Bodegas Ayuso Castillo de Benizar Cabernet Sauvignon Rosado 2020
Located in the middle of La Mancha, what many consider the heart of Spain, lies Bodegas Ayuso. It was founded in 1947 when it began producing and selling bulk wine, typical for many Spanish producers at the time. In 1961, they shifted to bottling their own production and have developed and evolved ever since. In 2014, they constructed a new cellar in which they can store up to 12,000 Bordeaux barrels. As one of the largest producers of the region, they create a multitude of different wines, including the Castillo del Benizar range, a collection of wines that are designed to be juicy, easy drinking and approachable. Their 2020 Rosado is produced with Cabernet Sauvignon and exudes a vibrant petal pink colour and a heady nose of strawberry confiture, cherry and raspberry. A more vinous style that remains fresh and expressive of its Cabernet roots.
Robin says 'There are a number of rosé styles - some are light and gently fruit nuanced while others are more expressive, darker and a bit strutured. This 2019 Cabernet Rosado comfortably lies between the two offering a bit more density, structure and fruit than the lighter steles but also remains fresh and juicy.'
