Reviews and Ratings

Brigitte rated this wine as 90/100
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A dry and refreshing Rosé from Spain's Rioja region, made from Grenache and Viura varietals. Pretty pale coral colour with red berry and violet fragrances and delicious raspberry, watermelon and herbal flavours on the mouthwatering palate. Enjoy this with your charcuterie platter or fennel sausages.
Tasted Feb. 2018
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of strawberries, mandarin orange as well as other citrus notes. This is a light, bright wine with a vibrant acidity. Would pair nicely with seafood. Tasted October 2017.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A blend of Garnacha (75%) and Viura (25%) this is such a "pretty" wine. Beautiful salmon rose in color, this wine is very fragrant displaying lots of floral (red roses and white lilies) as well as red fruit. The palate is dry and refreshing, perfect on its own or with light appetizers or soups.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pretty and pink! Pale salmon with fresh berry aromas. Strawberry, raspberry, floral notes of honeysuckle and peonies. Apricot, yellow apple and some ripe Asian pears. Flavours are very fruity and fresh as well with ripe red berries, a hint of herbal notes. High acidity, medium minus body, and finish. Pair with salad, scallops and fish.

Conde Valdemar (2016) is a great value Spanish rosé from the Rioja wine region. Perfect as an aperitif or companion to seafood. This vibrant Spanish rosé is created from 75% Grenache grapes and 25% Viura grapes also known as Macabeo which is a white wine grape. Look for light floral notes and a clean and crisp acidity on this wine perfect for seafood dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
