This crisp and lush Rosé from the Campo de Borja DO in northeastern Spain is 100% Garnacha. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century.
About the Vineyard:
Vineyards with an age of 10-15 years varying in altitude from 1,200 to 2,400 feet. Small parcels of the Tabuenca, Borja, and Pozuelo Vineyards are sourced for this wine.
Like its red companion, this rosé is fermented in stainless steel and sees no oak aging, preserving the vibrantly youthful characteristics of the fruit.
Very pretty salmon color in the glass. Loads of floral and red berry aromas with cherry, strawberry, and raspberry flavors on the palate. The creamy mouthfeel leads to hints of spice on the pleasantly tart finish.
Pairs with seafood dishes like crab salad, baked salmon, and fish tacos; or with classic ones like a ham and gruyére quiche paired with a green salad, chicken based dishes, and also goes very well with spicy asian inspired dishes.
