Terra Felix La Vie En Rose 2011

A 100% Mataro Rosé made from both the skin contact and saignee methods, with each portion being brought together for the final wine.

Good red/ black fruit aromatics with cherry, rose, blackberry supported by some herbal tinges.   Palate shows more of the same, a bit of fruit sweetness add a touch of palate weight - it did spend 3 months on lees for a little texture, a touch more wouldn't go amiss in my opinion.  It's fresh and juicy, good citrus hints - acid pops up a little toward the back end before a truncated finish.  

All up, juicy and easy going.  Well priced given where it is at.  88/ 89 - Good

Tasted on: 7th October, a Flower Day
