It's Wimbledon, it's strawberry season and there's never been a better time to crack open some ros, says ANTHONY ROSE. Anyone who thought that a passion for ros was just a flash in the pan in the torrid summer of 2003 was wrong, because the buoyancy of the wine market is largely down to ros's popularity.' The major retailers are pushing the discount boat out and Rose discovers that Marks & Spencer has 20% off its entire ros range until 27 June, while Majestic is offering 20% off when you buy two. Highlights include House Wine Ros from Plaimont (down to 2.79; Marks & Spencer) and 2005 La Madone, Chteau de Panery, Ctes du Rhne Ros (4.39, down from 5.49; Majestic).
