2018 Ripa Rosado, José Luis Ripa, Rioja
2018 was a good vintage in Rioja and with with lower alcohols and fresher acidities, this Rosado is a rather delicious wine indeed. The aromatic profile has a restrained concentration of red fruits with pink grapefruit combined with wild herb notes, verbena and flint. The palate has an attractive pithiness and weight that provides a generosity and depth that you come to expect from high quality roses. The acidity is crisp and energetic and thankfully the wine lingers on the finish for a long time.
