Marques de Caceres Rioja Rosada

By | January 26, 2007

I love pink wine with paella. This week I had a Marques de Caceres Rioja Rosada 2005, made from Tempranillo and Garnacha.

It’s exuberantly pink, bringing cheer on even the glummest days. It smells clean and with quite a hit of redcurrants and raspberries along with a lightly floral aroma.

It’s dry with a medium acidity, making it far more suited to food than California’s pinkies.

There’s a touch of tannin which gives it a bit of body, and 13.5% alcohol boosts that. The fruitiness carries through with more fresh berry flavours.

Sensibly priced, I got mine from Majestic .  It makes for a great wine with food, and the screw-cap just begs to be taken out on picnics in the summertime.

    Mmmmmm….Paella. It’s starting to get a bit warm here in Memphis. Almost rose time!
