Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2015)89 pts

Aug 2016 - Reviewer : Luis Gutierrez - It was a matter of time until a (very pale) Rosé was produced at the new winery under the popular brand, and so the 2015 Viña Real Rosado is already here, a little bit of an upscale, very pale Rosé (compared with the basic Cune one). It is produced with the unusual (nowadays) blend of 15% Tempranillo and 85% Viura, so a 'clarete' rather than a rosado. In fact, the nose is more Viura than Tempranillo, and I guess with time it will evolve more and more to the characteristics of a white. So it has good freshness and zip, a discrete nose and a tasty finish.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2015)89 pts

Bright orange-pink. Strawberry, red currant and tangerine on the nose, backed by a subtle floral nuance. Smooth and open-knit, offering plush red berry and orange pith flavors and a touch of back-end bitterness. Finishes supple and with good length, leaving a sappy red fruit note behind. -- Josh Raynolds

Lively flavors of berry, orange peel, fresh herbs and rose mingle in this exuberant rosé. Fresh and focused, with juicy acidity. The floral finish brings you back for another sip. Drink now.

James Suckling (2015)92 pts

A delicate rosé showing a white-flower, orange-blossom and stone character. Full-bodied with bright acidity, pomegranate flavors and a soft texture leading to a fresh and citrusy finish. Dried peaches and strawberries. A blend of viura and tempranillo. Drink now.

Natalie McLean (2015)88 pts

Lots of mouth-watering acidity and savoury dried herbs on the palate of this light Spanish rose. Very pretty and refreshing. Needs grilled veggies.
