Notes

This ethereal and lighthearted rosé comes from the Hacienda Molleda family estate in the municipality of Tosos, part of the Cariñena protected denomination of origin.

A super fun rosé that’ll bring a smile to your face! Easygoing and playful, Hacienda Molleda’s Garnacha Rosado fills your nose with rosy scents of wild strawberries, red fruit, light flowers, and lollipops. On the palate, it's fresh and dry with a smooth texture that coats the mouth. The structure and balanced flavour may come as a surprise after the flamboyant bouquet of pleasant aromas.
