Izadi is based in Villabuena in the Rioja Alavesa, the highest part of Rioja. The hillside winery (whose precipitous slope allows for gravity assisted production) was founded in 1987 by Gonzalo Antón as a modern breakaway from the traditional style of wine produced by other members of his family.

 

100% Garnacha (Grenache), a variety with a vibrant fruit flavour that makes it particularly well-suited for rosé winemaking. The fruit is sourced from a selection of low-yielding vineyards grown at a high altitude, 790 metres above sea level, which helps maintain both flavour concentration and delicacy in the wine.

 

All grapes were hand-harvested. They were destemmed and softly crushed, then the free run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks. This wine saw no malolactic fermentation or barrel ageing, to maintain the vibrancy of this rosé.

 

This rosé has a lovely pale salmon colour. It has aromas of strawberry, raspberry and red cherries, alongside notes of white peach and pear. The finish is long and very elegant.
