Rosé needs more respect

I’ve just finished a tasting of over 80 mostly NZ Rosé samples plus a handful from France, Australia and Spain. At its best Rosé can be terrific, especially when served well chilled with smoked salmon and a crunchy salad on a balmy summer day. At worst Rosé is insipid, confected and sometimes slightly bitter wine. There’s a big gap between those two extremes.
