(2016) At restaurant Los Roques in Los Abrigos we were eating a lamb tagine, so thought we’d try this deeply coloured rosé that I’d seen another table order a few nights before in another restaurant. Frontos is a large and relatively new bodega, unusually sited in the south of the island, and using mostly replanted old vineyards. It also boasts what it claims is the highest vineyard in Europe, above the cloud layer on Mount Teide at 1700 metres. This blend of 70% Syrah with 30% Listán Prieto was abundantly fruity with a cherry cola and red liquorice, slightly confected appeal. Simple and quaffable stuff, it was a touch lacking fruit on the palate, but indeed did its job with the food very well. 84/100. 20 Euros in the restaurant.
