Take time to stop and sip the rosés

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.

• Who doesn’t love an Italian? We’re besotted with VOGA Rosa… a dry-but-fruity rosé with touches of redcurrant and strawberry, pomegranate and melon (lovely with soft cheeses, seafood and salads). We’re in love too, with 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. 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.

• 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. Details: gabrielskloof.co.za.
