We recently released the new vintage of our Rosé: it is a 100% Aglianico wine, Italian Style, light and dry.
As it is a bit of an unusual type in McLaren Vale,
we thought we'd give you a few odd pairings to enjoy it with!
FENNEL, PINK GRAPEFRUIT & BLOOD ORANGE SALAD
We present to you: the easiest salad ever for a quick, light and refreshing summer meal. You can find plenty of different recipes with the same ingredients online, but the one we’re sharing today was just put together on a day where our inspiration and fridge were both empty spaces. For this salad you’ll need:
- 1 big fennel
- ½ pink grapefruit
- 2 blood oranges
- Maggie Beer’s Quince, Apple Cider Vinegar & Extra Virgin Olive Oil Vinaigrette
- Extra olive oil
1/ Slice the fennel very finely
2/ Peel the blood oranges and cut them into thin slices. If possible, keep juice from cuttings and add to vinaigrette.
3/ Peel the grapefruit then take out half of it as quarters, trying to remove as much white skin as possible to be left with quarters of pulp only
4/ Mix 3 tablespoons of Maggie Beer’s Vinaigrette and add 1 table spoon of Olive Oil - this will help tone down the acidity and make it much nicer to drink rosé with the salad 😊
5/ Enjoy with a glass of Rosé!

2. POMEGRANATE MOLASSES GLAZED MOROCCAN CHICKEN
This rosé is a wine for savoury meals, however Rosé normally rhymes with seafood. But not this time! This Pomegranate Moroccan Chicken recipe is like a direct ticket to Morocco without leaving your kitchen. And these days, a little travel-from-home sesh’ is always welcome.
Check out the full recipe by Jessica Fiorillo from Feed Me Dearly.
3. GRAB A GLASS AND...
Check your boobs! Last pairing is not with food but with an activity, and a rather important one. Pink October is a good reminder to make sure you have healthy breasts, so let’s just make it a little more fun by enjoying a nice drop while doing it 😃
You can find a quick video here that explains how to do it properly, or read here for a detailed description of what to do.
$2 per bottle of our 2020 Rosé sold this month will be donated to the McGrath Foundation to help research and fight breast cancer.
