When asked how it was possible to make a rosé wine from a white grape variety, a spokeswoman for Buckingham Vintners said: "We are not going to disclose this detail. Just put it down to special winemaking."
Coming up rosé with pink Chardonnay
Buckingham Vintners has developed a sparkling rosé Chardonnay to appeal to the female market. The wine, which is priced at £4.99, is stocked at Asda and Co-op and will be available in Marks & Spencer in the autumn. Buckingham Vintners' marketing manager Jon Pepper said: "Years of growth driven by increasingly deep discounting have finally hit their ceiling, creating a need for innovation to pull more consumers into the wine category. Pink Chardonnay frizzante combines three successful wine styles in one neat product."
