Ribera del Duero

Tempranillo Rosado 2018

Size

With a bit of white in the blend (Albillo, Tempranillo Blanc and Verdejo along with Garnacha Negre feature as minor blend elements along with Tinto Fino), the old-school local name for this style is 'Ojo de Gallo' chook's eye pink! After a very short maceration, the bleed of Silos Joven and some pressings wine is fermented long (25 days maceration) and cool (16 degrees). The joy of pink - beautiful light red wine pared back but not stripped down. Not for describing, it's pure drinking pleasure, dry, soft, deep and clear. The wine has a really lovely line and nice gentle roundness yet is very light in glycerol. Pale pink, effectively dry at 3 g/l.
