Sunny Delight

There are daffodils in the garden and we even had a brief spell of sunshine for about three minutes a few weeks ago so, obviously, it’s time to talk rosé. Even if you do have to wear a poncho in the garden when you drink it. Now, Bandol is a sub-region in Provence and the wines can be on the expensive side but the Co-op has got a gorgeous not-exactly-cheap-but-not-outrageous one in their range at the moment, as featured on Saturday Kitchen a few weeks ago, so I’ve included it in this week’s reviews. Also, I’ll be doing another Instagram Live wine tasting with the lovely Kat Farmer over on her Instagram (@doesmybumlook40) on Thursday at 6pm this week. South Africa’s wine industry has been hit hard by the pandemic with sales of alcohol banned for much of lockdown so all the wines featured will be from South Africa, including the red in this week’s reviews. Join us if you can, I’d love to see you there.
