    Winemaker Notes

    This is a gorgeous and juicy rose made from 100% Pinot Noir. Wonderful red rose to salmon skin color, with ample aromas of cherry, strawberry and spice. It has a medium bodied, soft and fruity pallet with a great refreshing finish. Aged two years in bottle before released.

    Marques de Gelida, Penedes, Spain
    Image of winery
    Marques de Gelida is owned by six family growers that have roots in the Penedes area since the 1600's. Located in the northeast zone of Penedes, locally know as Penedes Alta, the vineyards are among the highest in the D.O. Mostly planted to Xarel-Lo, Parellada and Macabeo, with additional plantings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with the oldest plots being 84 years old.

    The entire estate is dry farmed. The climate here is mostly Mediterranean, but there are sub climates in the mountains that are more continental. The productions for Marques de Gelida comes from the free run juice and first soft pressing of the grapes, it's fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures, then Methode Champanoise is employed. The finished product is aged 2.5 years in bottle before release.

    These sparkling wines are a much greater value than their prices suggest. They're vintage, Brut Reserve cavas with tremendously high quality viticulture and winemaking going into them. By Penedes standards, their production is extremely small (25,000 cases).

    A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan) for high quality reds and rosès.

    Champagne & Sparkling

    Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

    The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
