This estate always turns out a classy rosé and the 2019 Rosado is no exception. Based largely on Grenache with 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo, its light pink color is followed by attractive notes of wild strawberries, white peach, and flowers. It’s medium-bodied, seamless, and beautifully balanced, and has a good mix of both richness and freshness.

VINIFICATION

Hand-harvested, the grapes arrive at the winery in 200-kilo containers. After a period of 5 hours gentle maceration in the press, the must ferments at a temperature controlled at around 16-18ºc for 15-20 days. This enables us to preserve to the maximum the aromatic complexity and intensity of the grapes from which the wine is made. Once fermentation is complete, it remains with its fine lees in suspension for 12 weeks in order to heighten the smooth mouth-feel. Before bottling it undergoes cold stabilization.

TASTING

A beautiful pale pink Provençal color. A very pretty nose of flowers, especially rose petals, and almonds. Fruit aromas come through well too, red berry fruits, wild strawberries together with some creamy vanilla notes. On the palate, there’s a soft full attack, quite succulent followed by lovely acidity that balances out the first impressions of sweetness. The wine then develops beautifully with a tangy, refreshing finish. A nicely balanced rosé with surprising complexity.
