Daterra Viticultores - Laura Lorenzo "Camino de la Frontera" Rosado 2018 (750ml)
A new wine from Laura Lorenzo, from a far off region we hardly see production from. This is mostly a local variety Juan Garcia, co-planted and co-fermented with Tempranillo, Bobal, Rufete, Mencía, Garnacha, and more from 100-130 year-old vines in the town of Fermoselle, in a region called Arribes del Duero (right next to Portugal, south of Galicia).
This is the first time the Rosado has ever (been made?) or arrived here. We got a tiny amount. It is taut, lean, mineral-cored, with a sour cherry and herbacious thing going on. So evident on the Juan Garcia. We love it's salty kick both on its own or with a smoked ham and cheese sandwich with a crispy buttered brioche bun and plenty of pickles. Get it while you can!
