Rosés von der Loire: Ein Sommernachtstraum

Tag: Regionensigi.hiss @ 15:24
Rosés von der Loire, die richtigen Weine für die Grillsaison
Dass Rosé im Trend liegt, ist kein Geheimnis. Seit einigen Jahren erlebt der lange verkannte Wein ein Comeback und wird besonders von jüngeren Genießern, aber auch von Kennern gerne getrunken – sicherlich auch, weil sich die Qualität von Rosé im Allgemeinen stark gebessert hat. Im Sommer ist ein gekühlter Rosé eine willkommene und spannende Alternative zum Weißwein. Gerade die Rosés von der Loire mit ihrer pikanten Frische und leichten Restsüße sind die Stars jeder Gartenparty und optimale Begleiter sommerlicher Grillgerichte und Salate.

Camel Valley regularly supplies wine to Clarence House, the London residence of the Prince of Wales, but the Waitrose order was ‘unusual’, Lindo said.  Continue reading „Decanter: English wine producers search for signs of royal favour“

Wine grape prices in Australia have plummeted by between a third and 50% over the last decade, according to figures published this week by the the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES). Red wine grape varieties have suffered the worst falls.
