Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Fresh berry
  • Floral notes
  • Crisp acidity

An approachable but serious Rosé wine, displaying great purity and typicity for the noble Tempranillo grape. This wine is made in a lighter, more elegant style than most Spanish Rosés and shows a pale strawberry colour in the glass, with intense and fresh berry aromas over subtle floral notes. Presenting an excellent concentration and a slightly off-dry finish, beautifully balanced by crisp acidity and a refreshing, savoury note.

Produced from the winemakers own, organically farmed vineyards in Uclés, managed as an integrated ecosystem and studded with centenary oak trees. The region's continental climate with sunny days and cool nights allows the winemaking team to achieve intense fruit and excellent varietal definition, while retaining remarkable freshness. Grapes were picked at night and in the early morning hours and shipped quickly to the state-of-the-art winery for destalking, light crushing and vatting in stainless steel tanks. The wine underwent a short maceration of 7 hours on skins, before pressing. Alcoholic fermentation was stopped by chilling when the wine reached a perfect balance of fruit concentration, acidity and slight residual sweetness.

The Mesta was a powerful association of shepherds in Medieval Castile, controlling the routes for herding sheep across the country. The vineyards are nestled deep in the land of the Mesta, and are still passed over by flocks on their annual migration, an authentic reminder of ancient rights and a cultural cue for continuing co-existence with nature. Trough organic viticulture and respectful winemaking, they produce wines of great purity, reflecting the unique personality of the land.

Food Pairing: A perfect Summer drink and a highly versatile food wine with pasta, rice dishes, vegetables and curries as well as stir-fried, spicier dishes.
