This rosé is like a young maiden whose purity and sweetness will seduce you. She comes from a good family, as we commonly say, she is educated and has a promising future; or, to translate into wine language: it is made by experienced producers from top quality Mencía grapes, grown on steep slopes in the vicinity of O Barco de Valdeorras, and cared for by expert hands. The result, judge for yourselves: simply adorable.
Avanthia Rosé is tastefully dressed: a lovely redcurrant colour, lively and bright. On the nose, it is natural and genuine. Best not served very cold, you will notice how it releases all its aromas in the glass after a bit of time and air: fresh aromas, with citrus notes, really fresh fruit and touches of shelled almonds and subtle nuances of fresh new wood (Please note! We're not talking of barrels, or vanilla, but a smell you get when you come across a carpenter at work: that smell of wood shavings, a subtle but interesting background).
Now taste it: it's like biting into fresh grapes, the nearest thing to grape juice, without any decoration, a smooth texture, lively and fresh, which caresses the palate whilst also displaying intensity, sinew and volume; this is a wine that gains in density and vigour with every minute spent in the glass, without straying from that line of finesse and delicacy. It is sweetish but shows very good acidity; a rosé that is most inviting to drink and totally moreish too. It has some viscosity, an oily feel, sweet-tasting, like taking a mouthful of fresh strawberry, a wine which despite being light and delicate is chewable too. Quite simply, delightful.
