Product description

In the Valley we use the slopes of the Obarenes mountains to grow the garnacha grapes used in our reds. They are vineyards which ripen well due to the exposure to the sun, but in the case of the Rosado, we prefer to plant on the other side, furthest away from the sun, with fresher air which helps us to preserve the notes of fresh, sharp fruit. A very light, bright colour, mainly pale orange-tinged salmon pink. In this harvest we see a return to very fresh, acidic fruit which dominates the whole sensory profile of the wine. On the nose a complex aroma of white-fleshed fruit with stones. In the aftertaste the olfactory notes are transformed into something finer and more complex in which, as well as the previously mentioned aromas, we can detect lychees, apricot and faint reminders of the bakery shop. In the mouth it proves deeply attractive since, although the tart fruit is still to the fore, the overall taste is softened by the fine, elegant, well-integrated lees. It is a wine with a long finish which combines sweetness, freshness and acidity.
