Rosa de Arrocal 2016
89 (VM)
Score Publication Review Copy
89 Vinous Media Lurid orange-pink. Bright, sharply focused strawberry, cherry and floral scents, complicated by zesty orange pith and white pepper nuances. Shows good heft as well as a surprisingly light touch, offering bitter berry skin, blood orange and ginger flavors that are given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Finishes with resonating citrus and red fruit qualities and a late jolt of chalky minerality that adds closing bite.
