In The Observer, David Williams tackled the potentially controversial subject of wines that can be drunk at any time of the day. For this “breakfast” wine he wrote: “Even if at the end of a hedonistic Saturday night some of us find ourselves drinking at what is, technically, breakfast time, most of us wouldn’t choose to start Sundays by reaching for a corkscrew.
“The odd occasion can’t hurt though, especially if the wine is as feathery light in texture and low in alcohol (5.5%) as this gently sparkling, subtly sweet rosé. Think of it as a bibulous take on posh pink grapefruit and grape juice with a handful of crushed berries, or as the softest hair of the dog.”
