We’re thinking rose would be the perfect choice here, refreshing, light and a little fruity. You can sip rosé with or without food whilst you kick back and relax after a hard day of meetings, excel spreadsheets and scrolling through Insta for vacation inspiration. There is a whole world of rosé wine out there, so we’ve put together a list of ones we enjoy taste testing (for research purposes, obviously) that we think you’ll rather like too.
Belles Du Sud: Exquisitely light in both colour, taste and alcohol volume, at 10%, it’s a fab choice for those who enjoy a lighter, simpler wine. The blend of Cinsault and Grenache grapes give the Belle du Sud it’s wonderfully pale pink look, whilst bringing out floral aromas with just a hint of grapefruit. A beautifully balanced, sophisticated wine you and your friends will adore.
James Martin Rosé: James transports us straight to the vineyard, with this elegant rosé from the Languedoc. Selected for their delicate aromas, his rosé is a blend of Cinsault and Grenache gris grapes giving it a crisp pink colour. It’s not only great just by itself, but it’s also a great foodie partner to light summer dishes, such as fresh salads, cheeses and white fish.
Bacio della Luna Prosecco Rosé: Get your ice buckets ready, we’re throwing in a wildcard here from Italy (obvs because it’s prosecco), but sometimes you just need to pop a bit of fizz, whatever the occasion. A delightful blend of Glera and Pinot Noir, it’s bubbling with strawberry and delicate rose petal notes (fancy right?) and will make you feel that extra bit special when you open it.
Anna Haugh Rosé: we have another chef in our midst! Anna Haugh has created this rosé from the Languedoc, to complement the elegant and refined style of her cooking, that you can now enjoy in the comfort of your own home! This pale pink wine has a youthful feel, with hints of light red fruit on the palate giving it an incredibly pleasant, refreshing taste.
Amicone Rosé Pinot Grigio: another Italian gem just for a little variety! 100% Pinot Grigio, you’ll be sipping notes of citrus and summer fruits, with an aroma of white flowers and red berries. It’s a well-balanced wine, with a little acidity and freshness. The ideal partner for light appetizers and those all important barbecues.
French Bulldog Rosé: and we’re back to the South of France, but we couldn’t resist because it is an absolute sheer delight to taste. It’s bolder without losing the delicate nature of a classic French rosé. You can expect floral and fruity aromas of strawberry, with slightly spiced red fruit and a little complexity to give it a real edge.
