    Winemaker Notes

    Very pretty pale shade of pink, with touches of violet at the edges. Scents of strawberries, flowers and a hint of creaminess. Clean crisp acidity, with delightful fruit, medium length, perfect for summer drinking.

    Campos de Luz, Cariñena, Spain
    Campos de Luz, grown in northeast Spain, is made from grapes of Garnacha which are suited to grow in arid conditions. The vineyard is a single estate with plots of 40 to 80 year old Garnacha bush vines with yields of less than 3 tons per hectare. Other parts of the estate have been more recently planted and are trellised. Historically many of the regions planted Garnacha, from Rioja down to the Priorat.

    Although much of these plantations have been replaced with other varieties, there are still areas where Garnacha dominates, like in the DO Cariñena, where it is 60% of the area planted. The grape varieties of Campos de Luz are mostly Garnacha, although there are also parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Macabeo and Moscatel.

    The range of Campos de Luz wines is based around Garnacha, the most typical and essential of the grape varieties. These wines are aromatic and utterly bound to the history of the region.

    Carinena

    View all wine

    This northeastern Spanish town is believed to be the origin of the grape with the same name. However, Carinena (in French, known as Carignan) has all but been abandoned in favor of Garnacha, which is better suited for its arid climate. The region of Carinena also produces fine examples of whites based on Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Parellada and others.

    Rosé Wine

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
