Stop and sip the rosé

We’re having a little love affair with rosé wines at the moment, and have fallen head over heels with these … each perfect for a summer romance

This ‘little darling’ charms with notes of watermelon, papaya and strawberry. Gabriëlskloof Rosebud Rosé is a dry, light and deliciously moreish Provençal-style rosé, with equal amounts of Syrah and Viognier. It’s described as the ‘little darling’ of Gabriëlskloof’s Estate Range, and is lovely to drink by itself, but also pairs well with light dishes. Buy it online for around R80 a bottle.

Who doesn’t love an Italian? We’re besotted with VOGA Rosa … a dry-but-fruity rosé with touches of red currant and strawberry, pomegranate and melon (lovely with soft cheeses, seafood and salads), Love, too, the chic, reusable bottle. Simply remove the label and use the cylinder glass bottle for juices or water. R169 from Tops and Makro. Details: bottegasa.co.za • One of our favourite pink bubblies is The Krone Vintage Night Nectar Demi-Sec Rosé – a lustrous pink-copper bubbly, it’s refreshing and fruit-forward, and is delicious with prawns grilled on the coals, with a strawberry cream cake, with rose-water macarons (there’s a Valentine’s meal for you!). Around R150 at your local bottle store. Details: kronemcc.com • It’s new, it’s already scooped a double gold award, it’s chic and captivating. We’re drinking the just launched Zandvliet Shiraz Rosé, made in the famed Robertson Valley of Roses. All gold-pink, rose petals, melon, strawberries and raspberry coulis, it’s perfect with seafood, fish and light pasta dishes. Around R85 from good bottle stores.

Details: zandvliet.co.za The prettiest, pinkest, most delish rosé is what we’re wanting this Valentine’s Day … and we found it. The 2019 vintage of Perlé de Jean is all ripe, fresh berries, citrus zest and melon, and a froth of tiny bubbles. It’s magnificent with prawns (our meal of choice on the 14th), but lovely, too, with chicken and summer salads. You’ll find it for around R69.99 at Checkers, Makro, Food Lover’s Market and selected Spar & [email protected] stores.
