Rosé wine has become more and more popular over the years - and we’re pretty pleased about that, because there’s really nothing nicer to sip on a summer’s evening. As ever, sweeter pinks like Californian White Zinfandel and White Grenache are popular, but if you’re a fan of rosé, there are plenty of other varieties to try.
Maresco Pink Pinot Grigio
A rosé with subtle red fruit notes on the nose and a soft palate of fresh strawberries and raspberries. Great as an aperitif or try with risotto, pasta or seafood.
La Vieille Ferme Rosé
Produced by the Perrin Family with a perfume of rose petals and citrus fruit to give an intense and balanced wine. Enjoy this pale pink Rosé with cold buffets, tomato salads and grilled meats.
Q: How much sugar is in my rosé?
A: Dry = up to 4g/l
Medium dry = up to 12g/l
Medium = up to 45g/l
Sweet = more than 45g/l
Q: Does rosé pair well
A: Rosé is wonderfully versatile as a match to food; the sweeter Californian pinks are ideal with barbecued meals whilst lighter rosés from Provence and Italy can make excellent accompaniments to spicy pizza, pasta and seafood dishes.
Q: What is the difference between ‘rosé’ and ‘blush’?
A: Rosé wine is made from black or red grapes, same as those used for red wine, but the production is slightly different. The period for which the wine is left to extract colour from the skin of the grape is much shorter – leading to a pink instead of red tone, and a lighter style, as selected by the winemaker.
