Kylie Minogue Rosé

Kylie Minogue rose

Who makes it?

Kylie Minogue rosé is part of the collection made by Benchmark Drinks who are making a name for themselves distributing some celebrity brands. Celebrities from all walks of life including: Ian Botham, Graham Norton and Sarah Jessica Parker. Since the release of this rosé, they have also released a Cotes de Provence rosé as well.

I confess to being a Kylie fan since Impossible Princess was released. Of course, when it comes to wine I don’t let names or owners sway my judgement. This is a well made wine for the price. Don’t take my word though, it was also well received in a rosé tasting I ran recently.

How do they make it?

This is a ‘Southern France’ wine and labelled as ‘vin de France’. Interestingly, it is 80% Carignan with the rest being Cabernet Sauvignon. It has had 3 months on lees which gives it a pastry spice aroma and a polished texture in the mouth. It is a dry rosé with about 4 grams of residual sugar to keep it balanced and to add a little to that fruit weight.

What does it taste like?

That time on lees has benefited this wine greatly. It is undoubtedly creamy on the nose and in the mouth. That cream adds a roundness to the floral and strawberry notes. There is a silky appeal under the fresh crisp acid. This elegantly proportioned pink certainly has plenty going for it.

What to drink with it?

A delicious drop needing nothing but your favourite glass to be irresistible. However, if you did want to have something to eat with it, an antipasti platter is superb or try some caramelised onion tartlets.

Cheese?

Good with brie or manchego.
