Try This $14 Spanish Rosé

Malcolm Jolley finds a rosé from a distinguished Spanish house…

I am a big fan of dry rosé and I love how it has become a regular summertime drink in Canada. But… I’ll confess that I don’t love all the rosés, some of which seem to me to be more like a non-descript white wine than true pink one. I prefer to experience rosé as a light red wine, and I am looking for red fruit beyond a whiff of strawberry. The Beronia Rosé 2019 ($13.95 | LCBO# 323519) is a real rosé in this way. Bubble gum pink in colour and made by the great Rioja house, Beronia’s rosé is a blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Garnacha that delivers a purposeful punch of bight red cherry and a touch of peach that maintains a pleasingly long finish. It’s bone dry at only 2 grams of residual sugar per litre and crisp in refreshing acidity. It’s a perfect hot weather wine, on it’s own as an aperitif or with snacks or a light meal. At $14 it’s certainly worth a try.
