Wine-making

After rigorous ripeness testing, the winery’s technical crew determine the optimal phenolic ripeness and begin the harvest. In this vintage, the Bobal was harvested in the third week of September and the Cabernet in the second week of October. The wine was vinified using the free-run juice bled from the grapes. After settling the juices with the help of a must chiller, the clear must was fermented at a controlled temperature to bring out its optimal aromatic expression. At the end of the fermentation, the wine was racked and then kept on its fine lees, thus protecting it from any oxidation and bringing extra body and smoothness to the wine. The fining, stabilization and filtering processes before bottling were carried out with the greatest care in order to preserve all of the wine’s character.

Tasting

An attractive, strawberry-pink colour with violet glints. Clean and very bright. Intensely aromatic, fragrant and deliciously appealing with aromas of ripe red berry fruit, strawberries and cream, red fruit gums and light floral hints. On the palate, it’s fresh, full and very perfumed. The delicious appeal on the nose comes through on the palate with excellent balance, making this wine an intensely-flavoured, easy-drinking rosé. The fruit aromas revealed on the nose come through again in a long, lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Excellent with appetisers, rice dishes, roasted vegetables or white meats.
Best served at a temperature of 8-10ºC
