A dozen English rosés to try during English Wine Week

Renegade The Jock English Rosé 2018 (£19)

Proving just how popular pink wine is these days, urban winery Renegade in Bethnal Green makes one. Called The Jock, it’s named after a fruit seller in Borough Market who has worked his patch for over 50 years at his Stark and Sons stall. The pale pink is made from a blend of 40% Pinot Meunier and 60% Pinot Noir from Hampshire and Herefordshire. The Pinot is whole-bunch pressed and 40% barrel fermented, and went through malo with minimal sulphur. The result is a delicate, structured rosé with zippy acidity and notes of summer berries and orange blossom.
