The downside is, it’s not available in Australia.
Discount supermarket chain Aldi’s $8 in-house rosé, Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé, earned a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge.
Considered to be the Oscars of the winemaking indsutry, the International Wine Challenge pits wines of all prices against each other to find the best drop each year. This year, Aldi’s rosé topped the list and earned the silver medal thanks to its “strawberry, white fruit and subtle spice” flavors, according to The Sun.
“It has been a huge year for innovation at Aldi. We’ve not only expanded our sparkling range, but also introduced a brand new French initiative,” Tony Baines, Aldi’s joint managing director of corporate buying, told The Sun. “We have been working closely with renowned winemaker Jean Claude Mas to change perceptions around French wine, which is often perceived as expensive and intimidating, so it is fantastic to see some of these products acknowledged as some of the best in the world.”
Prefer bubbles instead? Aldi’s Lot 25 Prosecco ($12) and limited-edition Organic Prosecco ($10) also picked up medals at the international event.
