With sunshine slowly stretching its way into our lives, Catwalkschoolgates has been itching for a glass of something special. Thanks to the fabulous ladies at The House Wine, we think we’ve found just the thing.
Sarah Rogers and Gwen McCann of The House Wine have one mission– “to expand your wine horizons by carefully sourcing a changing selection of interesting wines for your enjoyment”. They take rosé seriously and have tasted literally hundreds (tough job) to select the ones that they feel hit the feel-good spot. Their criteria for choosing wines is first and foremost taste- they have to be delicious! Beyond that they look for wines that are naturally made, therefore low in chemical additives, and wines that are lighter in alcohol content… all of which means the wines are kinder to your system and won’t leave you feeling distinctly under the weather the next day.
Gwen has given us her pick of three rosés to see us through the summer sun:
Domaine Sautereau, Sancerre £15 – Sancerre, in the Loire Valley, is famous for its Sauvignon Blanc wines therefore a rosé from here is a bit of a rarity. Sancerre rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes and also appeals to the gentlemen- still delicate but with more flavour and weight. Great with food, this is one to share over a summer supper.
Domaine la Colombette £9.25 – this wine is light in every way – it’s low in alcohol, has delicate fruit flavours and is a pretty, pale pink. A perfect wine for drinks with girlfriends, it slips down almost too nicely and is one you can sip all night long. It is our best-seller and not like anything you can buy on the high-street; once tasted you will be hooked!
Whispering Angel, Angel Chateau d’Esclans £16.50 – a wine that has established itself as one of the most recognizable luxury rosés from Provence. Beautiful wine in every way; pale pretty pink, beautiful packaging and lovely, gentle flavours that transport you to a beachside restaurant in the South of France. The perfect wine for dinner with friends or just to celebrate the end of a long week- if you are looking for something special the magnums are divine.
We can’t wait to try it… oh, it looks like someone already did!
