Valentine’s Day is almost here! If you are planning on celebrating with some perfectly pink rose wine, then take a look at our top picks from Morrisons this month…
Friexenet Vintage Cava Rose
On offer for £5.99 between 14 January and 17 February 2013 [was £12.99].
This sensational salmon-pink fizz is elegant with light, crisp strawberry flavours. It’s delicious berry-scented notes and refreshing palate makes it ideal served as an aperitif or on its own –perfect as a romantic after dinner treat!
This is an amazing price for a quality wine. It not only tastes delicious but has just the right amount of fizz, making it a great alternative to Champagne.
Romio Pinot Grigio Blush
With a fabulous floral bouquet, this is a gorgeously light and refreshing pink anyone will fall in love with. Delightfully crisp, and packed with cranberries and raspberries, this wine is wonderful with salads, prawns and light snacks.
Les Richoises Grenache Cinsault Rose
On offer for £4.49 between 7 January and 10 February 2013 [was £4.99].
Classy Languedoc style rose – fruity but with a steely backbone. This is a high quality, crafted rose full of strawberry and raspberry fruit, with lavender and even peachy aromas. Finished off with an edge of earthiness that stops it being overly sweet, this excellent French drop is best served as an aperitif or with pastries.
This pretty pink has a delicate fruity aroma with hints of strawberry. Keep your meal simple with this dainty tipple – you’ll really enjoy its flavours if you drink it with plain grilled white fish or a chicken salad. It’s also lovely as a pre-dinner tipple – an ideal starter to a Valentine’s date.
Via Cupola Pinot Grigio Rose
A divine salmon pink rose from Hungary with the taste of sun-drenched plums. It’s best with slightly spicy food, and would be very good with goulash, a mild curry or even a Moroccan tagine. And if you’re a fan of white Pinot Grigio, this is the drop for you. It has the same super flavours, but is lighter and crisper, especially if you drink it from chilled glasses.
