The perfumed and peachy 2017 Rosado was bottled in October 2017 with more Garnacha in the blend than in previous years, almost a blanc de noirs, without skin contact. It has a pale bright-pink color, a fruit-driven nose, with notes of berries and a hint of roses, and a very tasty palate with a pleasant bitterness in the finish. 85,000 bottles.
Lurid orange-pink. Vibrant, expansive strawberry and tangerine aromas, carry a suave floral overtone. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering gently sweet red fruit flavors that become livelier with aeration. Smoothly blends depth and energy and finishes long and sappy, featuring a building floral echo and a spicy jolt of white pepper. This pink wine has the richness to work with full-flavored foods and the nerviness to enjoy all by itself. It's an outstanding value to boot.
