Lousas Rosende 2021


$71.50 per bottle | $429.00 case of 6  

From a single vineyard of 28-60-year-old Mencia vines in Rosende, the soils remind us of St. Joseph and Cornas from the northern Rhône with granite crystals flecked through the sand. 

Full of cherries, berries, wild strawberries and a slightly savoury, umami finish

VINTAGE REPORT: In Galicia, 2021 was a classic vintage in Ribeira Sacra, a throwback to earlier times: abundant rain in the fall and winter, a dry and warm March, and then a cool April and May that threatened (but did not deliver) frost damage. The summer started humid and mild but became hot and quite dry, with a few scattered storms that moderated ripening. Harvest started on September 11th
