Bodegas Castaño Rosado 750ml
Indicative blend: 90% Monastrell, 5% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pale strawberry pink colour with a little depth and pale purple hues on rim. The nose is well-proportioned with moderately deep aromas of pomegranate, strawberries and red florals, along with an earthy, thirst-quenching mineral element. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features a soft, rounded core of light, savoury pomegranate fruit entwined with notes of cranberries, earth and florals. The mouthfeel is balanced with a soft sweetness and gentle flow that carries to a clean, dry finish. This is a light, soft rosé with a gentle core of fruit and a dry finish.
