(90) CVNE Vina Real 2019 Rosado (Spain)
This Rioja rosé is a blend of 75% viura, 15% tempranillo and 10% garnacha. It is a bright-pink-to-salmon color in the glass with plenty of body for a Rosado-style wine. On the nose, slightly musky notes of flint and mineral are present with flecks of strawberry and other red fruits. The strawberry notes are confirmed on the palate and balanced by a clean, mineral and saline finish with some length. Great for spicy Asian cuisine or a grilled salmon salad. ($12.99) BD
Cvne, is situated in Rioja in the traditional neighborhood of the station, where the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves, for the main reason of transporting their goods to the port of Bilbao.
In 1879, two brothers decided to set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created. This cellar still reflects the origins of the company and is kept in the traditional neighborhood of the Haro station.
The Cune winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.
