GRAPE:100% Mencía. Vines planted since 1963. Tended in river stone and clay soil at 525 m (1,722 ft) elevation. This is a vegan wine.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:This dry, floral rosé exhibits strawberry flavors and pairs well with pizza, white meats, salmon and grilled vegetables.
VINIFICATION AND AGING:The free-run juice is drained at low temperature without previous maceration and under an inert atmosphere. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 12 days at 12C. 100% unoaked. Some of the carbonation is kept in the wine during fermentation to exhibit some fizz at the time of drinking.
LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE:Produced from vines planted in 1963 located in Bierzo. The vineyards are located both in the lower valley (clay) and in the mountains where slate is the most common soil type. The average elevation of the vineyards is 525 m (1,722 ft) elevation. Temperature from April to October average 16.3C (61.3F) with annual rainfall of 626mm (24.6").
TASTING NOTES:Pale pink. Aromas and flavors of strawberries, red-currant and white pepper show very good clarity and energy. Concentrated yet lithe rosado, with a nervy acid structure providing shape and lift. Finishes taut and minerally, with an echo of red berries.
