Though Valentine’s Day is divisive, it’s easy to forever admit your unabashed love for Rosé.
What’s not to love? Rosé wines reach from bone dry and savoury, to sparkling and celebratory, and through to sweet and sultry. Just as pink is the halfway hue between white and red on the colour spectrum, drinking pink offers up the best of both in the wine worlds. You get the freshness and acidity of white wines, plus the structure, berry fruit and tannin presence of reds. This harmony of styles makes rose wines particularly food-friendly across a myriad of flavours. As with most wines of any colour, youthful and freshest is best, but top examples have the structure to age and mature in the bottle.
So whether it’s a romantic multi-course dinner à deux, bubbles for your bubble, or a celebratory solo brunch in bed, forget flowers, buy Rosés.
