''Highlighted by redcurrant and cherry notes, spice and lemon citrus. Finishes crisp and refreshing. A lovely rosé that over-delivers for the price.'' 91 Points, Julie Sheppard, Decanter Magazine
Hi Folks, At European Wine Store one of our most requested wines all year round is Rosé (and for good reason!) with the warmer weather ahead of us, now is a great time to be reacquainted with one of the vinous world's great pleasures. For us one of the best kept secrets is the 2020 Roman Bilbao Rosé from Rioja, Spain; this has beautiful aromas of white florals, citrus, cherry and strawberry fruits, with subtle herbal nuances. Its well rounded with good acidity and is complete with a bone-dry finish. At just $22.99 this offer's great bang for your buck and is sure to be one of your new go-to Rosé for Spring & Summer! Its not just us who have been drawn in by the beauty of this wine; in recent years it has also captured the imagination of some of the leading wine guides including Decanter & Falstaff Magazine who were attracted to its savoury, mineral, spice and bright acidity on offer. In terms of style I reckon Joanna Simon from the UK Wine Guide got it spot on ''A Rioja-meets-Provence style rosé – dry, elegant, medium-bodied, soft-textured & crisp.''
''Appealing peach and strawberry aromas, which follow through onto the palate of this Garnacha (85%) and Viura blend. There's some weight and creaminess to the palate – good for food – which is balanced by bright acidity and freshness, with some zippy redcurrant and cherry notes, spice and lemon citrus. Finishes crisp and refreshing. A lovely rosé that over-delivers for the price.'' 91 Points, Julie Sheppard, Decanter Magazine
''This is the kind of refreshing rosé that’s irresistible on a proper summer’s day: a Rioja-meets-Provence style rosé – dry, elegant, medium-bodied and soft-textured but crisp, with redcurrant, orange zest, a touch of apricot and spice. It’s mainly Garnacha – hence the pinch of spice – from vineyards 500–700 metres up in the Alta Najerilla, one of the coolest parts of Rioja.'' Joanna Simon, Wine of The Week, (UK Wine Guide) (Previous Vintage Review)
''Subtle notes of red berries on the nose, pineapple and grapefruit. Juicy acidity on the palate, fine toast aromas, saline mineral finish.'' Falstaff Magazine (Previous Vintage Review)
''From one of the coolest sites in Rioja.'' Tina Gellie, Decanter Magazine
