Ca Dei Frati Rosa Dei Frati 2016 (1x 75cl)

The Dal Cero family has transformed their Ca' dei Frati property, situated on the southern shores of Lake Garda, into a model Italian estate over the past two decades. Back in 1987, they had 12 hectares of vineyard but now, following the purchase of a large chunk of prime vineyard in 2008, they have over 160 hectares. This increase in quantity has been matched by an increase in quality and today they remain the best producer in Lugana.

The secret to the success of the Ca' dei Frati wines is their outstanding vineyards. Most producers in the zone overcrop and train the vines high. At Ca' dei Frati, the vines are trained low, newer vineyards have a higher density of planting, and yields are well below the average for the zone. Fruit for this wine came from two vineyards, 'I Frati' in Sirmione and 'La Tur' in Desenzano. The soils are a mixture of chalky clay, sand and lime. The vines are single and double Guyot trained. The yield is 9 tonnes per hectare.

2016 saw a hot and dry summer in Lombardy. A cool spring with some rainfall was followed by a hot June and July. Large shifts between day and night time temperatures throughout August helped to balance ripening and produce healthy, grapes with refreshing acidity.

There was a short period of skin contact at the start of the vinification process to extract colour. The must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, 80% of the wine was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine remained in tank for six months before bottling and then a further two months in bottle before release.

Rosa dei Frati is light pink with a touch of 'onion skin' orange. Zesty and vibrant with aromas of summer pudding and strawberries, it is perfectly balanced with a lovely refreshing finish.

Castano Monastrell Rosado, Yecla 2016 (1x75cl)

The Castaño family owns over 410 hectares of vineyards in the Yecla DO in south-eastern Spain. 80% of these vineyards are planted with the native Monastrell variety. Castaño symbolises the best of what southern Spain has to offer: rich, warm climate wines made from grapes grown at altitude and transformed into robustly modern wines. For several generations, Bodegas Castaño has been a pioneer in the region.

The Castaño Monastrell Rosé is grown in the Castaño family vineyards, situated in the north of Yecla located at an altitude of 750m above sea level. The vineyards are dry-farmed and the vines are grown on poor, limestone soil. The roots of the vines therefore grow deep into the earth in search for precious minerals and nutrients, which in turn helps to ensure healthy, ripe, flavoursome grapes. 

The wine is made 100% from Monastrell. Grapes undergo a direct pressing without maceration of the skins. Fermentation takes place at 16C in stainless steel and undergoes cold stabilisation before bottling. This Monastrell Rosado offers fresh, red fruits on the nose. On the palate it is soft and fruity, with prominent cherry and strawberry flavours, vibrant acidity and a long, lifted finish.

Charles Melton Rose Of Virginia 2017 (1x 75cl)

The 2015 vintage of this wine was awarded 93 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of their Top 30 Rosés (see blue link below)

Charles Melton Rose Virginia 2015 - Aug 2017 Decanter review

Charles Melton Wines has produced premium Barossa red wines since 1984. At that time, Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what were then considered a couple of unfashionable varieties: Shiraz and Grenache. These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhône but are now considered leading examples of the varieties in their own right.

At Charles Melton Wines, great emphasis is placed on the quality of fruit. All grapes are dry grown and harvested from the winery's own 80 acres of prime Barossa vineyard land, as well as from a select group of grapegrowers. Yields are extremely low with often only one tonne per half hectare and the vineyards are truly old with many exceeding 80 years.

A number of key techniques are important to the Rose of Virginia. Cold soak on skins followed by clear settling of the juice helps heighten the aromatics, and co-fermentation of the major varieties delivers the superb hue. A six to eight week cool alcoholic fermentation is followed, before bottling to retain as much youthful zest and life as possible.

Fragrant Turkish Delight bouquet, with a little pepper and spice to help keep it grown up. The usual unique vibrant cerise tint adds colour to the table. Balanced acidity, tannin and weight give the usual Rose of Virginia combination of richness yet crispness. It will retain its fruit sweetness and perfume over a couple of years at least.

Chateau d Esclans Whispering Angel Rose 2017 (1x75cl)

£20.45

Chateau D'astros Rose 2016 (1x 75cl)

Chateau Gassier PdM 2015 - Nov 2016 Decanter review

Château Gassier is situated 25 Kms from the ancient town of Aix en Provence, at the foot of Sainte Victoire mountain. A specialist producer of rosé wines, this 40 hectare property blends Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache to produce classic, refreshing Provencal wines.

Le Pas du Moine is a very clear rosé with delicate pink hints. The aromas are Intense with floral (blackcurrant buds), exotic (lychee, passion fruit, fresh mango), pink grapefruit, red berries (redcurrant, fresh wild strawberries) aromas and a few notes of spices.  On the palate a great freshness and a nice balance. Beautiful length, a lot of finesse and minerality. Great roundness! This wine should be served between 10-12°C and is a perfect match with exotic Asian meals (eg minced beef with Thai basil, tuna tataki, sushi).

