T-Mobile are the latest corporate sponsor to pull out of professional cycling citing . We’ll miss them. T-Mobile’s bright pink shirts have been a cheery splash of colour in the peloton for years.
To bid them farewell here’s the last pink wine of the year, a Cune Rioja Rosado 2006 from Majestic. It’s not quite T-mobile, but it is a bright and cheerful candy pink. It smells of strawberries and a little of raspberries and a lot of summer. Just off dry it has a refreshing acidity, as a good balance to the sweet fruit, like lemon curd and strawberries. It has a satisfyingly full body for a rose, boosted by a hefty 13.5% alcohol.
I’ll miss the T-Mobile pink next summer, but look forward to enjoying rosado’s again next season.
