The best thing to come from Mr & (the ex) Mrs Pitt
Usually if I find out a wine or spirit is in anyway connected to a celebrity I avoid it like the plague, as they’ll put their name to anything to make a dime. However this rose continued to pop up in my monthly wine magazine & it other press article recommendations, in the end I caved & brought myself a bottle & I’m thrilled that I did. Rose isn’t my wine of choice but during the summer months, when hosting get togethers it’s unavoidable, to have at least one offering of rose & I reach for this one every time. It’s a real crowd pleaser. It’s fresh but not overly acidic, the stone fruits give it a rounded, creamy, lingering finish. Moreish. Most rose are led by strawberries & are two a penny which is why this one stands out, it’s up there with the Whispering Angels etc. There are very subtle floral aromas which match the delicate, pale pink hue perfectly. I tend to purchase this elsewhere as I prefer to buy it as a magnum. However you won’t find it at a better price than buying it via Tesco, in the standard 75cl bottles, when it’s part of the 25% off deal. Not forgetting all the points available too. The price tag might be a little off putting to those who solely purchase the supermarket wines but once you’ve tried it, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth it. It’s perfect for a treat, a gift or special occasion. The bottle is also beautifully designed & compliments an elegant table setting in or outdoors. I also like that it’s a cork top rather than a screw cap. Unlike other Roseś it also ages well. I’ve kept bottles for up to three years after purchasing & they’ve been absolutely fine. In future I’ll be topping my wine fridge up with 6 bottles whenever the wine deal is current. Thank you Tesco for adding this to your line & making it more readily available. Hopefully if it’s a hit with your customers we’ll see the magnum on your shelves soon.
