Château Minuty - "M" de Minuty 2017


This is top notch Provence rosé and a stand-by classic - light pink with beautiful perfume and very subtle fruit flavours. Well worth seeking out.

Origin: Côtes de Provence, France

 
 
 

L'Oratoire Saint Andrieu 2017


Perfect Provence rosé, with a very light pink colour and zesty acid/fruit balance. Very, very quaffable. This is a little bit more expensive, but very good.

Château Rimauresq - "R" de Rimauresq/Rimauresq Classique 2017


Another standard-bearer for classic Provence rosé and great quality. Delicious, delicate, completely drinkable on a summer day and then into the evening and then into the night.

Origin: Côtes de Provence, France

 
 
 

Bois de la Neuve 2017


Light pink to almost being white, this is fruity and floral with good perfume. An oh-so-slightly sweeter expression of Provence rosé, but very good for the price.

Quail's Gate Estate Rosé


The best of BC rosé. Light-ish pink with very lovely crisp fruit perfume, well balanced and very refreshing. This rosé has brightness, but also complexity and is something to be bought by the case.

Meyer Family Vineyards Rosé


Rosé made by the saignée method from Pinot Noir. Strawberry and marshmallow and some herbal aromas, with a very fresh and light taste at the front, leading to a more full finish. Excellent.

Origin: British Columbia, Canada

 
 

Culmina Family Estate Winery Saignée 2017


A bit more expensive, but a really classy rosé with orange zest, strawberry and spring flowers on the nose and lots of interesting fruit like grapefruit and raspberry. Very Provence.

Tantalus Vineyards Rosé


Another excellent Provence style rosé with light cheery and strawberry aromas, and a very fresh and bright palate.

Origin: British Columbia, Canada

 
 

Lock & Worth Winery Cabarnet Franc Rosé 2017


This is very zesty and a slightly different expression of rosé in that it is rich and tangy with acidity - with a sweetness/acidity balance reminiscent or Riesling. Unfined and unfiltered. Worth trying this one.

Three Otters Pinot Noir Rosé 2017


Light and refreshing with lots of strawberry and floral notes. Nice perfume. Tart acidity balancing the fruit flavours.

Origin: Oregon, United States

 
 

Angeline Vineyards Pinot Noir Rosé 2017


Lovely colour and really nice citrusy, grapefruit, as well as red fruit aromas. Some candy sweetness, but taught and delicious.

La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir Rosé


Herbs, orange and watermelon. Really nicely balanced and very refreshing.

Tiberio - Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2017


For a wonderful take on non-Provence style rosé, try this great refreshing wine. It is a beautiful cherry red colour (that's what 'cerasuolo' means!), made from Montepulciano d'Abruzzo grapes and sings with cherry fruit and electric acidity. At the BBQ, this is a super fun wine and very, very well made.

Origin: Abruzzo, Italy

 
 

Crudo Rosato 2017


A great rosé at a great price. This is made from the husky Negroamaro grape of Puglia, but in rosé form it is bright, zippy and alive with red berries.

Origin: Puglia, Italy

 
 

Celler de Capcanes Mas Donís Rosat 2017


Amazing value in a highly regarded rosé from Montsant in Spain. Fresh and light, but with some body. Lots of vibrant red fruit. Made by the saignée method, largely from grenache.

Origin: Montsant, Spain

 
 

Familia Castaño Monastrell Rosé 2017


An elegant, light and fruity rosé with lots of zesty citrus and strawberries. Made from Monastrell grapes. Super wine at a very nice price.

Origin: Yecla, Spain

 
 

La Tour Melas Idylle Rosé 2017


A beautiful Provence style delicate rosé that is pleasing on many levels. Made from 100 year old vines and displaying all the complexity that comes with such pedigree. This is a beauty.

Origin: Achinos, Greece

 
 

Costas Lazaridi Merlot Rosé 2017


So light as to be almost a white wine. Vibrant with very delicate red fruit and a light perfume. Wonderful at the seafood taverna.

Origin: Drama, Greece

 
 

Domaine Papagiannakos Granatos Rosé 2017


A really nice take on rosé. Made from old vines savatiano grapes from the Athen area, this is bright and delicious, but with a slight touch of astringency and earthy impact from the savatiano.
