One of a trio of Rosés from quirky Sussex producer, Off the Line, the Dancing Dog Rosé 2017 is the producer’s playful, easy drinking rosé that comes perfectly timed for the warmer months.
It has a deep wild salmon colour, with plentiful, vibrant aromas of strawberry, raspberry and cherry.
This is a rosé for those that like their pink wine bold and confident, beginning with endless, juicy red summer berry flavours. A nice bit of weight on the mid-taste, then a hint of sweetness, before a twist of zesty fruits stops it from ever being overwhelmingly fruity.
I sampled this on the eve of the royal wedding, accompanying a barbecued spatchcock poussin & spiced sweet potato. Not only was the ripe red berry and hint of sweetness the perfect thirst quencher in the early evening sun, but also the wine was more than capable of standing up to all those rich barbecued flavours.
