With a name like Patio, it certainly telegraphs summer. And there's a subtitle: Vidal Spritz, not as in Sassoon hairspray but as in vidal the aromatic hybrid grape, which is lifted by moderate, crackling effervescence. Off-dry, this white from Rockaway Glen winery doles out peach dusted with herbs. Not entirely my cup of (iced) tea, to be honest, but it might please the sweet-moscato-loving masses. And at just 9-per-cent alcohol, it's less likely to fry the nerves in the heat. Check it out through www.patio9.ca.
