DESCRIPTION


Our hand crafted Rosado is made from the typical Rioja grape varieties Tempranillo and Garnacha, sourced from old vines. A Rosé, that is, thanks to the fermentation with indigenous yeasts and a long contact with its fine lees, more than just fruity, but complex, full-bodied, fresh and very persistent.

Rosé wine made from the varieties Tempranillo (50%) and Garnacha (50%), sourced from old vines (>45 years), grown in vineyards, located in the Rioja Alavesa and the Sonsierra area.

After a manual picking, all the grapes are hand-selected, using vibration and selection tables. Fermentation at cold temperatures in stainless steel tanks, using especially selected indigenous yeasts. Before the wine is bottled in February after the harvest, it remains a couple of month in contact with its fine lees.

TASTING NOTE


Deep purple in color. On the nose, the aroma of raisins and grapes, caramelized almonds, dried cherries and bananas, hints of chocolate and a subtle note of coconut. Velvety and pleasant on the palate that pairs perfectly even with desserts. Wine full of character that combines at the same time the plum compote, blackberry jam, dark cherries and black elderberry. The warmth of Tempranillo is perceived in all its parts, with pleasant toasted aromas.
