So the flowers have well and truly blossomed, the wintery air has gone and the festive season is literally right around the corner (Thanks Myer for reminding us with your big Christmas trees). This means it’s official, Rosé all day season is here AKA The Spring Racing Carnival… and we’re not mad about it.

With the weather warming up, we’re feeling increasingly rosier and when it comes to warm-weather drinking and Spring Racing season in Melbourne, pink is definitely the new white.

Whether your heading trackside and hosting pre drinks, or simply throwing an afternoon BBQ together with your best friends on Melbourne Cup Day with a little healthy competition betting, Rosé is the perfect (and prettiest) drop this spring racing season. We want to share with you what we’ll be drinking (Rosé this way —>)

While some race goers may think Melbourne Cup Day is a great excuse to drink like a delinquent and end up with heels in hand by the end of the day, we’re much more refined than that. This season we’ll be sipping on a cheeky ‘Delinquente Wine Co  Pretty Boy Rosato’, from Riverland, South Australia.

Grown and produced by a younger generation wine maker, this pale pink drop is  modern, with sophisticated qualities, designed for easy drinking. Produced from harvested Nero D’Avola, the famous black grape from Sicily, this pretty boy smells oh so sweet but with the “swagger of Mick Jagger” says Winemaker Greg Grigoriou. Think hints of summer berries but crisp and dry. Its fun, bright, and bubbly making it the perfect Spring Racing season drink!
