Izadi, Larrosa, Rioja, Spain, 2019
(at London, 17 Aug 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2022
Made from old-vine Garnacha planted at 790m, this Rioja Rosado takes its cue from Provence with a pale salmon colour and pretty strawberry and cherry aromatics. The palate has more body than the delicate nose suggests, with a textured mouthfeel. Red berries and ripe stone fruit notes are balanced by grapefruit and lime citrus, with a stony mineral bite to the finish, plus fresh, palate-cleansing acidity.
