Bodegas Olivares Altos de la Hoya Rosado Jumilla, Spain 2020Regular price $13.00
Bodegas Oliveras makes this organic rose by collecting the mosto flor –the free run juice flowing from grapes crushed by their own weight without any mechanical pressing. The 70% Garnacha (AKA Grenache) and high altitude vineyards give this rosado the lighter color and fresh acidity while the 30% Monastrell (AKA Mourvedre) and dry farmed, ungrafted old vines provide depth and complexity on the palate.
The glass fills up with aromas of red berries and tangerines with more of the same on the palate with a zesty citrus and white pepper finish.
