PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:Liquid Geography Garnacha Rosé pairs well Paella de Mariscos (seafood paella), Tortilla Española, Croquetas de Jamón (Ham croquettes), Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic shrimp), Soft cheeses and charcuterie.
VINIFICATION AND AGING:At harvest, Garnacha grapes are picked and brought to the winery to be de-stemmed and crushed. The stems are discarded, and the skins and juice are pumped into a tank. In a few hours, the grape skins begin to separate from the juice. Once the cap has formed, the pink-colored juice is pumped or “bled off” into a tank to ferment. The wine is aged in 8 months in stainless steel to allow expressive aromatics to evolve while maintaining freshness before release.
LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE:The estate-owned vineyards are located in the towns of Badaran, within the Rioja Alta at approximately 2,044 ft elevation. The soils are clay and limestone.
TASTING NOTES:This vibrant and complex rosé from the high-altitude hills of Rioja Alta offers aromas of Rainier cherries and wild strawberries coupled with flavors of red currant, pomegranate and dry herb notes. On the palate, the wine is structured with ripe tangy red fruit and soft tannins finishing with spice and dried herbs.
