Not to beat around the bush, this is a good rosé, and better than plenty of rosés with a much heftier alcoholic content. If you’re having a barbecue this summer and you’re looking for something to wash down the burgers, you could do a lot worse than this. It’s got a good rosé colour and the kind of ‘body’ that wines normally get from alcohol. It’s also got a little bit of sparkle on pouring, and a citrus flavour that balances the sweetness.

It’s recently gone on sale exclusively in Marks & Spencer along with a white. Both hail from the McGuigan family vineyards in New South Wales, which are some of Australia’s oldest. They’re both great-looking wines, and it’s good to see producers making a real effort to make low-alcohol drinks that look like you might actually want to drink. As with the white, the label for this rosé carries an intriguing pattern of leaves, butterflies and flowers that forms into a face if you look long enough.
