The whole clusters of grapes are brought into the winery and after destemming they are placed in the press, remaining there for some time while the must macerates as it drains through, taking some color from the skins. They are then slowly and gently pressed with very little pressure so as to avoid those acquiring grassy flavors and so as to preserve the pale, salmon-pink color. We could say that it is a “Rosado de Lágrima” a rosé made from the first pressing.
VALSERRANO ROSADO 2019
This rosé wine has been made from red Garnacha grapes and a small proportion of Tempranillo, carefully harvested with manual selection in the vineyard. The Garnacha is the most widely grown grape variety in all the countries of the Mediterranean area. In La Rioja it is mainly cultivated in the lower reaches of the Ebro valley. In districts at a higher altitude such as the Rioja Alavesa, it is a minority variety and needs years with kind weather conditions to give its best quality.
COLOUR: Pale pink with a slightly salmon hue.
AROMAS: Stone fruit and fresh strawberry notes with sappy aromas and
peaty mineral nuances coming though, and a fresh, Atlantic finish.
MOUTH: A subtle attack, but it has backbone. Persistent fruit and
freshness in the aftertaste. Pleasant fresh acidity.
