About The Wine & Winemaking Process:
La Rosa is a fresh and aromatic rosé at its most elegant expression. A distinct Mediterranean character with wild fruit/citrus notes and subtle, elegant floral tones bringing clean definition. Captivating and fresh on the palate with delicate yet vervy energy.
The soils where the grapes are grown are primarily clay and limestone and very compact. Vineyards are farmed organically with biodynamic practices in place. This rosé is made in the traditional method with no additives, stabilization or filtration. Harvested in small bins and macerated on the skins for four hours. Primary fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks for 15 days. This was followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
This results in a wine that is diaphanous orange-pink, with vibrant red berry, citrus fruit and floral scents, plus hints of chalky minerals and fennel. Dry and racy in the mouth, offering lively strawberry, cherry and tangerine flavors that show a weightless quality. Closes very long and silky, with resonating florality and a hint of spiciness.
