Bill's Rosé Wine Blog

Bill has a passion for wine and was introduced to dry Rosé wines thirty or so years ago in the South of France.  He had the idea of specialising in offering top quality Rosé wines within the UK, but it took a while before it could be realised. The wines chosen combine modern methods with the traditional skill of the winemakers resulting in superb wines, tasting just as good here in the UK as they do abroad!
Bill had forecast the expanding market for good Rosés so he registered Rose-wine.com and negotiated some of the best, most characteristic wines, at an early stage.

As a UK wide online supplier, Rose-wine.com has now built a reputation for great products and service.

Temperature & Rosé

I'm quite often asked, "What is the best serving temperature for our wines?"  The broad answer is to serve at whatever temperature you prefer, but I can give you some guidelines to help. 

Our Rosés are very well made so they should be enjoyable at up to room temperature without showing any faults.  I suggest serving quite cool, somewhere between 8 and 12 C. as this suits most tastes.  However, the aroma of the wine may not be as full and fruity as it becomes when the wine warms up.  Likewise the taste can move towards being somewhat less dry and more fruity as the wine warms, a nice effect, quite pronounced in Rosés.  Stemmed glasses will prevent the wine warming quickly as will chilling the glasses first. 

And what about ice?  Controversial for some, I have no problem with it, especially if serving Rosé on a warm day.  A nice touch can be to make up the ice in advance from bottled water, perhaps selecting a French still water to make ice for French wines.  (The same applies to ice with good Scotch Whisky - best use Scottish water for a soft taste).  Ordinary tap water ice is fine for the ice bucket to keep the wine cool, but not too cold.  

Hope this helps!
