When it comes to rosé, there’s no other way…
Feeling pretty in pink or simply just love looking at life through rose-tinted glasses? We do too. Of course, besides the bewitching colour of this marvellous drop, when it comes to rosé, there’s just something so charming and refreshing about this wine.
So, to help celebrate one of the most important days in our wine calendar, International Rosé Day (13 June), we’ve tracked down, tasted and fallen in love with four of the top rosé picks for this International Rosé Day 2020:
Patrick of Coonawarra P-Series Rosé
From the Limestone Coast in South Australia, the Patrick of Coonawarra P-Series Rosé exhibits the essence of the modern Australian rosé. Vibrantly coloured, this creamy style drop embodies floral aromas and berry fruit flavours on the palate. This is dry in sugar but has just enough fruit sweetness and weight to be both interesting and refreshing.
Pairing: Best paired with a summery salad embellished with fresh seasonal fruit; or a bewitching grazing platter to share.
This alcohol-removed option is a delicate Australian rosé distinguished by its youthful colour, delicious berry fruit flavours and an aroma of rose petals, redcurrants. A non-intoxicating drop that is a brilliant alternative for those who love a glass of their favourite wine without the effects of alcohol.
Pairing: Pairs perfectly with prawns, lobster or soft shell crab. For the cheese-lovers amongst us, you can also pair this drop with a serving of goats cheese.
Rochford Wines Estate Rosé
When it comes to Rochford Wines Estate Rosé, expect a delicate aroma of rosehip, pomegranate and floral potpourri with an undertone of tossed red fruit compote. A dry, fine evolution of the palate is defined by a lean and crisp acidity, containing flavours of strawberry, redcurrants and watermelon.
Pairing: Pair the Rochford Wines Estate Rosé with confit duck featuring a side of green salad and roasted potatoes.
Rochford Wines Single Vineyard Sparkling Rosé
This drop is elegant, textural and completely dry, with a creamy, faintly confectionary scent of raspberries, strawberries and citrus oil. Driving long and full down the palate, Rochford Wines Single Vineyard Sparkling Rosé is intense but features a gentle core of bright small berry/cherry flavour which overlies a crunchy, chalky spine before culminating in a vivacious and refreshing finish without any austerity. Perfect to enjoy now or to cellar for eight to 10 years.
Pairing: A luscious and uplifting feta, watermelon and mint salad.
