Susana Balbo ROSE 2019
Before you even get to the wine, the bottle is a beautiful thing to behold, so elegant. Fortunately, the wine itself follows up on this every step of the way. A very light pink rosé, reminiscent of the finest wines of Provence, with aromas of delicate rose petals and wild strawberries. On the palate, it's clear this is no wishy-washy light rosé. It is wonderfully refreshing but with a complex minerality not often seen in rosés. Bright flavours of wild red fruits abound, with delicate hints of peaches and cream. A proper rosé this, every bit a rival to the famous wines of Provence, with a certain generosity and charm they often lack.
