How to pair Rosé wine with vegetarian food
Published by Daphne Chave on 09/07/2019
This year, for the first time, Roberson Wine has won a Highly Commended award in the International Wine Challenge's Rosé Specialist Merchant of the Year competition!
Pulling together one of the UK’s most exciting ranges of rosé wines was no mean feat, but what’s the point of having all these award-winning wines if there’s no food to enjoy them with? The great thing about rosé, and often overlooked, is how well the subtle flavours pair with food - especially vegetarian dishes.
So we've pulled together some delicious veggie recipes to pair with 6 rosés that we feel landed us that coveted award. All these recipes lend themselves to alfresco dining, and don’t be afraid to get those veggies on the BBQ! Afterall, the BBQ isn’t just for overcooked (or undercooked) sausages!
With a nose full of fresh wild strawberries and a palate with subtle hints of rhubarb, we think a recipe with a nod to the tropical fruits would be a perfect fit. The grapes for this wine are harvested at night, to retain all the natural freshness in the fruit. So, recipes with lots of crisp fruit like watermelon work well.
With a direct pressing process, Château Minuty was the first to give this pale colour to its rosés. A light rosé with aromas of orange peels and red currant that will go very well with pizzas to remind us of the Mediterranean Sea. Trust me, nothing can beat the combination of fresh ingredients and aromatic wine.
Located at the East of Napa Valley, this natural wine is an interesting one! With a blend like this, the characteristics of the wine are perfect for enjoying both Trousseau's texture and Zinfandel's spices. This complex rosé is the reincarnation of a juicy watermelon of summer, pleasant notes with salad!
With this 100% English wine, you will no longer have to look overseas for your rosé fix. This Surrey Pinot Noir will satisfy your summer expectations with pink grapefruits and fresh strawberries! And thanks to lees ageing, the palate has a creamy texture. And what could be better than English asparagus and rosé at a picnic?
Want to escape the city? Why not turn to a biodynamic rosé from Greece? Very old vines producing rosé wines with great acidity as well as wonderful aromas of pomegranate and cherries! I can only recommend Greek meals for a perfect combination.
This popular rosé is an interesting blend of different grapes from La Motte en Provence. A perfect bouquet of red fruits, peaches and blossom orange! A long finish with hints of tangy lemon. Something to delight your taste buds with exotic pairing!
