2012 Xavier Clua "El Sola d'en Pol" Rosado Terra Alta

SKU #1130012

If southern Catalunya'sTerra Alta D.O. is increasingly on the map for producing some of Spain's best values, then Xavier Clua would have to be on my short list of producers in this region who really hit the $15 and under price point with some emphatic values. This is our first time working with the rosado, a blend of Garnacha and Syrah. Given the beautiful, relatively paler pink color and fresh flavor profile, it would seem that the maceration is on the shorter side for this rosé, emphasizing juicy red fruit flavors and hints of watermelon. Though the fruit is tasty and up front, this wine finishes nicely dry and would give most any more expensive French rosé from similar grapes a real run for the money!

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant.
