The rosé resurgence has been a long time coming, but one of the few positives of the last couple of years was the surge in appreciation of pink wines. For too long, rosé was considered a “situational” wine, not really as a wine in its own right. A wine to be drunk and enjoyed under a very limited set of circumstances, thought to only fit a single purpose, but this completely overlooks the wonderfully vinous quality of these remarkable wines. Rather than being taught of as neither red nor white, I see it as a combination of some of the best elements of both. The crisp, refreshing qualities of a white with the fresh berry fruit of a red. The taut acidity and minerality of a great white with the smoke and spice of your favourite red. The combination of red wine flavour and white wine acidity with just the finest dusting of tannin can make for a very satisfying and incredibly versatile food wine. We’ll be tasting every shade of pink, and showing just how versatile it can be with food.
