Rosa de Arrocal 2015

Region: Ribera del Duero D.O.

Grapes: 100% Tempranillo
Vintage: 2015
Color: Rose

This wine reflects the flavor and spirit of Arrocal. It is named after Rosa, the owner's wife. Its taste is crisp and fruity. Grapes for this wine were hand-harvested into 16 kg boxes and were carried to the winery in 3,000 kg trailers. Skins soaked in the must for 24 hours at low temperature. Once the wine acquired the desired color and aroma, it was bled off for the start of the alcoholic fermentation at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks.


Publication Score Comments
Vinous 89 Deep, lurid pink. Deep-pitched raspberry and cherry aromas, along with a hint of candied rose. Supple red fruit and candied citrus fruit flavors show good depth and power, and a spine of juicy acidity adds lift. Smooth and fleshy in style, finishing on a subtly sweet note and offering good, fruity persistence.
