Details for Avanthia Rosé 2014
Bottle size and vintage
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.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 9ºC and 12ºC
da provare con paella
la combinazione con la paella è super. è un rosato, che di solito non amo, con molto carattere. Profumo e sapore intenso.
The Bodegas Avanthia winery is located on the slate soil hillsides of the area of Valdeorras in Galicia. The name of this area comes from the fact that Romans mined gold here (Val-de-oras roughly means 'golden valley' in Latin). Nowadays, its terroir is ideal for two of the most important indigenous grape varieties in Spain: the Godello and Mencia grapes. Jorge Ordóñez was the first wine merchant to introduce the Godello grape to the USA and for many years he was the only ...
