2018 Rosado "In Wonderland" (Forlong, Bodegas)

Bodega de Forlong, Rosado “In Wonderland”, Cadiz, Andalucía, Spain 2018

{organic} 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Amphora aged)

APRICOT & MINERAL. DRY BUT LUSH, THICK TEXTURE. JUICY.

Alex and Rocio, the winegrower husband and wife couple who are Bodega de Forlong, tell me that this rosé made using Cabernet Sauvignon shows none of the peppery (pyrazine) flavors of the grape because it was only in contact with the skins for one hour. The thick, viscous texture for a rosé is unusual, and comes from keeping the juice at a cold temperature for a very long time to build up naturally occurring glycerin before fermentation begins.

Serving Suggestion: Butter seared scallops drizzled w/ warm egg yolk. Classic New England lobster roll. Spaghetti alla Carbonara w/ lardo Iberico.
