CARIVINO Tasting Review:
We sat down with our friends Chelsey and Jim at JS Fine Wines to review our featured wine, the Alonso Lopez Rose’ Tempranillo. Wow! This elegant and medium body wine displays a beautiful range of pink Morganite in the glass to a classic salmon pink in the bottle. Crisp and balanced with notes of fresh watermelon aqua Fresca, red fruit strawberries & raspberries, and subtle hints of green apple taffy. Absolutely delicious. We are becoming bigger fans of Tempranillo Rose’ - and Alonso Lopez continues to justify that trend. “Pairs perfectly with summer!” Drink and enjoy chilled anytime outdoors with grilled prawns or barbeque chicken drumettes.
Hurry and try the Alonso Lopez Tempranillo before they are gone. This one is sure to impress you and your guest. Available at JS Fine Wines or other select wine retailers.
Did you know? Free-run Juice is a term used by winemakers to describe the juice that runs freely during the crushing process. As grapes are placed on top of each other, the weight will naturally cause the grapes nearest the bottom to release their juice. This juice represents the highest quality in part because it has the least contact with the skins and stems during the crushing phase.
