These are rosé wines that we can’t make every year since they are obtained, only when the harvested quality and quantity allow it, from a very small extraction of the grape must/juice coming from our vineyard of higher altitude Gembres (the one we use for the production of our Reservas and Gran Reservas), located more than 600m above sea level.
They are wines with a very special fruit feeling and acidity (almost reminiscent of the taste of candy), being therefore suitable for a classic aging in oak barrels despite the difficulty for being rosés.
As Reservas, they also have a medium / long aging in oak barrels (at least 17 months). For this we take at first our older barrels who already had several vintages previously, respecting thus the characteristics and properties of such a delicate wine (mainly its primary aromas such as floral and fruit, but and also secondary aromas) so that the barrels “do not eat the wine”. Once these characteristics and these aromas have stabilized, we proceed to transfer this wine to newer barrels providing the complexity and the desired tertiary aromas (roasted coffee, vanilla …).
After aging in the barrel and bottling, we proceed to stacking the bottles in a traditional way in our excavated cellars, where they will age in the bottle for at least 10 months for a correct stabilization and evolution until we can put them in the market.
These are wines to be enjoyed at a somewhat higher temperature than the typical young rosés, in order to appreciate the character that brings the aging. They are also complex rosés, with a surprising nuance number and evolving a lot as they are oxygenated. These wines have a great guarding potential (15-20 years or more in optimal conditions) and they are presented in limited and numbered editions.
