Red fruit (cherry, blackberry & blueberry) intense aromas. In the mouth it is dense, fleshy, very fresh and with high quality tannins. Lingering end, with fruit memories.

WINE DESCRIPTORS

ABOUT THE WINERY: 1808

In 2002, the last generational change takes place in 2002, developing a new wine project based on a human team that wishes to adapt to the new times without losing its ancestral hallmarks. Thus, preserving the tradition, 1808 incorporates the new facilities with the latest technological advances.

CRITIC'S NOTES

Come and dive in the Mediterranean ocean on a warm day!This wine is all you can expect from a perfect and relaxing day in the French riviera. Friendly, fun, full of flavor and refreshing.The bright acidity is very well balanced with the sweet flavors of the red cherries, plums and juicy apples, a hint of white roses and quince to complete this delicious wine.Even so, it is a light wine perfect for chilling in the balcony or at the pool. I was very surprised by the length in the palate, very food friendly can pair with varied dishes. Try salads, grilled fish, sushi, chicken or pizza! All pairs are perfect with this rose.Then take a bottle and just enjoy!

OUR SOMELIER REVIEW

This wine comes from a Boutique winery, making just small amounts of good bottles every year.This wine seems powerful in the nose, typical for a good tempranillo, but maintains the fresh aromas of black fruits, black currant, black cherries, liquorice, pine and a soft touch of vanilla and chocolate for the aging in American oak barrels.Surprisingly, in the palate, all the power fades and becomes in a soft and elegant wine, the tannins are well balanced and the acidity is super refreshing.A perfect wine for chorizo and Manchego cheese plate, tapas or empanadas.
