Winemaker's Notes

This light and refreshing Rose is made from a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura grown on south-facing slopes comprised of chalky clay over layers of white rock. Temerature controlled fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats and the wine was bottled without further aging.

Blend: 50% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha, 10% Viura

Critical Acclaim

"Pale orange. Lively, mineral-accented aromas of tangerine and strawberry, with a hint of melon adding depth. Juicy and smooth in texture, offering sappy red berry flavors and a hint of bitter citrus pith. Finishes dry and nervy, with a bracing jolt of white pepper."
