Merlot makes a great rosé, light and refreshing with a pleasant summer-fruit fragrance and flavour.
The Castaño family owns over 410 hectares of vineyards in the Yecla DO in south-eastern Spain. 80% of these vineyards are planted with the native Monastrell variety. Castaño symbolises the best of what southern Spain has to offer: rich, warm climate wines made from grapes grown at altitude and transformed into robustly modern wines. For several generations, Bodegas Castaño has been a pioneer in the region.
The Castaño Monastrell Rosé is grown in the Castaño family vineyards, situated in the north of Yecla located at an altitude of 750m above sea level. The vineyards are dry-farmed and the vines are grown on poor, limestone soil. The roots of the vines therefore grow deep into the earth in search for precious minerals and nutrients, which in turn helps to ensure healthy, ripe, flavoursome grapes.
The wine is made 100% from Monastrell. Grapes undergo a direct pressing without maceration of the skins. Fermentation takes place at 16C in stainless steel and undergoes cold stabilisation before bottling. This Monastrell Rosado offers fresh, red fruits on the nose. On the palate it is soft and fruity, with prominent cherry and strawberry flavours, vibrant acidity and a long, lifted finish.
Such a pretty pink with fresh peach and strawberry notes. Beautifully made and great quality. Pale salmon in colour, this is delicate and fresh with plenty of crisp strawberry fruit and a long finish. The new benchmark for Provence rose.
Taking a page out of Provence’s book, this Cinsault rosé from Chile is bang on trend with its pale salmon hue. Lots of lovely red fruit flavours and delicate floral notes. It is bone dry with lots of zippy acidity and a weightier mouth feel than you might expect.
Jean Luc is pioneering vineyard development in a beautiful, scenic area just north of Marseille and this wine is close his heart reflecting the style he wants to make from this area. A light, refreshing, dry rosé with abundant yet subtle red fruit characters dominated by powerful aromas, reminiscent of the Mediterranean scrubland (garrigue). On the palate, notes of black olives , herbs and fresh fruit evoke the terroir of the Mediterranean coast. The beautiful and aptly named Blue Coast in a glass.
Bright berry fruits and a crisp acidity make this fantastic dry rose.
Excellent strawberry pink colour. Ripe strawberry and raspberry flavours. It has fresh acidity and a tropical fruity finish. This wine goes well with Pizza, pasta dishes, cheeses and salad. Colombar 98%, Pinotage 2%
Unique pale-copper colour ; aromatic with delicate citrus notes; crisp and refreshing on the palate.
A lively, fruity rosé wine with aromas of red summer fruits and an attractive sweetness on the palate.
Intense, fresh pink colour. Aromas of red fruits (strawberries, cherries, raspberries), but the number of aromas it gives off is never ending. Balanced, fresh and fruity. Its palate will probably have you hooked.
