Malbec & Tannat, Cahors, South-West France
First of all, we would like to make clear that we are extremely pro the inclusion of several exclamation points in a given wine’s name. It really lightens the mood! We’d love to see this stylistic decision applied even to more classic wines, such as St-Emilion!!! or Chassagne-Montrachet!!! That being said, we can’t imagine a wine more deserving of the triple ! than Fabien Jouves’ A Table!!! Rosé, a punchy, buoyant blend of Cahors & Tannat. These are two boisterous & intense red wine grapes that outright refuse to take part in the creation of any simpering, delicate classically Southern French rosés, which are so pale in the glass you have to squint to find the colour pink. Made using part saignée method (which typically involves ‘bleeding’ off liquid from a tank of juice to help produce more concentrated flavour & colour) & part direct press (wherein grapes are grown and selected exclusively for rosé production, then gently pressed until the juice reaches a desirable colour), A Table!!! is a neon hot pink stunner like an electric guitar solo. Loud & uncomplicated, poppy bright red cherry, strawberry fruit roll-up, & a dash of effervescence upon initially opening.

Zinfandel, Grenache & Tempranillo, Calaveras County, California, USA
Forlorn Hope’s Queen of the Sierra wines are their entry-level estate wines, which is literally insane because if they were any other producer’s top tier we would accept it in a heartbeat. It’s sort of like when Lou Reed said “My week beats your year”— Forlorn Hope’s entry-level beats your premier cru. The rosé is a blend of Zinfandel, Grenache Noir & Tempranillo, all three of whom are gregarious showboats, like when your three loudest Leo friends go on an island adventure together & absolutely inundate your Instagram feed with like literally like three selfies per minute &, in all honesty, it’s the best content your phone has graced you with in years. Evidently, this rosé is no shrinking violet, a plush & bright red fruit pool party. Grapes are whole-cluster pressed into stainless steel, fermented with native yeasts, racked after a few months on the lees, then bottled two months later with minimal SO2. Lees contact gives the wine body & luscious texture, low-key creamy like a strawberry Campino. Confit watermelon, whiff of orange blossom, hibiscus Jarritos, Strawberry Shortcake doll. A tiny touch of tannin brings it back down to Earth & gives it a touch of foodiness: this wine pairs brilliantly with SNACKS, all snacks, beach snacks, non-beach snacks, chips & charc & choc & candy & all the things we all wish we were eating, all the time.

Pinot Noir & Blauer Portugieser, Pfalz, Germany
From natural wine heartthrobs and fifth-generation winemakers, Daniel and Jonas Brand comes this Goth-y and romantic rosé that will do all kinds of crazy things to your heart. It may flutter, it may pound, it may straight-up stop. You may find yourself writing this rosé a love letter or trying to deliver it a bouquet of dead roses in the driving rain. It’s a completely normal reaction to drinking this wine. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Wildrosé isn’t wild like down to clown but rather wild like the wildness of first love, effervescent and intense, but at the same time weirdly tragic. Not that we’re in any way tied down to the dogma of seasonal drinking— drink Vinho Verde in January! Drink Côte-Rôtie in August! Who cares? Follow your heart!— but this is a winter rosé if we ever saw one, teetering on the border of darkest rosé and lightest red. It’s earthy and even low-key smoky, with homey, soul-warming aromas of cranberry sauce and no shortage of textbook natural wine snarl. Spontaneously fermented in neutral wood, unfined and unfiltered with no sulphur added. Plant-based products like herbal extracts or tea are used to strengthen the vines, which is so cute and hippie-(ish! *One last warning— some natural wines are here for a good time, not a long time. We highly recommend drinking this puppy over the course of one wild night: chug it like you’re raving at Berghain and are desperately in need of thirst-quenching. This wine won’t be at its best the next morning (just like you after a wild night of raving at Berghain))
