A VALUE FOR MONEY JUGGERNAUT | NEW ZEALAND'S FAVOURITE SPANISH RED.
4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Rojo Garnacha comes from the fifth generation Navarro Lopez family estate and we can say with some authority that it is one of the world’s great value wines. Imported by gifted Spanish wine importer Steve Bennett MW, we understand Rojo to be the top selling Spanish red wine in the New Zealand market and we can assure you that it hasn't achieved such phenomenal success without good reason.
Hand harvested from 40 year-old Grenache vines in southern Spain and made in a modern, vibrantly fruity, opulent style this is a classic expression of immediately attractive, juicy, dark Grenache. It's a perfect anytime red with plenty of body and gluggable charm. Rojo never disappoints.
The winery writes "GranRojo Garnacha is a fruit-packed, vibrant Spanish red created by our dynamic and exciting winemaker team. It's soft-fruited, wonderfully drinkable wine, brilliant with barbecues."
Sam Kim writes "It's instantly appealing on the nose with lifted aromas of dark cherry, toasted nut, clove and floral. The delectably expressed palate offers juicy fruit intensity with fleshy texture and silky tannins, making it delightfully appealing and drinkable."
Glad to see Rojo back - one of my favourites
