Comments

The nose is perfumed by red fruit and floral aromatics with smoky and citric notes. Raspberry and orange persist on a long finish. This wine is the only Galician rosé fermented and aged in barrels. Avancia Rosé is not technically a D.O. Valdeorras wine as rosé style wines are not recognized by the D.O. An extremely unique, refreshing, varietal rosé.
