Chivite Las Fincas Rosado 2022

Vinos de la Tierra de Castilla, SpainThe idea of creating the Las Fincas range was born from the longstanding friendship between the Chivite and Arzak families. Juan Mari Arzak Arratibel is a Spanish chef, and owner of Arzak restaurant in San Sebastian. He is considered one of the great masters of New Basque cuisine, something he describes as "evolutionary, investigatory, and avant-garde." This is the third wine from the collaboration between Julián Chivite and the Arzak family, and it is delicious. It is hand picked, carefully sorted, gently pressed, and aged for a long time in oak barrels. You would not notice any wood in this superbly delicate pink. Floral and stuffed full of red fruits, a precision of acidity fires up a mineral palate, pitching raspberries, pomegranates, and grapefruit. Unsurprisingly, this is a gastronomic rosé, from its complex, silky textures to its ability to complement everything from simple pizza to a main course, such as lemon chicken. The blend is 65/35 garnacha tinta and tempranillo.Tasted: 22 March 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
