El Coto Rioja Rose
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: The El Coto vineyards, 8 farms, are spread throughout all of the subareas of the Denomination of Origin Rioja. The use of traditional indigenous varieties as well as the newly authorised ones allows them to maintain all the typical characteristics of Rioja in their wines.
WINEMAKING: At the winery the grapes are covered with a curtain of carbonic gas which protects them from any oxidation. This same gas is used for instant chilling of the grapes prior to pressing. This Rosé is produced in part through the bleeding of the free-run juice from the grapes in the winery and in part through the cold maceration and subsequent pressing. In both cases, the must obtained is racked for cleaning before fermentation. The musts and the fermentation are carried out with select yeasts, and at a very low temperature to promote the generation of all the aromas of fresh strawberries that the wine exhibits.
TASTING NOTE: The colour is pale pink, almost strawberry. The nose has a hint of sweetness of fresh strawberries and caramel. On the palate it is fresh as well as sweet. Easy to drink and to enjoy.
