DRINK OF THE WEEK
21st May 2018
Taste the Difference Bordeaux Rosť
Sainsbury's £6.50 (on offer)
Drinker Rating 90
The rosť revolution continues, in the old days a decent amount was sold in the summer but volumes have ballooned in recent years and show no signs of stopping - even sales in winter are growing.
Bordeaux has been producing decent pink for aeons and this is a belter - particulary when looking at the current offer price.
This is all it should be, straightforward but with a lovely hint of rose petal on the nose, in the mouth it's bursting with fresh cranberry acidity and vibrant raspberry - this is a belter for your Bank Holiday BBQ.
