Finest Navarra Garnacha Rosé 2012

Finest Navarra Garnacha Rosé 2012In writing about rosé, Atkins added: “The best medium-weight and richer rosés tend to come, not from California, but from Spain and Portugal, Chile, South Africa and New Zealand. Choose syrah/shiraz, garnacha/grenache and cabernet sauvignon rosés, which make fuller rosés than most other grapes. Expect a bright cerise colour, an inviting aroma of strawberry, red cherry and cranberry, and a succulent, lingering flavour with a swipe of refreshing acidity to balance the subtle sweetness.”

She wrote of this wine: “The new vintage is juicy and full-on fruity with strawberries galore and a hint of rosehip, but nearly dry. An excellent example of Spanish rosado.”
