SST-Summer Salad with Fresh Watermelon & Cucumber-August 19 2014 wineGosling’s Wine of the Week
Lunetta Prosecco produced by Cavit in Northern Italy is Gosling’s choice for Chef Chad’s watermelon and cucumber salad. It is pale straw in colour with greenish inflections, fine bubbles, and a creamy white foam. The wine is fragrant with aromas of apple and peach. It’s refreshing, dry and harmonious with crisp fruit flavours and a clean finish.

The retail price is $17.25 and it’s available at Lindo’s and Gosling’s stores.
