10 brilliant rosés that won’t break the bank

8. Izadi, Larrosa, 2016

The style: Dry rosé

The medal: Gold

The price: Approx. £10

The sugar content: 1g/l

The producer: Izadi

The source: Rioja, Spain

The grapes: 100% Grenache

The taste: A pretty looking wine – both in terms of packaging and colour – that delivers lots of fresh raspberry fruit and a touch of ripe peach too. Using old vine Grenache planted at a relatively high altitude in Rioja’s cooler sub-region of Rioja Alavesa, the wine successfully mixes a lovely juiciness with a palate-cleansing freshness. Although it’s not as delicate as a rosé from Provence, it is a bright and fruity pink with an upmarket appearance that offers great value-for-money.
