Indian Rosé "I would differentiate some based on whether the purpose is to sip/drink or to serve as an accompaniment to food," said Kennedy, president of the Richmond Wine Society and a noted collector of wine. "I think of the following traits for summer sipping: refreshing, fruit-driven, fresh, interesting but uncomplicated, light or medium bodied, unoaked or lightly oaked."
