Woods Crampton Mataro Rosé 2012

The first thing you notice is the colour: an almost deep, vibrant red.  And it's more like a light red in some respects.  Approach with your nose and you're greeted with spicy, wooden, earthen and savoury aromas - it betrays its Mataro roots.  It's ably supported by underlying berry compote, adding fruit to the savoury.

In the mouth, dry with a savoury tang.  There are hints of dried fruit - dried citrus - and it's beautifully refreshing, refreshing with with excellent driven citrus acids.

Concludes with good flow across the black with generous length.  90/ 91 - Good/ Very Good
