Starting with the trendy stuff from Provence, rosé's spiritual home in the South of France, the highly sought after and instagrammed Whispering Angel. Get the phone out - the must have drink this Summer! Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie's Chateau Mirival is equally well known as a trendy wine, but like the Angel, it is maddeningly delicious! 'By Ott' by Domaine Ott is the original premium Rose before the 'Gram and Brangelina started having their say. This is an entry level wine made from younger vines to try to introduce a new generation of Rose fiends.
Moving down towards France's Riviera, Nicholas Idiart 'Esperance' Rose is just a beautifully smashable wine. A new release and one of only 4 recent recipiets of a top score of 94 Points in the Southern France Wine Guide; Maison Lorgeril O de Rose (with vinolok glass closure instead of cork making it a great water bottle after consumption!).
Finishing with a curveball from the South of Italy, Scala Ciro Gaglioppo Rosato is our new favourite rosé from Calabria, bright crunchy fruit and an almost lurid colour! Totally delicious. STSWine
