Bright onion skin color. Displays incisive, mineral-driven aromas of fresh red berries, orange zest, honeysuckle and a hint of white pepper. Dry, nervy and sharply focused on the palate, showing superb clarity and cut to its tangy redcurrant, blood orange and rhubarb flavors. Finishes taut and impressively long, displaying an emphatic mineral quality and lingering floral and mineral notes. Is there another rosé on the market and where near the price that delivers as much finesse as this one? I doubt it. ... More details

I loved the 2017 Rosado, a beauty well worth checking out, especially at the price. Terrific notes of strawberries, flowers, some spice, and garrigue all emerge from this classic, very pretty, elegant rose that has loads of charm. (Dunnuck)

Already in bottle, the 2017 Rosado is always the first wine from the vintage that I taste. In reality, it's a "clarete," as it has 55% white grapes (Viura) and 35% Garnacha plus 10% Tempranillo. It's very pale because it has a lot of white, despite four days of maceration. It's fresh and fruit-driven, with raspberry and strawberry aromas. The palate is dry and fresh with good volume, better than the nose, which might need a little more time in bottle. It's quite good for the difficulties of the vintage. 65,000 bottles produced.

A sweeter style with watermelon and light strawberry flavors. Drink now.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
