Rosé Wine

Rosé is not just a mix of red and white wine… To make rosé wine, the skin of red grapes is immersed in the wine for a short amount of time (typically anywhere from 2 to 20 hours). The sooner the grape skins are removed, the lighter the rosé will be; the longer they sit in their wine bath, the deeper pink the rosé.

A chilled rosé wine is an ideal summer drink, and what better accompaniment than great cheese?  Rosé wine is characteristically mineral, fruity, often with a slight bitterness like the pith of citrus fruit. Goat cheese has an acidic, tangy flavour that pairs well with wines that are bright and have acidity, just like rosé. Soft goat cheese pairs best, but you can also experiment with aged varieties.

We particularly recommend the French rosé Chateau Montaud, Cote de Provence, enjoyed with Brightwell Ash; a delicious British ripened goats cheese which is coated in ash, similar to many French style goats cheeses.