Chateau Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2016 (1x75cl)

Miraval Rose 2016 - Aug 2017 Decanter review Roses

Miraval Rose 2016 - Aug 2017 Decanter review Celebrities

Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All of the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque village. Château Miraval has 50 hectares of grapes grown on the estate. The terraced vineyards are at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days which in turn help the grapes retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality, because they help regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don't. At harvest, the grapes are hand picked in the coolness of the morning and hand sorted twice to ensure that only the best grapes go into making the rosé.

Château Miraval has 50 hectares of grapes grown on the estate. The majority of the fruit for this wine comes from the Château's three best parcels - Muriers, Longue and Romarin. The remainder is sourced from within the Correns region, just north of Brignoles in the heart of Provence. The terraced vineyards are at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days which in turn help the grapes retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality because they help regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don't.

Grapes were harvested by hand in the cool, early hours of the morning and hand sorted twice to ensure that only the best grapes made it into the rosé. The Cinsault, Grenache and Rolle parcels were gently pressed to extract just the right amount of colour, while the Syrah was made using the saignée method. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks separately and then blended post fermentation. Additionally, the Rolle was put into 228 litre barrels, with occasional battonage to add texture and complexity.

Beautiful, pale, petal-pink colour, elegant with bright nuances. A beautiful aromatic expression with aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers, refreshing acidity, with great minerality and a saline finish.

Chateaux Ollieux Romanis Corbieres Rose 2016 (6x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of their Top 30 Rosés (see blue link below)

Ollieux Romanis 2016 - Aug 2017 Decanter review

Ollieux Romanis is a magnificent property with a huge winery nestling at the centre of its vines. The winery and wine cellar were built in 1896 from stone quarried from within the property and they still stand proud today. The first parcel of Carignan was planted in 1896 and it is still used for production of grapes today.

The grapes are harvested manually and are macerated before fermentation for between 3 and 6 hours.  This helps to ensure the delicate colour of the wine. It is pressed very lightly and the fermentation is monitored to assist with the prevention of any unecessary bitterness in the flavours of the finished wine.  

The wine has a pale pink colour with aromas of orange and red flowers.  The flavours are of wild strawberry with hints of pepper, flowers and herbs.  This wine goes extremely well with grilled chicken or calamari dishes.  This wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Please note - Chateaux Ollieux Romanis uses organic farming methods and is undergoing conversion to fully certified organic status.  

£65.10

De Martino Gallardia del Itata Cinsault Rose 2014 (1x75cl)

Taking a page out of Provence’s book, this Cinsault rosé from Chile is bang on trend with its pale salmon hue. Lots of lovely red fruit flavours and delicate floral notes. It is bone dry with lots of zippy acidity and a weightier mouth feel than you might expect.

£10.70

De Martino Gallardia del Itata Cinsault Rose 2016 (6x75cl)

The 2016 vintage was awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of their Top 30 Rosés (see blue links below)

De Martino Gallardia Cinsault Rose 2016 - Aug 2017 Decanter review

The De Martino family came from Italy to Chile in 1934 and settled in Islade Maipo (D.O.Maipo). Today, having achieved 80 years of winemaking history, the winery combines the experience of the family's third generation – represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino - with the dynamism and vision of the well-established fourth generation, where Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, together with the winemakers Marcelo Retamal and Eduardo Jordán, are leading the way with the winery’s new projects.

De Martino’s grapes are always harvested manually. They use only indigenous yeast for fermentation which is strictly controlled and carried out in stainless steel tanks.  The grapes undergo just a short maceration to preserve the eventual wine’s delicate colour.  The wine is then aged for 6 months in stainless steel before bottling.

This is a pale Cinsault with delicate red confit fruits, notes of garrigue herbs and the merest whisper of pepper. Agreeable medium-bodied rose that is at its best when served lightly chilled.  This wine is a good match for turbot and razor clams or indeed any of your favourite seafood.

 

£68.90

Domaine Des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre Rose 2016 (1x 75cl)

Situated in the village of Bué in the heart of Sancerre, Christian Thirot’s white and rosé are classic expressions of cool-climate Sauvignon and Pinot Noir respectively. Production is small, with a ''hands on'' approach in the vineyard and minimal handling in the winery.

Pale salmon pink in colour with a subtle nose of wild strawberries. On the palate the wine is delicate and soft with elegant red fruit character and well balanced acidity. Clean and dry with a crisp, refreshing finish.

The rosé wine will bring spicy touches to exotic dishes such as chicken cooked with pineapple and thai rice. It also goes well with charcuterie and chicken or seafood salad.
