2020 Clandestine Vineyards Tempranillo Rosé

It’s that time of year isn’t it.  The days and evenings are warmer, and bottles of wine start taking up space in the fridge and, you shuffle food items around to make room for more wine.  I don’t know if it’s the same in your home, but Rosé seems to be appearing in equal numbers to white wines in our fridge these days.  When I see and taste Rosés such as this one, I know why the ‘Rosé Revolution’ will continue for some time and not just in the summer months.  Ones, like this good example, are also great accompaniments to Asian style cuisine.

It starts off quite aromatic with strawberry, floral and herb like characters on the nose.  It’s really fresh on the palate.  It may be light-ish in body but still flavoursome thanks to red berries and cherries the main contributors.  There is lovely texture on the mid palate where a savouriness comes through and it finishes nice and dry with reasonably good length too.  I’ve made this sound like a simple wine, but it isn’t and not necessarily complex either.  It’s a genuinely good, very moreish Rosé, which about sums it up really.
