the result of the effects of my past sessions of chemo on my body. So I have two choices - go for quality - and that costs - so naturally I'll drink less. Or look for a low alcohol wine.
Which is what I like about Stella Bella Pink Muscat. It is only 7.7%. I can drink more than one glass and I can drink it with lunch and not spend the afternoon on the couch sleeping it off. It's pink, slightly sweet, slightly fizzy and very easy to drink. I drank it with a lunch of Tortilla Espanola and Rocket Salad with Blue Cheese and Pears.
Recently I received a wonderful parcel of goodies from the charming Chris at Mele Cotte. Amongst the carefully chosen pieces of yellow china and sweets was a packet of California Wine Wafers. If you haven't tried these yet you must. They look like a giant communion wafer. If only communion wafers tasted this good! Chris had sent me the lemon vanilla flavoured wafers. I tried them alongside the pink muscat. Being sweeter than the wine the wine tasted less sweet.
