A VALUE FOR MONEY JUGGERNAUT | NEW ZEALAND'S FAVOURITE SPANISH RED.
4.5 STARS 92/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Smooth, rounded and supple, making it immediately appealing."
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.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's splendidly ripe and fragrant on the nose with Black Doris plum, sweet cherry, rich floral and warm spice aromas, leading to a flavoursome palate offering juicy fruit flavours with plump mouthfeel, finishing long and silky. Smooth, rounded and supple, making it immediately appealing."
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."
Glad to see Rojo back - one of my favourites
