Sparkling wine producer Green Point has launched a rosé variant into the UK in time for the summer.

The Australian wine ­maker has brought out Green Point Vintage Brut Rosé 2002 as a new player in the booming rosé market. It also fits into the sparkling wine segment, which had strong sales last year.

CEO Dr Tony Jordan said: "This particular prestige wine is from the 2002 vintage, which was the coolest and best since 1986."

The wine is described as having red berry fruit charac­teristics from Pinot Noir grapes. It will be available from next month in ­Oddbins, priced at £13.99.
