Talking About the Wines:
-Vinous Media (Make Way for Even More Rosé), June ’18 gave 91 points to 2016 Giné Rosat. “Pale lurid red. Mineral-accented cherry, raspberry, candied rose, and a suggestion of orange zest on the deeply perfumed nose. Shows very good depth and energy to the sappy raspberry, and bitter cherry flavors, which pick up a minerally aspect as the wine opens up. Smoothly blends power, elegance, and finishes with strong mineral cut, and floral lift.”
-Wine Spectator, May ’18 gave 90 points to 2016 Giné Rosat. “This has the structure and depth of flavor of a light red, but the lithe texture, and lively acidity keep this firmly in the rosé family. The color is deep, nearly crimson. Light tannins support the cherry, quinine, and bright herbal flavors…”
-Wine Spectator, Oct ’16 gave 90 points to 2014 Giné Rosat in the article, "Spain's New Approach." Buil and Giné offers a rare and distinctive rosé (rosat in Catalan); the 2014 blends Garnacha (80%) with Merlot for a dry, firm, and full-bodied version, a good match with food."
-Vinous Media (Explore All Things Wine), Jan '16 gave 90 points to 2014 Giné Rosat. "High-pitched red berry, blood orange, and floral scents are complemented by hints of dusty minerals, and white pepper. Delivers a solid punch, but comes off lithe with a strong finishing cut, and very good, floral-dominated persistence."
