About Time’s Guide to: Drinking Pink This Mother’s Day By Alicia Grimshaw
If you’re reaching for a bottle of Rosé for Mother’s Day, we’ve discovered five unmissable pink-hued tipples; from non-alcoholic to a Prosecco alternative, it’s time to grab the fancy glassware:
The Lowdown: Meteoric wine producer, Domaine du Météore has expanded its range with a new organic Sparkling Rosé Wine, Le Cratère. Le Cratère is an organic ‘methode champenoise’ sparkling rosé wine from Syrah grapes, which are all grown inside the 200-metre-wide meteorite crater from which Domaine du Météore takes its name.
Price: £28 per bottle. £33 per bottle with wooden bird box. £168 for case of 6
The Lowdown: Van Hunks is a range of South African sparkling wine equivalents to Champagne from the viticultural paradise of Stellenbosch. Handcrafted using a traditional method identical to Méthode Champenoise, Van Hunks Rosé MCC is bottle fermented in small batches and matured in contact with the lees for approximately 30 months. The joyful Van Hunks Rosé MCC Sparkling Wine is a combination of Pinot Noir and the elegance of Chardonnay, with the addition of South Africa’s Pinotage.
Price: £20 for 75cl
The Lowdown: Lady A Rosé is a classically pale and elegant rosé made at Château la Coste, Provence in partnership with Soho House and their Master Sommelier, Vincent Gasnier. Lady A is made from the traditional rosé blend of Grenache and Cinsault, with notes of citrus, pink grapefruit, peach and raspberry.
Price: £14.95 for 75cl or £30 for 150c
The Lowdown: If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic option, try Oddbird Sparkling Rosé wine, liberated from alcohol. A silky and well-balanced blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes with gentle hints of Summer Berries, Citrus and Granny Smith apples, Oddbird Rosé is rather dry and all-natural in colour.
The Lowdown: Nyetimber’s beautiful sunset-pink Multi-Vintage rosé has us dreaming of long, sunny days. Boasting a vibrant antique rose colour, the rosé offers a creamy round texture with refreshing redcurrant, raspberry and cherry flavours. A real treat to sip and savour on Mother’s Day.
