I was pleased to be invited to the Meikles Grape Vine wine tasting session this week. As Rose Wines were on the menu we all had to dress in pink to compliment the wine. I managed to dress all in pink and the choice made for a colourful turn out of colourful people. We sampled seven rose wines in total - each very different. some were South African and some Portugese. It was a delightful evening and we were able to expand our knowlege of the wine.
Rose has always been labled as a summer drink - and a woman's drink. The wines on off that evening were not the normal sweet roses but mostly dry with a sophisticated flare.
