The Rise of Rosé

Once upon a time, not so long ago, rosé wines were something to drink abroad, writes Robert Boutflower, sipped on the terrace whilst overlooking the Meditteranean.

These novelties were perfect with lunch, in the sun, very much on holiday. Then something changed – rosé became, well, sought-after. Every winemaker was making one. Suddenly you had rosé from every corner of the globe. Pink was "in", so Chardonnay lovers defected to Calfornian Crush (or White Zinfandel Blush to be more accurate) and even Pinot Grigio, which to be fair is clothed in a dusky pink skin, was suddenly available in white and pink.
