TASTING NOTE: A blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha - the backbone of Rioja's great red wines - this rosé has echoes of the depth, structure and weight you would expect of the wines from here. Smooth and textured with impressive and intense fruit-forward strawberry tones plus a savory herbal note. More extracted than rosés crafted in a Provençal style, for example, this will be great with grilled red peppers and has the stuff to stand up to grilled pork or lamb kebabs.
