The acclaimed wine merchant reveal their top picks for sunny sipping

Independent Wine Merchant, Wine Utopia, have put together a concise selection of their favourite rosè wines to enjoy during the warmer months.


From classic organic tipples to a deliciously different pinot noir rosé – Wine Utopia’s rosé selection features: Lieu Perdus Pinot Noir Rosé, Pays D’oc, France (light, dry, pretty pink and packed full of creamy red fruit flavours); Château Gairoird Rosé, Côtes de Provence, France (low calorie and organic, this rosé is gastronomic and elegant with sweet fruit aromas and flavours of ripe peaches on the palate); and Domaine d’Hondrat Cuvée Elle & Lui Rosé, Languedoc, France (an elegant wine with subtle aromas of white fruits and tangerine notes on the nose, perfectly matched with seafood).


Why not enjoy the May Bank Holiday weekend with a quality bottle of the pink stuff? The team at Wine Utopia have come up trumps with this concise offering that ticks all the boxes on both flavour and price. Sip on the likes of: Cape Margaret Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Australia (think a concentrated fruit profile of mulberry, blackcurrant and dark cherries with notes, enhanced by classic Margaret River mint and tobacco leaf notes), and Domaine de Vedilhan Viognier, Pays D’oc, France (a fantastic example of a viognier – honeysuckle on the nose; richly textured and nicely balanced with flavours of apricots).


For the uninitiated, Wine Utopia makes choosing wine accessible; their range varies from great ‘everyday’ wines to mid-range and fine wines, along with show-stopping sparkling wines and dessert wines.
