Enate Rosado Label

Slurping across the Rosado table at the 16th Annual Wines From Spain Trade Fair unearthed these five rosés. After Rioja Spain always means to me 'rosé' They are all worth sampling although as you can see I was most impressed by two, one from Penedès, the other from Navarra. They have just the right combination of wonderful fresh flavour, full summer fun, plus a little dash of seriousness that really captured the essance of Spanish rosado.

Ferret Cabernet Rosat, 2004, Penedès, Spain.
£6.49 Laymont & Shaw
Creamy strawberries all the way on the nose, really nice and fresh. Full bodied and dry with a nice blackcurrant bite on the finish. Full of flavour and rather stylish. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Scribblings Rating - 92/100

Enate Rosado, 2004, Somontano, Spain.
£7.95 Averys
This is good too, although perhaps a tad expensive, with nice weight. Cherry and cranberry aromas overlay a zesty dry, wine with reasonable length. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 13% alcohol.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100

Castillo de Almansa Rosado, Almansa, Spain.
£5.50 Averys, Nectarous Wines
A bit of confusion over this one - the tasting note sheet lists this under Merlot but has 100% Syrah in the description. The Averys website lists this as 100% Monastrell. Whatever - and it matters little - this is a pale wine with a simple aroma and fresh, pleasant redberry flavours. 13% alcohol.
Scribblings Rating - 84/100

Bodegas Sierra la Guara Idrias Merlot Rosado, 2004, Somontano, Spain.
Unknown stockists price around £6.00-£7.99.
More at home with food I think, than on its own, as this 100% Merlot based wine finishes a little sharp and crisp. But it has nice aromas and plenty of fruit.
Scribblings Rating - 86/100

Monjardin Rosado Bottle

Castillo de Monjardin Merlot Rosado, 2004, Navarra, Spain.
Laymont & Shaw £6.79.
A little barrel fermentation has added good complexity to this excellent rosè. Strawberry flavours abound. Upfront, almost sweet, fruit leads into a full, delicious mouthful but finishes crisp and dry. 100% Merlot. 13% alcohol.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
