It's 12 degrees outside, is it time to chill the Rose?
A bit like the first cut of the grass, the first chilled bottle of Rose in the garden is absolute heaven. And the sun is definitely warming up, so if you can find a sheltered spot, I think you're good to go! I've always loved a Provencal style Rose, so finding something similar from Argentina was a little tricky, with many still producing a darker, fruitier style. For this reason, we don't have a huge selection of Rose wines, but the ones we do have are cracking. I'm toasting the start of the Rose season with the Recoleta Rosado from Mauricio Lorca. Produced from Argentina's Criolla grape, the Recoleta is elegant, with fresh summer fruits, light floral notes and a dry crisp finish. Delightful!
