It is THE wine trend of the last five years: rosé has taken over the world!
After languishing for a decade or two, rosé has at last reclaimed its spot as the perfect apéritif wine. And the best are also great with food. I thought with summer coming along - and the end of lockdown too - a nice little rosé selection pack might be the go.
Now I know you're all screaming for pink Provençal plonk, and let me tell you there's plenty of that around - some good, others not so much. But you have to realise that Australian rosé has come of age: much less of the high alcohol, slightly sweet, burnt orange offerings of days gone by - and much more of the fresh, dry, onion skin coloured wines of the new dawn.
In the box you'll find Krinklewood's famous rosé Francesca. Made from Mourvèdre, it's the closest in style to classic Provence rosé. Then Pizzini's stab at a coastal Tuscany style made from sangiovese. And a more full-bodied syrah-based wine from Sutton Grange in Victoria.
2021 Krinklewood 'Francesca' Rosé (mourvèdre-merlot), Hunter Valley, NSW
2020 Pizzini 'Rosetta' Rosé (sangiovese-shiraz), King Valley, Victoria
2019 Sutton Grange 'Fairbank' Rosé (syrah-sangiovese-cab), Central Victoria
Individually priced they would be $100 - but together they're $90. That's 10% off!
