LARROSA GARNACHA ROSÉ 2020 DOCa Rioja
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer IZADI
Taste-wise, at $16.95 this extremely well-priced, quite delicious Rioja Rose leaves many higher-priced LCBO offerings in the dust. Bright very pale violet-tinged pink colour, the nose is slightly spicy with refined, ripe, bright, plum-apple fruit along with some hints of strawberry. Dry, medium bodied, bright, slightly spicy, fresh, ripe, plum-apple-cherry flavours with a crisp, unoaked, mineral-tinged, harmonious finish. Try with seafood or perhaps poultry. This 100% Garnacha has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L20001 on the back label. Much better than the 2019 that was released on May 30, 2020 at $16.95. CSPC 490961
