Bodegas Juan Gil Juan Gil Rosé 2019
From our selected vineyards, the grapes of Tempranillo & Syrah are fermented in 16-hectoliter egg-shaped, concrete tanks, below 17° C/62°F to obtain this wonderful Rosé. Then it is aged for 4 months in French oak barrels with the aim to produce a smooth and round mouth-feel.
Light bright orange. Powerful, mineral-tinged raspberry, blood orange and jasmine aromas, backed by a hint of succulent herbs. Fleshy and concentrated yet lithe as well, offering gently sweet red fruit and bitter orange pith avors that are given spine by a core of tangy acidity. In a powerful style but carries no excess weight. Closes chewy, focused and dry, featuring resonating oral and mineral notes and strong persistence. This wine reminds me a lot of a top-notch pink Bandol. -Vinous
