Top Ten : Rosé

By: Treve Ring
It's think pink, drink pink season

It's think pink, drink pink season.

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 rosé wines food-friendly, especially the drier styles, which is where the category internationally is trending (whew!). As with most wines of any hue, youthful and freshest is best, but top examples have the structure to age and mature over the short term in the bottle. 

To welcome in summer, here are our Top 10 Rosés recently tasted at GOW.
