Just 6 Bottles Of Rosé That Aren’t Whispering Angel

We tried every bottle so you don't have to...

Time to stop and drink the rosé.

This is a very different rosé season from any we’ve had in the past.

As a result of the global pandemic, we’re unable to swarm rooftop bars and sip together and any back garden rosé-drinking is happening either alone or two metres away from anyone else.

But that doesn’t mean that you should write off the pink stuff completely. Actually, we’d argue that rosé is exactly what we all need right now because it’s such a beautiful, delicious reminder that better days absolutely do lie ahead.

This vibrant rosé from the Spanish region of Navarra was a collaboration between Lynne Coyle MW, Wine Director at O’Briens Wines, and Alicia Eyaralar from Bodega Tandem. The name Rós is Gaelic for rose and the wine is made from sustainably farmed Garnacha grapes vinified with natural wild yeast. It’s intense and medium-bodied, with a vibrant coral hue and aromas of ripe strawberries. While it has a very fruity nose, it’s dry and structured on the palate.
