Sure there are preferences amongst all genres but surely rosés have their place when there are particular wines as distinctive as Anjou, Tavel and Provençal in France perticularly, the true home of rose, that show characteristics worthy of decent, drinkable wines that have their place on the table at some time or other.
I have to declare an interest or a preference at least and say I really enjoy rosé wines in so many guises from different sources.It is a different wine philosophy, like where are the NZ and Oz ones…there aren’t hardly any…..but I was brought up on 50 years ago Romanian Hirondelle and Portuguese Mateus, the latter that I still enjoy immensely, it so has its place, that a place in my cellar especially for so many diverse bottles especially , exists!
So here we have a Spanish Rosado from the north west and I have to say, hand on heart, that where rosé detractors might be concerned, here is a wine of maximum integrity and superior quality to lay the myth that the style is a poor mongrel and hardly worth consideration. Not so, amongst exceptionally appealing, and even superb accompaniment to certain food, or indeed stand-alone consumption, this, well-chilled for me especially, is hugely enjoyable stuff of real quality. It has depth, fruit, elegance, style and character and given the price it is perfectly and massively enjoyable value for money that I could recommend to any open-minded individual, being as good as it gets, to deliver pleasurable wine consumption.
