Castillo de Benizar Cabernet Sauvignon Rosado 2022

DO La Mancha, La Mancha, Spain

100% Cabernet Sauvignon | 12.5% ABV


We are delighted to offer the 2020 Rosado from Castillo de Benizar produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It exudes a vibrant petal blush pink colour and a heady nose of strawberry confiture, cherry and raspberry. A more vinous style that remains fresh and expressive of its Cabernet roots. A single-varietal wine based exclusively on their best Cabernet Sauvignon vines.
