The Best Rosé Wines to Try Right nowSummer temperatures are finally warming our lush island, and the whole of Ireland is donning Espadrilles, and leaving the house without as much as a cardigan. Could we really have a proper summer starting now? Well, to that we say, YES! No matter what the mercury or Met Éireann may tell us tomorrow, let’s just go with it and continue to celebrate the season through Rosé-coloured glasses. Rosé continues to experience an insurgence of popularity; clearly part of the appeal is this distinctively pink wine's blushing colour. How can one resist such a beautifully photogenic guest at your summer soiree? Hashtags like #roseallday #yeswayrose and #brose (for that guy not afraid to swill a pink wine with swagger) populate social media. There's even a popular attraction in New York City called The Rosé Mansion -- part wine bar, part amusement park. It is an interactive tasting experience of rosé, which leads you through corridors of art installations tailor-made for Instagram. The tour ends at the top floor bar which boasts over 100 different rosés.
? The Rosé MansionIn the past, many a wine aficionado snubbed rosé, considering it a bit déclassé or perhaps not complicated enough. “Too sweet,” they said. But these days, rosé is having a moment and a movement. One that says simply, “Hey, don’t take me too seriously!” And that’s just one of the many reasons why we love it! Wines Direct have carefully chosen an exemplary collection of rosé for you to enjoy this summer season (as well as all year long). Click here for the Best Rosé’s to try right now. Introducing a few of our pink-hued beauties: Olivares Rosado is a full-bodied Rosado from Bodegas Olivares. Don’t be fooled by its delightfully retro and simplistic typography on the hip label or the wine’s incredible value—this Spanish Rosado may be the most sophisticated guest at your garden party (no offence to your tribe). If you like a little sparkle in your rosé check out an outstanding, press reviewed splendour from Italy - Le Contesse Pinot Rose Cuvee Brut. A subtle pink colour with shades of violet and persistent and fine bubbles ending in a full, rich palate. An ideal aperitif. How about wine for the beach from the South of France? Domaine Bergerie De L’Hortus Rosé exudes ripe, red summer fruits and gives a crisp and zesty finish. One of many vegan-friendly wines available from Wines Direct.
