The Oddbins Take

Colline was a discerning woman, she'd tut when served caviar with anything other than a bone spoon, she would often send back her medium-medium rare New York Strip with complaints it was overdone or that "the kiss of life could revive that cow." However, this was rarely a problem for Colline's friends, they'd make apologetic eyes at waiters, but their lives were rarely affected by her exceptional palate.

That is, apart from when trying to find a rosé for Colline. Every wine was too dry or too sweet, too dark or too ‘this is just Chardonnay you put food colouring in!’ It seemed that every lazy summer afternoon was ruined by Colline’s admonishment of the quality of the wine. Eventually, her friends approached legendary Rhône producer Rhonéa, asking if they had a rosé that could satisfy their friend. The wine they received was lively and beautifully balanced and wonderfully quaffable with buckets of flavour and refreshing acidity. Colline was so charmed with the wine, that she now holds onto the bottle a bit longer than is perhaps socially acceptable, in fact her friends often find themselves saying “pass the rosé Colline!”

    The Rosé Wine Lover - Gift Set

    As low as: £22.85

    Perhaps this is too specific but if you happen to be buying a wine gift for Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler, we feel this might be the wine duo for him. For, of course, Steven famously proclaimed, "Pink it's my new obsession, yes, pink it's not even a question. Pink on the lips of your lover, cause Pink is the love you discover!" We can only assume Steven was singing about these two fantastically fresh and lifted rosé wines and what excellent taste he has. Even if you don't know Steven, this gift set would suit anyone who appreciates pink...Maybe you know Carey Hart?
