A coupage of the most important red grape varieties at Sumarroca - Merlot, Tempranillo and Syrah - to produce a fresh and harmonious rosé. It comes exclusively from our own vineyards.
The wine comes from two of our own estates. The Tempranillo comes from the Molí Coloma estate next to the winery. The soil at the vineyard is very pebbly, giving the wines unique freshness and personality. The Merlot and Syrah come from the Sumarroca estate, where the soil is chalky with some gravel and little organic matter.
The 2014 harvest began with heavy rains in November, followed by a mild and very dry winter. Budbreak was some days earlier than in previous years. Rains of up to 60 litres at the start of budbreak promoted healthy growth. Spring was mild, especially during the daytime, and rather dry. There was no consistent rainfall until towards the end of May. Temperatures rose considerably in June and the weather was very humid. Daytime temperatures were moderate for the rest of the summer with normal lows and some rain. Harvesting began a little later than usual and production was down on the previous year.
Complex aromas with undertones of violets and notes of strawberry and raspberry. Soft and velvety on the palate with a fruity character that persists through to the aftertaste. Aftertaste of red fruit.
Separate winemaking processes for each variety. The length of maceration varies according to the variety, being ten hours for Tempranillo, four for Merlot and two in the case of Syrah. Static filtration for 24 hours and controlled fermentation at 16ºC.
