Wine slushies have officially become a thing. What a time to be alive! Frosé is very much the drink of the season – and we’ve tracked down where in Melbourne you can find it. We’ve even included some of the best spots to get a nice rosé, for the traditionalists out there.
When you head to the awesome Japanese-fusion restaurant Mr Miyagi, you should always remember the advice of its namesake: balance is key. And when it comes to their frosé, that means a glass in each hand! Mr M’s frosé is made from Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir Rosé, blended with strawberries, a touch of sugar and a delicate flower on top. As light and fun, it’s the perfect accompaniment to your Nikuman Steamed Pork Buns.
“Foodie heaven. My new infusion fave. From the vibe to the service to the food everything was perfect. Once taken to our table the waitress helped us select 5 share dishes for the evening. Every dish had its own uniqueness as well as deliciousness. I can’t fault this place on food and experience.” – Alwaysroomfordessert
What’s the one thing better than a cool glass of frosé? A cool glass of frosé that only costs $10! And you can get it every day at Father’s Office, where the 1920s never quite ended. It’s a bar/restaurant that oozes classical charm, and it’s loaded with hooch barrels, antique couches, vintage photographs and countless other knickknacks that wouldn’t look out of place in your nan’s house. You know – if your nan served frosé. She’s not like a regular nan, you know. She’s a cool nan…
“Cool themed bar in the most central location. Balcony with great view. Drink and food specials really set this place apart. Will definitely be coming back just to keep trying it all!” – CST06
Let’s be real – when you want a good wine, it just makes sense to head to a good wine bar. And there are very few that are better than Kirk’s. These guys don’t muck about when it comes to wine and associated nibbles, so you know it’s going to be a lovely place to stop by for a glass of rosé. They’ve got a truly classy selection, including Les Fouques Cuvee Tradition Grenache and Cinsault – so if you like your rosé on the fancy side, this is the place for you.
“A wonderful Hardware Lane bar/bistro. We went here for a late Saturday lunch and were super impressed. Food was divine (see photos posted) and wine list varied. We had the pate, carpaccio and zucchini flowers, watered down with a French rose. Perfect for a summer lunch. Worth a visit.” – Winebuff in training
When you want a vintage with a view, you can’t go past Fitzroy’s iconic Naked in the Sky. They have an impressive wine list – but if you’re after a gorgeous glass of rosé, the Langmeil Bella Rouge 2015 is calling your name. It’s wonderfully refreshing on a warm evening, and great to sip as you sit on the terrace and gaze out over the city. After all, nothing says “Melbourne summer” like sitting on a rooftop bar, soaking up the sun and enjoying a glass of this season’s trendiest pink drink.
“A really fantastic bar. Even when it’s thrumming with people you can find yourself some space. An excellent range of vodka infusions, fantastic atmosphere, and brilliant views. One of my favourite bars in Melbourne.” – PeeCeeLark
You’d expect anywhere with “Madame” in the name to have a pretty extensive wine list, and Brussels certainly doesn’t disappoint. This whimsical bar boasts wines sourced from all around the world, and the fancy garden party theme makes rosé a must. After all, roses, rosé… you get it. Pop in after work one day, pull up a chair in the garden, and prepare for a fabulous time with a glass of that sweet rosé “drinkipoo”.
“What can I say. Amazing roof top bar. Love the interior and the cocktails are delicious.” – LWJ_2210
