Single serve rosè from Aldi? Yes please!

Aldi rose wine

When buying Provencal rosè and Prosecco on a budget, Aldi (UK) has come out on top lately. While they are not trophy winning wines, they seem to have struck the right formula of sourcing these wines. And at a sweet spot not quite achieved by the larger supermarkets. 

Here are two single serve rosè surprises from their range:

Aldi wine Fleurs de prairie

Aldi Fleurs de Prairie Côtes de Provencé– I have presented both the 2018 vintage and the 2017 to one of my tasting groups and both times this Aldi wine has gotten the thumbs up for taste and price. There are some spicy cream notes amongst the melon and strawberry fruit and it is crisp. Although a tad firm on the finish, it delivers flavour and some complexity for £1.99. And the empty bottle makes for a great bud vase!!!

Aldi Castellore Frizzante Rosato – canned wine. I am beginning to be of the opinion that canned wines need to have some fizz to keep them fresh after tasting a few without bubbles. This wine is bubbly and it is light. The sweetness designation on the back says it is ‘dry’ and it probably fits in the upper end of the range as it does have some sugar sweetness. An alcohol level of 10% does seem to indicate that sugar presence as well. The flavours here are simple cherry/berry fruit but fun enough for the £1.69 per can price.
