Spanish wine producer Grupo Codorníu has added a new rosé to its range of Catalonian wines in response to rising consumer demand for rosés.

Raimat Abadia Rosé 2008, rsp £6.99, is the first rosé to join the nine-strong Raimat range. The blend of two grapes - Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon - will be the first Raimat wine to carry Cordoníu's 'Sustainable Agriculture'. It will roll out this week.

The wine would cash in on demand for a rosé from a brand that was both quality and affordable, the company said.
