Rosé wine fans should consider themselves so lucky – because Kylie Minogue’s signature pastel fizz is now the UK’s #1-selling branded pink Prosecco.
With the warm weather due to last all week, now is the perfect time to tickle the bubbles.
Kylie Minogue Prosecco Rosé, £9, asda.com: 4/5
IT’s been at the top of the charts for a while, even among snooty wine experts like me.
Presented perfectly, like the pop princess herself, you can’t get a glass of this gorgeous fizz out of your head.
A wonderfully balanced, vibrant vino that wins over seasoned critics and everyday drinkers alike with its strawberry and blossom flavors and perfect pastel hue.
All packed in a beautiful bottle. On the pricey side when discounted at its usual RRP of £12 but in a lot of supermarkets.
La Giosa et Amorosa Rosea Spumante Brut £8.50, morrisons.com: 3/5
A super sparkling pink that isn’t quite Prosecco – but gets away with it.
It has great foamy fizz with a deeper, more intense color than other Italian bubbles and a wild strawberry tang.
It comes in a bottle which screams special occasion.
If you like pink fizz on the dry side, stick this tipple in your trolley and give it a try. A lovely gift or one to bring to a summer barbecue.
Fleurs de Prairie, £7.99 aldi.co.uk: 2/5
These pale and pretty top-priced French bubbles look and taste great.
Well-balanced – think sugar-dusted pear drizzle on the palate and a tangy slice of saline. A little thin in terms of taste.
But still a great choice for a gathering or if you need a fancy-looking crowd to keep everyone happy.
It won’t break the bank if you want to bring a few bottles in the fridge. Great with smoky flavor, therefore a top staple for any barbecue.
Taste of the Difference Prosecco DOC Rosé Brut £10, sainsburys.co.uk: 3/5
Fruity and frothy, clean and simple. It is a nice dropper, well made and has everything you could want from a bright pink.
It is a 2020 vintage and is made with the white Glera grape, then given its gorgeous yellow hue by the addition of Pinot Noir.
A nice, reliable bottle of bubbles that’s totally drinkable.
But even at the pricey end of the rosé scale and none to set your wine world on fire. The bottle and packaging are also very minimal.
Freexnet Italian Sparkling Rosé, £9, morrisons.com: 3/5
An Italian wine from a Spanish company.
This fizz pink is made with the same grapes as Prosecco, but comes from outside the Prosecco region.
With a pretty cut-glass bottle that, packaging-wise, actually rivals Kylie’s, it’d look great in an ice bucket.
Light-bodied and crisp, with subtle notes of strawberry and cherry, this stylish rosé is more like a wine than Prosecco when drinking. a good price.
La Dame en Rose Sparkling, £9, Marks & Spencer: 5/5
Classy juice, classy bottle. M&S has found a winner with this stunning Southern French blush-hued bubbly under a tanner.
Made with a blend of sun-ripened French grapes for more body and fruit, this one has a fuller fizz but isn’t elegant and overpowering.
Fruity and flavorful – and delicious enough to sip on its own or with a meal.
An especially good pairing with barbecued meats or salads.
Arestel Cava Rosado Brut £5.29,lidl.co.uk: 3/5
Bold in color and flavor, this rustic Spanish sparkling pink comes with a little food on its own, especially salty cheeses, nuts and cold cuts.
Like a lot of Spanish rosé, it has a deep, berry-colored fizz with more red in the mix and a fuller flavor.
Think smoky, strawberry jelly with intense notes of grilled meat.
This pink is of a different style to lighten fizzies but still very much. Great Barbie Bubbles and a great price.
Organic Prosecco Rose £8.49, aldi.co.uk: 5/5
For a perfect pink Prosecco, you ideally want it to be full of ripe, red fruits and with enough freshness to bite those sweet flavors.
This organic offering delivers in those senses.
Beautiful, soft and vibrant, with a subtle fizz and lovely salmon-pink shade. Great paired with salty nibbles or enjoyed on its own.
A good price and beautiful bottle.
