2017 Ercavio Rosado
BLEND | 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo)
VINEYARDS | From younger vineyard parcels of the estate with an average age of 20 years grown on limestone and clay soils at 750 meters altitude. Handpicked at the end of September.
WINEMAKING | The grapes are macerated for 8 hours and then the rosé juice is drawn off and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control. Aged sur lie in stainless steel until December.
TASTING NOTES | The Ercavio Rosado simply screams BOWL FULL OF WILD STRAWBERRIES. It is a light to medium bodied Rosado, with plenty of juicy fruit and tangy acidity. Like combining a red and a yellow Skittle and then subtracting 90% of the sugar. A delicious friend for summer fare.
