Bodegas Altos de Torona, Rosal 2015, Rías Baixas, Spain
Tasting Note: A bold, medium-bodied, palate cleanser.
Wonderfully golden in color and slightly pétillant in character, this white blend of Albariño, Caiño Blanco and Loureiro has a nose of yellow pear and nectarine.
On the palate the wine is high in acidity and tartness that completes with a long finish.
The wine’s golden color may lead you to think it will be filled with ripe to overripe fruit, but the wine has an almost-ripened, tart fruit character.
