If, like us, you love a cold glass of crisp Rosé on a hot summer’s day, then you need to know about the spectacular value grape bound to fly off Aldi’s shelves once word about the quality of the bargain bottle spreads. (So, right now.)
Delish reports that the supermarket’s £5.99 in-house rosé, Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé, has won a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge. The prestigious contest rates wines against each other regardless of price, and this year, the “strawberry, white fruit and subtle spice” aromas of Aldi’s contender made it score impressively high.
At under £6, it’s the perfect wine to pick up for all those impromptu summer picnics and BBQs without denting your holiday budget. Don’t like rosé? Aldi’s Lot 25 Prosecco (£9.99) and limited-edition Organic Prosecco (£7.99) also won medals at the international awards.
