The Neil McGuigan and John Torode Collection rosé

McGuigan_BBQ2016_004_0098TV chef John Torode may have found Australia’s answer to Provençal rosé with a new pale pink wine made in partnership with McGuigan Wines. Using Pinot Noir grown in the Adelaide Hills, the rosé has been deliberately styled on Provençal rosé, which enjoys huge popularity in the UK owing to its pale pink colour, light body, red fruit flavour and dry, refreshing finish.

Martin Papcun, Wine Rack’s buying assistant, said the wine, which comes in a clear glass bottle, was the right pale pink and had the ideal flavour profile for the UK market, adding that he believed the fact it was made with Pinot Noir – which is prominently stated on the front label – would provide a further draw. The rosé comes under the MT brand, which is used for collaborative wine projects by McGuigan Wines and John Torode.
