    Anne is showing off and has sent this photo of the contents of her fridge.

    To round off the presentation, we will have the chance to compare these French Rosés with a couple of New Zealand offerings.

    • The Hunters (Pinot based)
    • Hawkes Bay Estate (merlot)

    With summer “still” just around the corner, what a great opportunity to try some wines which make for really great drinking in the warmer weather.

    Anne is showing off and has sent this photo of the contents of her fridge. Now personally I might make an observation about the lack of food evident. However, what is it they say about wine being the nectar of the Gods. If bees can live on nectar, maybe humans can too. I think however that this might be a cry for help and what she would like is for lots of people to come to this month’s tasting of Rosé wines. We would all be doing her a favour by clearing room in the fridge so she can again store a few food items. (No No Anne, food items, not more Rosé)
