2018 chateau josephine rosé
Yecla is the smallest and northernmost wine zone in Murcia, far southeastern Spain; it’s named after the town Yecla in the center of the zone. The climate here is transitional between coastal Mediterranean influences and the heat of Spain’s arid interior. Viniculture was first introduce to this area by the Phoenicians, however wine did not become important to the area’s economy until the 20th century. The most important local red varietal here is Monastrell (Mourvedre) from which 85% of this skin contact rosé is produced, along with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a light bodied rosé, with excellent mouth feel. On the nose you’ll detect floral aromas. On the palate you’ll no doubt taste blackberries along with a hint of truffle. Extraordinary value in a Kosher, Kosher for Passover, Mevushal Rosé.
