Not just an accessory for summer, rose/rosado/rosato or pink wine in any accent, when carefully made, is a wine for sharing with friends, enjoying with food or just enjoying while you are winding down for the day. And this rosado has been made with food in mind. It is a tempranillo dominant blend where this prima donna Spanish red grape leads and garnacha follows.
This is fuller bodied, dry pink that glides smoothly like silk across the palate but finishes with a crisp freshness. There is not just strawberry, cherry and peach to be found here, but also some delightful spice. Textural rosados like this match well with tapas, or lightly spiced grilled chicken or seared tuna.
