Tickled Pink By Wimbledon

By | June 24, 2008

Wimbledon is upon us. A chance to eat strawberries and cream whilst sitting in the rain listening to Cliff Richard, should you require one.
What better way to kick off the week than with an English wine. Welland Valley Wines produce the delightfully named ‘Tickled Pink’, a sparkling pink wine. It’s a delicate rose pink, with a fine, enthusiastic mousse. It smells of strawberries and lemons. It tastes of strawberries too along with zippy redcurrants.
England’s sparkling wines are proving to be a real success, and this is a good example. Unfortunately Welland Valley produces all of its wines on two acres of Leicestershire countryside. That’s just a big back yard or outsized allotment.
If you want some Tickled Pink – tough luck – it’s sold out. Put an order in now for the next release, expect to pay around £20.
