Albet i Noya - 2018
Vivid and vivacious! Colour and feeling of this wine really match up well here. Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes are used with 24 hours maceration on the skins, which brings out the wonderful crimson pink colour. Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel preserves all the fresh fruitiness of this young rosé. Packed with cherry, redcurrant and raspberry flavours, its bound together with a refreshing lick of acidity on the finish. A delicious Catalan rosé from organic pioneers at Albet i Noya. Enjoy within two years of bottling to appreciate its freshness, and thoroughly chill down first. As with most rosés, it can be drunk on its own, or why not try it out with salads, chicken or even paella?
88 Points – The Wine Gang, ‘What a fine rosé this is with it zingy bold pink colour and bucketload of fresh cherry and crunchy red berry fruit. Lots of charm and bold fruit, but structure too, a big orangy core of acidity keeping it all together. Drink with paella perhaps.‘ June 2016 (2015 vintage)
