Isn’t Rose Pink Plonk?

Brightly coloured & too sweet?

Previously rosé wines had been considered excessively sweet bright coloured pink plonk. However, this is no longer the case. The world of rosé is vast, with varieties that range from dry to sweet and tones from pale pink to deep pink. By order of consumer preference there are 6 main colour references: Peach, Mango, Pomelo, Mandarin and Redcurrant.

Gilles continues. “Rosé has seen a revival due to better-quality production and improved wine education. It’s a delicious alternative to whites and reds, and as there are so many styles and varieties, it’s an all-rounder and can be enjoyed with fish, seafood, pasta dishes, goat’s cheese, meat dishes and salads. In France its traditionally enjoyed throughout a whole meal.”

Sales of rosé wine have tended to accelerate as the weather gets warmer and we move into spring/summer. However, more recently we’ve started to see an increased demand for rosé all year round.
