Wine of the Week: Taste the Difference Chilean Rosé

By The editorial team Published on 24 June 2011

Wine of the Week: Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Chilean Rosé cabernet sauvignon Colchagua Valley, Chile Alc. 12.5% from £5.99 Where? Sainsbury's

Between the Andews and the Pacific Ocean lies Chile's Colchagua Valley, a wine making region which produces especially intense, flavourful grapes including the cabernet sauvignon's that went into making Sainsbury's Chilean Rosé. It's vegan friendly too!

Bella - the hostess -
I often struggle with what wine to serve to vegan friends so it's really useful when it's printed on the back of the bottle. This elegant rose is perfect for veggies too as it compliments flavoursome vegetarian dishes and BBQs. This wine would work absolutely splendily with crunchy satay skewers and any Asian flavours.

Sookie - the lightweight -
Rosé works for me. It goes down easily and tastes smooth. This one is a bit too easy to drink perhaps. I like it but I'm not like "WOW" get me another glass.

Jules - the wine lover -
Smooth, fruity rather than floral and summery. There's nothing not to like about this Chilean wine. The price point is encouraging too. The strawberry notes come through first followed by a lingering plum jam and cherry. Nice.

Nico - the typical boy -

I'm still not convinced I'd ever willingly order a rosé but if someone gave me a glass of this I'd be secretly pleased. I enjoyed it, I can image having a bottle of this on a date with a nice take-away Thai. Girls would like that.
