A pale salmon pink rosé, made from 100% Organic Tempranillo grapes is the latest wine to be added to the Melea Organic range.
It joins a red Tempranillo and white Verdejo-Sauvignon Blanc blend in our exclusive range of organic, vegan-certified and wild yeast fermented wines from Cuenca in central Spain.
The rosé is made from organic Tempranillo grapes grown on dry-farmed vines planted in 1999 at an altitude of 660m. After crushing, the grapes undergo a short maceration of 4-5 hours at 18ºC to extract some colour. The must was then bled off and fermented without the skins using native yeasts at a controlled temperature of less than 24ºC. It was fined with vegan-friendly pea protein.
A brilliant salmon pink, with fresh aromas of strawberries and redcurrant, it has a rich, smooth and creamy texture with a clean finish.
