The second wine from the Colourfulwines.com wine tasting hosted by TomeVinos.com. The theme of this wine tasting was Spring Wines and this little Rose certainly meets that requirement. In fact it would be a good summer wine.
The bodega is based in the D.O. Toro but this wine does make the D.O. qualification because it uses the Verdejo grape which is not allowed under their regulations. They wanted to use Verdejo to add fruitier flavours and acidity.
This limited edition wine is a classic example of the quality of some Vino de Tierras.
It’s an incredibly pale pink. Apparently the grapes are crushed very lightly to avoid too much contact with the skin. It’s scent is also very light and barely discernible. It snells of raspberry sherbet with a bit of strawberry.
True to form this is a light, delicate wine. Dry with some body but very delicate flavours. Not very acidic, it is well balanced there, which is good as the flavours would have been destroyed with too much acidity. There is just enough to give the raspberry flavour a nice sorbet effect.
A well made wine and ideal for a hot day.
