Silver Medal Winner Global Masters Rosé 2018

Description

Varieties
Grenache (100%)

Terroir
The Grenache is from 20 year old bush vines grown at 420m in the Mas de Cabrera vineyards in Gandesa. Soils at Mas de Cabrera are rich in limestone with very little organic matter. The vines are dry farmed. Despite the hot dry summer, picking was delayed until the 28th September for optimum ripeness.

Production
The grapes were hand picked before chilling to 2°C. After passing over a selection table, the grapes were destemmed and crushed, then held in the press for 4 hours to pick up colour. After a gentle pressing the resulting pink juice underwent a controlled fermenta- tion at 16°C.

Analysis
– Alcohol content: 14.5%
– Total acidity: 5.4 g/l as Tartaric
– Volatile acidity: 0.37 g/l
– Residual sugar: 1.2 g/l

Tasting Notes
The gorgeous lively colour reveals a mixed fresh and stewed strawberry core with hints of Valencia orange and candied fruits.

Food Pairing
Excellent as an aperitif or serve with grilled chicken, crab salad, or grilled tuna. Also an interesting pairing with sushi and vegetable dishes such as ratatouille.

Serving Suggestions
The wine is ideally served at 10-12°C.

    Probably the best rosé I’ve ever had.

    This is simply the best rosé you can buy for the price.
    The colour is full and suggests that the winemaker doesn’t flirt with designer wines but wants the best from the grapes. The quality is fantastic, the flavours are summer in a glass. Enjoy this at any time of the year, I do.

    This is our standard go-to wine for the summer months. Also had it with our Turkey at Christmas. Nice and fruity. Packs a punch but not unbalanced at all.

    Strawberries are often mentioned when describing rosé but the difference here is this is more like very ripe stewed strawberries, pomegranate and blood oranges pop in as well along with other red fruits. The flavour is really quite intense, a bit of spice with maybe some nutmeg and cinnamon in the background. The wine is bone dry but with some lovely bright acidity which keeps it tasting fresh and vibrant. I’m not a big drinker of rosé but this is up there with the best I’ve tasted.
