In a nutshell:
A youthful, fruity and refeshing rosé Rioja.
Bodegas Ontañon make some outstandingly good value Riojas and this rosado is a perfect example. Made from 85% Tempranillo, the classic Rioja grape variety and 15% Garnacha it's macerated for just 8 hours to extract just enough colour while keeping the tannins low. It's then fermented as a white wine would be. The result is a classic 'strawberries and cream' summer rosé, with a lovely fruit character and hint of spiciness on the finish.
When to drink:
One of our longstanding favourites, it remains very good value. It's great with food - think white meats, pasta and seafood - and just as good all by itself.
