5. Chateau de Sours Rose 2013, Bordeaux, France

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK -

Also new to O’Brien’s, this is a pale peach blend of Caber­nets and Mer­lot. Dry in style but with warm rasp­berry and cream aro­mas and a re­fresh­ingly sour twist on the rich palate, it is a par­tic­u­larly ver­sa­tile food wine. Spend­ing over €20 on a rosé takes con­sid­er­a­tion, but this Grenache, Cin­sault and Ti­bouren blend pro­vides a sub­tle play be­tween ex­pres­sive red fruit and steely struc­ture. Wor­thy of wild sal­mon.

€22.95 Corkscrew, D2; 64 Wine, Glasthule; Pantry, Barna, Galway (roséwine.ie)
