2016 Cortijo Rioja Rosado (750ml)

Availability: In stock (20)

Grapes: 100% Garnacha

Tasting Notes:

"Limpid onion skin. Lively tangerine and melon scents and flavors, along with subtle floral and white pepper accents. Clean and focused, carrying no excess fat; a deeper peach quality arrives as the wine opens up. Finishes with good breadth and cling, leaving a refreshingly bitter citrus pith note behind." 89 Points, Vinous

Organically grown vines planted in 1983, tended in clay and limestone soil.

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 stainless steel to retain its fresh, expressive aromas and flavors. This is a classic Lagrima style of wine.
