Wondering down the drinks isle of my supermarket, the Natureo Rose Review comes after a nearly empty facing of rose caught my eye. I decided to pickup the last two bottles and give you my thoughts!
Natureo Rose is made with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from Catalonia in Spain. It has a flavour profile that provides upfront sweetness of ripe red berries and strawberries which then give way to a crisp and tart finish.

There are sweet fruity notes in each glass of Natureo Rose. When drinking glass, you will be greeted to:
- some upfront sweetness from ripe red berries and strawberries.
- a body that builds and develops with each mouthful.
- a finish that has a citrus-like crispness and tartness.
Like I touched on above, the Natureo Rose has a well-weighted body and feels like a rose should. It has the thickness you would expect from a rose and is like the body in the Tautilia and Leitz.
While I enjoy a drier rose, I found this was sweet, but not overly sweet. For that reason, I’d have no hesitation getting a bottle on the way to a barbeque
What was interesting when drinking my way through a couple of bottles, was that the wine tasted better on the second and third day and as it warmed ever so slightly in the glass the tart and crisp finish really became more pronounced.
Be sure to use a big burgundy glass and give it some air when drinking, you’ll be better for it!

If you’ve read any of my content – beer, wine or spirits related, I’m big on how impactful a glass is, particularly non-alcoholic wine. It can make or break the experience.
For Rose and red wine, I purchased myself a set of 4 Salute red wine glasses, and over the past 2.5 years have found them to be durable yet fine and enjoyable to drink from.
You can check out the Spiegelau set over at Amazon (they set me back about $70-$80 for a 4-pack) but keep an eye out for specials.
Natureo is widely available and easy to access through supermarkets – Woolworths, in store retailers – Dan Murphy’s and online – Craft Zero.
Each bottle will cost you around $11 – $15 per 750ml bottle.
If you’re looking to give it a go, check it out in-store or there is the online link to get you started below:
Beyond those few above, there are many more options available so keep an eye out for it when you’re browsing your supermarket shelves.
As a general rule, if you enjoy slightly sweet rose, strawberry flavours and crisp finishes then this is going to be a great everyday drinking rose for you!
The Natureo Rose is quite similar to the Leitz Rose that I wrote up and reviewed recently, they both have an upfront sweetness and then transition to a tart finish. You can read more about the Leitz Rose here.
The biggest appeal of the Natureo Rose is that it is easily accessible and ready for you on supermarket shelves.
This makes it easy to grab a bottle en-route and still have a decent option to drink!
The Natureo Rose has 18 calories, 2.6 grams of sugar and 0 grams of fat per 100ml. It is low sugar and low calorie rose for anyone looking to enjoy a rose without any of the drawbacks.
Comparing it to other non-alcoholic rose options I have written reviews on lately the Natureo Rose comes in below both the:
- Funky Monkey Rose which is 3.5 grams of sugar and 21.5 calories per 100ml; and
- Leitz Rose which is 4.4 grams of sugar and 22.8 calories per 100ml.

Per Serving (125ml)
The Natureo Rose is created crafted premium quality grapes from the hot and sun drenched region of Catalonia in Spain. Each bottle of Rose contains
- De-alcoholised Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon wine.
- Preservative E-242; and
- Sulphur dioxide
The Natureo Rose is a drink perfectly pitched at summer afternoons and is a rose that will have wide appeal to a wide array of drinkers.
It is a perfect option to share with friends, or given the low-calorie count, indulge in the bottle yourself! After all it is alcohol-free and with less than 20 grams of sugar in the whole bottle it will hardly make a dent!
Needless to say I was beyond surprised that a supermarket wine was able to provide flavours like the Natureo did.
While opening with a sweet profile the way the finish is crisp and tart really made me come to enjoy this rose. Which, if you’ve been following me for a little while is surprising given my preference is a dry rose like the De La Tautila or a light and mineral one like the Funky Monkey.
As far as how it stacks up against other Rose options. The Natureo does abundantly well and comes in, at third place behind the De La Tautila that takes out the top spot, the Leitz that takes out second for being just that little bit more refined than the Natureo.
It is a really impressive effort and for the price point (especially when on special for $10-11 in supermarkets) you can’t go wrong.
This one lands a 7/10 for me, as the added sweetness at the beginning is offset by the fresh tart finish. I was tempted to give it an extra 1/2 a point for how cheap it is!
