Casa La Rad 'Solarce' Rioja Rosado 2022
Casa La Rad 'Solarce' Rioja Rosado 2022
Fabulous Rose from one of wine Supremo Tim Atkins' favourite Rioja producers. Lovely red berry fruit flavours with gentle spice on the finish and a hint of orange zest on the nose. Fleshy and open-knit, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavours that turn spicier on the back half. The orange and red berry notes linger on the nicely persistent finish, which shows subtle firming grip. A surprising and gorgeous Rose from Rioja to be enjoyed all year round. If you enjoy a decent glass of rose - you must try this !

"The 2020 Solarce Rosado from Casa La Rad is composed of twenty-five percent each of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha and Mazuelo. The wine is a very pale salmon color and offers up a beautifully expressive nose of white cherries, nectarine, salty white soil tones, spring flowers and a gentle touch of Rioja spice. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied and youthful, with a lovely core and mineral undertow, zesty acids and fine focus and grip on the long and very promising finish. This is drinkable today, but clearly built to age gracefully and will be far more complex with a bit of bottle age. First class Rioja Rosado! 2021-2030+.

"Cool down with this refreshing white from ‘the birthplace of wine’
Spanish rosado was traditionally made in a darker pink color, almost a light red, and aged for a year before release. In recent years, winemakers have responded to a market that clamors for the palest of pale pinks to drink the year after harvest. The 2020 Solarce from Casa La Rad is wild — it tastes almost like watermelon-flavored Pop Rocks spiked with mint. It has what wine fiends call “lift,” meaning the aromas and flavors seem to levitate out of the glass. No coaxing needed here, just an open mind and a smile. Alcohol by volume: 13.5 percent.
