Azores Wine Company

Vulcânico Rosé

2019 vintage. Vulcanico is the entry level label for the Azores Wine Company. Heroic wine farming on infertile rocky volcanic soils where nothing else would grow with amazing results. This rosé is a multi-varietal field blend from grapes sourced from different growers. Very attractive nose combining fresh strawberries and red currants with flowers and iodine. Light and fresh with juicy red currant flavours, crispy acidity and a distinctive salinity and very good length. Amazing intensity of flavour with only 11,5 % abv. Fantastic value at 9,50 euros. Highly recommended. — 3 days ago

Premium Vintage Rosé Blend

Extroverted elegance! Quite a bit of white nectarine/strawberry purée softly spread on toast and dipped in cream. Or mayhaps that it just feels like cream. Really the texture on this is exquisite. It is wearing elbow length gloves with a fuchsia satin dress and pearls. This wine is. Or maybe that’s what I feel like I’m wearing drinking it. — 11 days ago

Bin end rosé day, the final bottles on another of our longer term aging experiments on value wines.

Nose has Creamsicle orange sherbet, dried peach, dried raspberry, dried papaya, orange slices, white flowers and crushed granite in moist soil.

Palate has tangerine gummy bears, honey, fresh Clementine, fresh apricot, white flowers with perfect acidity, long finish, mild sweetness. A great bottle with life in the bottle still remaining!

@Ian Staub I'd say it really depends, all these bottles were under $8 (just), and showed strong on release, which is likely the key. Not everything ends up a winner, we've had much better luck doing this same experiment on inexpensive German Riesling (sub-$15). The '12 & '13 are doing quite well today, so we are happy. You need to be able to appreciate the changes the wines will make, if you are patient and understand where they might go based on your experiences with aged wines, you will do ok to forget about some wines for a while. For my palate, I really appreciate rosé with a couple years age (min), current release stuff is nice but IMO the youthful acidity can cloud the structure. I like acidity, but like palate complexity more and that usually shows with 1-2Y of age on most rosé. There is always an exception, some are built for the long haul though, Cotat, Simone, RLD Heredia, Enderle & Moll, they will hold 8-10+ without concern.

Very cool. I’ve definitely forgotten about sub $20 bottles not normally considered age-worthy and found them to be magical on opening. ... never had the guts to do it intentionally though. Seems like a great way to learn more about bottle evolution in general.

@Severn Goodwin well said, thank you.

Preignes le Vieux

Paradis Languedoc Rosé Blend

Vintage 2019 | playful smell with minerals, a bit stinky (positive) if tasted blind I would have thought white wine, salty, what a joy! | Paired with lemon sole / limande | second day, hotter, and even more appreciation. Provence rosé is made for 30 degrees plus days. — 6 days ago

Sergia Arcuri

Il Marinetto Calabria Rosé Blend 2019

Electric orange, extraordinary colour. Pale saline nose. Palate is a shapeshifter, strawberry, rose petals, very floral. Finish is fabulously rustic—astringent and tannic, as if to jolt you out of a stupor. Worth seeking out. — 5 days ago
