Santa Cruz de Artazu Artazuri Garnacha Rosado

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Here we have another dry, bright style of Rose from Spain for you to try. Made entirely from grenache, there are plenty of vibrant red berries on the nose, along with hints of roses, blanched almonds and slight meaty savouriness. The palate is lighter-bodied and juicy with strawberry-like flavours, friendly acidity, and a dry, savoury-edged finish. Try it with some grilled mackerel fishcakes.

Winemaker's Notes

As much as Fino sherry, Rosado is a culturally specific drink in Spain. Light, dry and refreshing but also tasty and satisfying, Rosados are drunk widely. Drinkable at any and all times of the day, including simply all day, and going well with just about everything you’d eat, it’s almost always Rosado-o’clock in Spain. Rosat is the same thing in the Catalan dialect.

A delightful juicy pink ... super refreshing, and delicious. Red currant, raspberry and strawberry intermingles with floral touches of acacia and almond tree.

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Light, crunchy, salivatingly dry style with floral strawberry bouquet and juicy palate with enough fruit flavours to make it interesting.
Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Delicate blackberry aromas and a fresh, light-bodied palate with persistent flavours.

Matt Skinner (2009 Vintage) says
Organically farmed and dry-grown, old vines provide the starting point for this mouthwatering, drink-now rose from the Navarra outpost of Rioja-based legends, Artadi. From its pretty pink colour to its compact and fresh nose of wild raspberries, juicy red apples and dried flowers, this bone-dry rose from 100 per cent grenache is bright, bouncy and as good with food as it is simply by itself. Drink with cured meats, smoked almonds and anchovy-stuffed olives.
