2015 Rosado Barrica, Finca Manzanos

This Garnacha Tempranillo blend is a really eye-opening rose. Unusually for rose it is matured in barrels for 12 months before it's released, and this ageing gives the wine a whole new dimension.

The colour is a little deeper and more coppery than many roses, and the aroma is spicier. On the palate it manages to combine the vibrant summery fruit you'd expect from a rose with a richer, stewed and candied fruit, flavour. The combination is delicious and makes the wine very versatile with food. It's perfect at a barbecue and with grilled fish.
