The Summer 2022 Rosé Guide

by Lauren Power

Searching your Summer Rosé? Let this be your guide. 

Rosé wines vary so greatly as they can contain a variety of different grapes, are produced in a range of styles, and originate from various regions. Because of this, their taste, scent, and look can vary significantly

Rather than getting overwhelmed by the options, read on to learn more about some of our top picks for Summer Rosés and find your next go-to bottle.

Wines of Carlos Basso Malbec Rosé - Dos Fincas

This wine is perfect for fans of a classic Malbec. Expect the plum, blackberry, and blueberry notes you love in a Malbec to shine through in this rosé. The bright cherry colours mixed with the scents of fresh fruits, and vanilla make this rosé a delicious experience all around.

Craving the refreshing taste of rosé without the alcohol? Jukes 8 is perfumed and refreshing with a dry finish and scintillating flavours of melon, pomegranate, pear, rhubarb, and apple.

How it works: Fill a glass with chilled still, sparkling, or tonic water. Pour half a bottle of Jukes, and adjust to taste with more Jukes or more water.
