Rosé is always a good idea with wine, champagne and even gin all wearing their rose-coloured glasses for cocktail hour.
Sweet and fruity with notes of berries, white peach and almonds, the Rosé A01 Grand Cru champagne from Christian Gosset is rounded with fine bubbles bursting with freshness. Made with chardonnay and pinot noir grape varieties it is the perfect flute of bubbly to accompany a cheese platter.
Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé Bio, Wolfberger's latest sparkling offering, is an organic rosé made with pinot noir that pops with notes of raspberries. The fine bubbles and airy mousse of the sparkling rosé wine are the perfect match to serve with smoked salmon and a crudité platter.
A wonderful rosé wine to dress any table is La Belle Robe, a pink offering from France's Loire Valley's cooperative, Alliance Loire. The organic rosé is made with the cabernet franc grape variety with notes of ripe strawberries and pink grapefruit, marrying well with cheesecake for dessert.
For a rosé with a kick try the Dry Rosé Gin from Mirabeau. The house known for its Provence wines has turned its talents into creating a natural gin with hints of lemon and lavender, bringing the scents and tastes of the South of France to your cocktail glass. The fruity and floral pink gin can be enjoyed on its own or mixed in with tonic for a gin and tonic with a floral twist.
A sage rosé comes courtesy of Virgin Rosé from Le Petit Béret, an organic and alcohol-free rosé that will keep your alcohol intake at zero without compromising fun apéro time with friends. The rosé is a refreshing light pink blend of grenache and cinsault grape varieties with notes of pink grapefruit that pairs beautifully with a tomato and smoked salmon salad.
