And I don’t mean blush. I’m delighted to see that pink wine is at last catching on. (Even with the guys. My Men in Pink lunch was a big hit this summer. So why not keep a good thing going?) Rosé with Indian curry is one of my favourite wine and food combinations.It’s also REALLY good with TURKEY, and charcuterie…
We’re talking dry Rosé here, refreshment as well as fun, and of course, served chilled as you do with whites. You also get some of the flavour characteristics of red wine, especially when the Rosé warms up on the table. It partners well with all kinds of food and the colour complements the festive spirit.
Lamberti Chiaretto has been a good staple house Rosé for over a decade. Delicate in flavour and feeling, but with enough refreshment to liven the palate.
For a richer, supper table Rosé, check out the new kid from Ventoux in the South of France. Tasty fruit flavours along with a little earthiness. Very bistro and very good value.
Jackson-Triggs produces a berry flavour Rosé with a touch of sweetness. A good party drink or partner for spicy hot foods.
