Quartz Hill, Mencía, Rosé, Pyrenees, 2021

Quartz-Hill-Mencia-Rose-2021

Pale onion skin hue. Aromas of watermelon, white peach, sand and dust. Tight and textured. Bone dry with only the vaguest suggestion of watermelon gracing a savoury palate. Refreshing acidity for drive. Points for interest and intensity.

RRP: $25
Alc: 11%
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
