Avoid all temptation to classify this as a ‘celebrity’ pink wine. It has gained traction because of its association with Brad & Angelina, of course it has, but the sophistication of this offering is considerable.

Once upon a time, there was just one pink wine everyone knew from Portugal. And that wine was Mateus Rosé in its distinctive flask shaped bottle; an off-dry, faintly spritzy, undemanding drink. This lively pour from the same corner of Northern Portugal is a very modern reinvention of that tired old stalwart of the wine list.

OK, study the image and guess – where did I buy this bottle? Harrods, maybe? All will be revealed at the end of this post. It’s certainly very stylish in its Art Deco way, and would go down a storm on Miami’s South Beach. Trust an Italian, especially an organic Tuscan, to create something this elegant. But how does it taste?

This Provence pink is not coy and pallid: it has a faint strawberry flush and a warm apricoty nose with just a hint of macaroon. With a slight prickle on the palate, this would pair perfectly with ripe melon and Jambon de Bayonne.

Another stylish pink wine from Aldi, this time in a substantial bottle with an upmarket black and gold label (user alert: the bottle is so tall you may find it challenges your fridge space). But it’s not just about the look of the bottle.
