Grape Varieties100% Pinot Noir
- 94 Points
BackgroundThe vineyards which produce the exceptional grapes that go into our Rosé Vintage are located in the Upper Penedès at an average altitude of 450 meters, with a more continental climate. This terroir has poor, certainly calcareous and with little water retention capacity. The 20 year old vines are grown respecting sustainability and environmentally friendly principles. Each cluster is selected on the vine and picked by hand. Vintage Rosé 2012 Gran Reserva is a rare, exclusive cava: vineyard production is 7,000 kg per hectare, below the usual average, which typically ranges from 10,000 to 12,000 kg/hectare.
VinificationAfter de-stemming, vatting occurs over different lengths of time, from direct pressing to up to 8 hours before pressing. We are looking for floral profiles in the short-term vatted musts and fruitier ones in the longer vatted musts. After the pre-fermentation maceration, the must is separated at 0.5 bars of pressure with a maximum must extraction of 55%. Static settling and fermentation for 20 days in stainless steel tanks at temperature between 62°F. Second fermentation carried out in the same bottle according to the Traditional Method. Minimum of 36 months in our deep underground cellars.
ColorRed with developed orange hues, clean and shining. Fine bubbles start from the bottom of the glass finishing in a delicate crown.
NoseA pure and very suggestive aroma Floral aromas such as rose petals and some fruity aromas such as strawberry tree fruit.
PalateDelicate on the palate, with clear notes of the ageing process coupled with ripe resinous plant aromas such as pine and eucalyptus.
