  • Refreshing

"A lovely savoury expression, showing dried apricot, orange peel, apple and oatmeal nuances on the nose, leading to an elegantly weighted palate offering bright fruit flavours with fine texture and crisp acidity" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2022

El Picoteo wines are sourced from 110 hectares of family-owned, single-estate vineyards grown at 700-800 metres altitude using organic farming methods, grown in nutrient poor and limestone-tich soil, with scarce rainfall. The style of the wines is fruit forward, soft and pleasureable to be enjoyed everyday.

Syrah grapes are selected from organically grown and certified vines with a high leaf to fruit ratio to preserve the high acidity and freshness of the grapes. Grapes are carefully chosen and harvested at night in the last week of August, macerated with the skins for 12 hours to extract colour and aromas, then fermented at low temperature for 20 days.

It was a dry, warm year for southern Spain in 2019 with lower-than-average rainfall... resulting in clusters with small, flavoursome berries and high levels of concentration. This meant the vintage was small but of outstanding quality with intensely flavoured wines.

Food Pairing: The freshness, ripe red fruit aromas and softness of this off-dry Rosé wine make if perfect to serve with rice and pasta dishes, grilled seafood and fish, spicy food, a fresh Summer salad as well as cheese. To e enjoyed with food or simly on its own.
