Tempranillo, Garnacha and Albillo Mayor
Harvest Date: September 27th, 2019.
Perfect partner to accompany fish and seafood, as well as pasta and rice dishes. It also combines with white meats and vegetables without forgetting small game meats, light stews or spicy oriental food. This wine is presented as guest of honor in appetizers and cocktails as well as in the new Japanese cuisine.
Attractive and vibrant very pale bright pink colour. Dense tears streaming down the sides of the glass after swirling.
Fine and elegant expression with intense and, at the same time, fresh varietal aromas, memories of red fruits and strawberries on a subtle suggestion of rose petals.
On the palate it is fresh and appetizing, with frank and pleasant sensation; good structure and aromatic complexity in the mouth. Its evolution in the mouth is admirable with a broad and harmonious final sensation.
The Tempranillo grapes selected for Nabal Rosé come from plots planted between 1980 and 2000 with north-south orientation on soils of deep, calcareous clay. Cordon Royat is the pruning conduction system, while yields are controlled at no more than 5000 Kg./ha. The two other varieties, Garnacha and Albillo Mayor grapes (15%), grew on high-valued bushed old vines, planted between 1930 and 1940 in a vineyard near to the winery. This harvest started on September 27th, 2019.
Nabal Rosé is produced of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Albillo Mayor varieties, which are harvested separately by hand and transported in 15-Kg-boxes to Bodegas Nabal. The must was obtained using the traditional and refined method of bleeding. It was followed by a minimum maceration of no more than 10 hours, in contact with the skins for the right extraction of color and release of aroma precursors. Alcoholic fermentation took place in steel tanks at low temperatures (11-1ºC), achieving an accurate aromatic expression. The processes of clarification, stabilization and filtering of the wine before its bottling were done in the most respectful possible way, to preserve its character to the maximum.
Recommended preservation and consumption between 8º C and 10º C.
