Dark Horse Rose joins UK portfolio

Dark Horse is adding a rosé to its portfolio in time for the spring and summer months.

The wine, which has a dry taste profile, will be available from retailers nationwide from April.

Dark Horse Rosé was launched in the US in 2016 and it has seen success since launch, according to the producer, and is currently growing at a rate of 75%. The producer hopes to emulate this in the UK where the premium rosé category is growing 35% in volume and 42% in value (Nielsen).

The newcomer – which has an rsp of £8.50 - is a blend of Grenache, Barbera, Pinot Grigio, Tempranillo and Zinfandel.

Dark Horse winemaker, Beth Liston, said the wine makes a “fantastic accompaniment” to salads and light dishes, and it also pairs “exceptionally well” with chips and dips, and it brings a new dimension to smoky burgers at a barbecue.
