how to pair your favourite rose wine

If you are a partaker of rose wine, you don’t need an introduction to its lovely pink colour or fruity taste with flowery notes. If you are yet to sample it, you will like it if you like a taste that is lighter than that of red wine and incorporates flowery notes. Almost every wine bar in Dublin stocks various brands of rose wine.

What Are The Best Brands of Rose Wine?

Also known as summer water, this blush-coloured wine is the staple drink for the season. There are different brands of it and some are better than others.

What Does Rose Wine Go With?

Having found the best brands, you want to get rose wine pairing right. Its light texture makes it ideal for pairing with appetizers and desserts rather than main meals, especially those that have meat. It goes well with cheeses and cured meats. It is also ideal for serving with fruit and vegetable salads as well as sweet desserts like cake.
