Summertime signifies the start of Rosé season, does it not, so to celebrate we’ve picked six of our finest for you to enjoy this summer:
1. Borgia by Borsao Rosado
Borgia by Borsao Rosado wine is a classic Spanish rosado. Delicate pink colour with aromas of ripe berry fruit and strawberry. Dry, approachable and well-balanced, with more appealing juicy strawberry fruit and a creamy mouthfeel. This easy-drinking wine will pair beautifully with grilled white meats and fish with roasted Mediterranean vegetables.
Country: Spain ABV: 13.5% | 75cl
2. Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé NV Champagne
Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé is a brilliant pink shimmering and intense. With fine bubbles, this Rosé is intense both fresh and young with aromas of red fruit (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant). A velvet, smooth champagne of fine balance, and body – a subtle wine with flavours of fresh fruit. On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of velvety and full-bodied.
Country: France 12% | 75cl
3. Burlesque White Zinfandel Rosé
Luscious strawberry ice cream on the nose supported by a bright, berry fruited palate and an off-dry finish. A lively and fruity rosé with aromas and flavours of strawberries and fresh summer berries. Not necessarily one for pairing but it’s fun in the sun!
Country: USA 11% | 75cl
4. False Bay Whole Bunch Rosé
False Bay ‘Whole Bunch’ Rosé wine is produced from Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes. A pale, spicy and textural Rosé mostly sourced from bush-vine Cinsault with summer fruits on the palate and a lovely clean, dry and finish. Perfect with Mediterranean dishes especially juicy pan-fried garlic prawns… or drink chilled on its own.
Country: South Africa 12.5% | 75cl
5. Château Saint Pierre, Tradition Côtes de Provence Rosé
A cracking manually harvested blend of Cinsault and Grenache with a powerful nose of white peach, spice and apricot. This wine is fruity and ripe with layers of strawberry, guava, white peach and candied apricot, with a fullness to the mouthfeel that is both elegant and refreshing at the same time. Great with Mediterranean-cuisine: salads, charcuterie, olives, tuna – or on its own, ideally sipped in the scorching sun.
Country: France 12.5% | 75cl
6. Lunetta Prosecco Rosé Extra Dry 2020
A fresh and dry sparkling rosé with persistent white foam, beautifully cherry pink in colour. Redberry characters on the nose and palate make this soft and approachable in character. Perfect as an aperitif or with summer salads – just as enjoyable on its own!
Country: Italian 11.50% | 75cl & 200ml
