Akutain Rioja Gran Reserva Rosado 2016

MCF Rare Wine

"Composed entirely of Tempranillo from the estate's highest altitude site, it's made in the saignée method, fermented in fiberglass, malo is blocked, then spends 52 months in a combo of used American and French barrels, and then one final month in new barrels before resting in bottle prior to release.
Think of the rustic, oxidative brilliance of the Lopez Rosado, combined with the vigorous, structured profile of Chateau Simone's Rosé. Think of beautifully textured berry/citrus fruits, with tremendous substance, a deeply savory/nutty mid-palate and incredibly focused acidity on the tightly wound finish. " - Matt Franco
