Rioja Rose, Bodegas Bagordi DO (Spain)
A warm summery welcome back to Rioja Rose, albeit from a different (if familiar) supplier. Bagordi's offering is a pretty reddish pink hue with an appealingly fruity nose. In the mouth, whilst perfectly easy-drinking it's also surprisingly firm and full-fruited with notably good balance and quite rich flavours of ripe berries. The finish is lingering and satisfying with the same soft fruit hints.
