Wine of the Week - Hacienda 2009 Rosa Rosa


Hacienda de las Rosas brings us this excellent blush, a white syrah (red grapes with the skins removed).

The nose is full of floral scents.  As you might guess, it smells like roses in particular.

This is a surprisingly full-bodied wine, weightier than you'd expect from a blush, but not heavy.  It's sugary sweet, but modestly so.  There's a rich honey current running through, with a nice, acidic finish. A great drink for the summer.

11.6% alcohol
