In the past, Rosé was considered a warm-weather drink; however, over time, opinions have changed. It’s now a drink that is enjoyed all year round, which is why British brand Pink Diesel decided to launch its own.
For a long time, Rosé wine was considered by some sectors of the population as a drink that was aimed more towards ladies, to be consumed in the garden whilst sunning one’s legs. Pink Diesel is rapidly dispelling that notion with its Rosé, a delicious and refreshing wine suitable for every occasion.
Pink Diesel is the brainchild of Amy Gatehouse and Marina Ayton, two young entrepreneurs who saw a gap in the wine market, and instead of watching it pass by and regretting it later, they’ve made full use of the opportunity.
Pink Diesel Rosé uses grape varieties from Bandol and Côtes de Provence appellations and is made on a family-run vineyard. The two women are keen that the brand uses sustainable methods in production and has a low carbon footprint. The companies they work with have to share the same ideology. Pink Diesel uses recyclable materials and packaging, paying particular attention that all glass bottles can be recycled and reused.
Amy and Marina wanted to add a touch of elegance and adventure to a male-dominated sector, and this Rosé is the result, and it is already proving a success. On the wine app Vivino the Pink Diesel Rosé has rated 4.4 stars which the brand is hugely proud of.
Pink Diesel Rosé comes from the iconic Rosé region of Provence and is a light, crisp, dry wine. You get notes of honey, citrus and peach undertones—the wine benefits from being grown on sloping terraced hillsides consisting of clay and limestone soil.
The Rosé utilises blended Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah grape varieties to create a perfectly balanced wine. The make-up of the Rosé is 35% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 30% Cinsault grape varieties, produced using years of experience and knowledge within ancient methods.
You can now find Pink Diesel Rosé in some of London’s leading bars, such as the Fuel Stop Pop-Up Bar at Covent Garden’s Rosé Garden Party and on the wine lists of well-respected establishments, including the Horse & Groom, West Sussex, the Barn’s Larder, Chichester, the Phoenix, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Surprise Chelsea. The ladies also had a fabulous stand at Goodwood Revival, which was a massive success with the crowds.
A new venture for the brand is bespoke labelling, adding a personal touch to any occasion with bottles having uniquely designed labels appropriate to the event.
Pink Diesel is available online and can be purchased by the bottle, RRP £14.95, in cases of 6+, and Magnums. It is also available in Jeroboam and Methuselah sizes. For more information, visit www.pinkdiesel.co.uk.
