Mazza, Bastardo Rosé 2014

Forget the ugly name, this is a beautiful wine! Traditionally used in Port blends, the Douro variety of Bastardo has very low tannins making it perfect for rosé. David Mazza, who specialises in Iberian varieties, thinks this is the only example in the world. There’s a hint of earthy, savoury rusticity that adds complexity to the elegant herbal, strawberry and cranberry fruit here, which is lifted by zippy citrus acidity. The weight and texture makes it a perfect wine for the table, but you could happily enjoy it on its own and dream of summer.
