And I don’t mean blush. Iâ€™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?) RosÃ© with Indian curry is one of my favourite wine and food combinations.It’s also REALLY good with TURKEY, and charcuterie…
Weâ€™re talking dry RosÃ© 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 RosÃ© 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 RosÃ© for over a decade. Delicate in flavour and feeling, but with enough refreshment to liven the palate.
For a richer, supper table RosÃ©, 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 RosÃ© with a touch of sweetness. A good party drink or partner for spicy hot foods.
