10 brilliant rosés for under £10

We round up 10 brilliant, bargain rosés following the UK’s largest professional tasting of pink wines for this year’s Global Rosé Masters.

Although the competition features rosés from all price points, including fine pink wines over £50 as part of the expanding luxury rosé sector, the following selection is focused on the bargains available on the market right now.

How were they selected? All the rosés under £10 were grouped together and tasted ‘blind’, which means that they were sampled with no prior knowledge as to their source, and each wine was given a score, and then a medal according to the result.

For the wines below, we have featured just the top performers in this price category, with all the following rosés picking up a Silver medal or higher in the competition.

With the price of rosé rising due to increasing demand – particularly for those from Provence – creating a fine pink wine for sub £10 is impressive.

It should also be noted that this mini-range of brilliant rosés features wines in a number of styles – from the very delicate to the fuller and fruitier versions, although it should also be stressed that all the wines below are dry.

And, as for a word of advice, when it comes to inexpensive rosé, the appeal comes with the fresh, bright, youthful fruit flavours, be they ripe strawberry or delicate grapefruit and white fleshed peach. For this reason, check the vintage before you buy, and make sure it’s a newly-bottled wine – as you’ll see below, all the wines are from the 2019 harvest, which were bottled in the spring this year.

Before you buy a rosé, you can often spot an older wine if it’s been bottled in clear glass as the colour can quickly lose its vibrant appearance, and may have faded from a pretty pink to a more orangey hue.
