WINE REVIEW

WINE OF THE MONTH: SEPTEMBER 2017

A good rosé wine is often overlooked as a serious wine choice as many (unfairly) associate pink wines with being overly fruity or sweet. That’s not the case with many English rosé wines! Take this delightful pale pink wine for example, exhibiting bright red berry flavours in a lively and refreshing take.

Produced by the Lindo family at Cornwall’s Camel Valley, the wine opens with wonderful ripe strawberry and raspberry aromas with a twist of lemon zest.

It’s refreshingly crisp to taste, with a bright tangy lemon and raspberry bite that leads to luscious ripe strawberry flavours and silky smooth textures.

I feel this is the perfect rosé to enjoy in the late summer, strong enough to stand up to an impromptu barbecue food pairing or perfect to sit on the beach with and enjoy the late summer sunshine before Autumn starts rolling in.

And what makes it even better? It’s priced at just £12.00 and available from our good friends Neighbourly Grape in Dorking.
