Think pink with 10 of the best rosés to drink this bank holiday weekend

Rosé and summer go hand in hand – many of us associate pink wine with relaxation and cooling off on a hot day.

Though made in a similar way to red wine (by fermenting grapes with their skins, which add colour, tannin and an extra hit of flavour), rosé retains the freshness of white wine by limiting the skin contact during production.

Although it was once thought a ‘lesser’ wine than red and white, it has soared in popularity over the past few years and pairs well with a lot of summery dishes, from fresh salads to barbecued meats, making it in many ways the ideal drink for the warmer months.

Click through our gallery below to see 10 of our favourite rosés (starting from just £4.79) to enjoy during the last hurrah of summer: the bank holiday weekend.
