2018 Cune Rosado ($13)
This wonderful Cune rosé is from the Rioja region of Spain and is made from their famous Tempranillo.
The bright red color of this Cune rosé is spectacular. And, hence, it’s big Maraschino cherry and ripe strawberry flavors are no surprise.
These grapes are handpicked and placed in stainless steel tanks at low temperature to delay the onset of fermentation. During these 24 to 48 hours, the must develops this bright red color and then is drained from the vat. Fermentation then begins but it is maintained at 16-18C to preserve the bright aromas and fruit flavors characteristic of this Cune rosé.
Serve this one nicely chilled and enjoy! Cheers!
