    You have probably noticed that rosé wine has steadily been growing in popularity. What was once a drink you might only enjoy while on holiday in the summer has now become a year round choice for wine lovers.

    This growth has been down to an overall improvement in quality - it has coincided with a shift away from sweeter styles to drier, more elegant examples.  Another factor is the photo-friendly colour. This is especially true in the USA, where rosé sales have grown enormously, driven by brands pushing an aspirational lifestyle with rosé at its centre.

    France remains the largest producer of rosé wine in the world and has set the template for what a modern rosé should be. The Côte de Provence established itself as a region dedicated to the style and it's popularity has seen many other winemakers seek to emulate the pale colour and refreshing acidity that make it so appealing.

    Rosé is still a summer essential, and can be very versatile to match with food. We've collected some of our favourites and new arrivals to offer you a sensational selection of rosé wines from France, Italy, Austria and Portugal. The focus is on refreshment and the wines here are dry and crisp. They retain the  structure of a dry white while adding a juicy dollop of summer berry fruit.  So if you're looking to enjoy more rosé or keen to discover something new, this case is ideal for you.

    Santa Tresa Organic Rose IGP 2020 

    Santa Tresa is situated in the commune of Vittoria, in the south east of Sicily. Their vineyards are all organic. This wine made from Nero d'Avola and Frappato grapes has lovely notes of berries on the nose, with hints of violets and roses. The palate is elegant and persistent, with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit and excellent acidity. I'd enjoy this with plate of calamari.

    Herdade de Sao Miguel Rosé 2020

    Alexandre Relvas started in 1997, and his two sons Alexandre Jr and António  run the show at this excellent winery in Redondo in the Alentejo region of Portugal. They have crafted an elegant, pale rosé full of berry fruit and a little bit of tropical character. Lots of concentration of flavour and minerality from time on lees (yeast). This would be lovely with fish tacos.

    Amie X Rose 2021

    This is a new project borne out of Covid 19 lockdown from Will Sandbach, Abbie Roden and Hermione Underwood. Their tagline is ' A wine for friends, by friends' and they've collaborated to bring us this delightful Provence-style rose from Languedoc in the South of France.

    The very stylish and Instagram friendly bottle contains a super appealing wine made from a blend of organic Grenache and Cinsault. On the palate it is light and crisp with citrus and strawberry characteristics. One to be seen with - but would also be great with a seared tuna steak.

    Judith Beck, Pink 2021

    Judith Beck is winemaker driven by her desire to create wines that reflect the place they are made - she lives at her vineyard. Her rose is made with local grapes Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch, using a holistic approach and biodynamic techniques. Dominated by red cherries, raspberries and light peaches, it's crunchy and dry with great acidity and a hint of spice on the finish. I'd go for this if you're wanting a bit more complexity in your wine. It'd pair well with a plate of charcuterie.

    Quinta de Raza, Vinho Verde Rosado 2021

    A deeper coloured rosé from Minho in Portugal's Vinho Verde region. This has a  vibrant character from the native grape varieties used. The wine is bursting with red berry fruit and shows a slight spritz, as well as an intense freshness. A superb lunchtime rose with a grilled cauliflower steak.

    Izadi, Larrosa Rioja Rosado 2021

    Izadi is an innovative and modern winery in Rioja Alavese. The Grenache fruit for this wine comes from old vines planted at the highest altitude in Rioja. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry and red cherries combine with notes of white peach and apple. Refreshing acidity on the palate leads to a crisp, elegant and surprisingly long finish. This one is a little stronger at 14.5%, so best suited to sipping with some paella as the sun sets.

    All of these wines can be bought as a case, with a £6.50 saving here.
