Despite the misconceptions surrounding our favourite flirt, we can assure you that Rosé is: a) not made from a blend of red and white grapes, b) not always sweet, and c) not just for ladies. Yes, men drink Rosé too.

As Rosé is a staple for warm weather, you'll often find a bottle buried deep in the ice bucket at picnics, barbecues, and beach days. Serve well chilled.
The perfect wine pair for spicy dishes or snacks on the go: Vietnamese rolls, tiger prawns, charcuterie, and soft cheese.
What's in the bottle is bright and acidic with a hint of earthiness and spice. Fewer florals and more flavours of melon and lush strawberry.
