ILURCE ROSÉ RIOJA

VINTAGE

2021

VARIETY

Garnacha 100%

Climatic year

This was a complex vintage, marked by low rainfall throughout the growing season and a cooler than usual spring.

However, in September and with the beginning of the harvest, it began to rain intermittently, which complicated the harvest, making the selection of grapes in the field more exhaustive than in other years. In addition, temperatures in September and October were cooler than normal, which led to a slow and prolonged ripening, resulting in an excellent quality of our grapes.

Vineyard

Every year we search among our Garnacha plots to find those grapes that have fully ripened and have the lowest possible alcohol strength to use in this wine. The last task we undertake with these vines is our series of ripening controls.

The same plots do not feature every year in the wine produced, but we are able to assemble the very best clones of select Garnacha for young vineyards from the very oldest bush-trained vines. The vintage will have the last word.

Preparation

For our Ilurce rosé, there is strict control over ripening prior to the grapes being selected and manually harvested. They were carefully destemmed and pressed to ensure that the 48 hours in cold maceration saw them providing the must, right colour and finest aromas.

This saigné was statically racked and fermented with native yeasts at low temperatures (15ºC).

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR

Bright raspberry pink.

AROMA

Complex, where we can find red fruits such as strawberry, mixed with citrus notes reminiscent of tangerine and a floral background, scrubland.

ON THE PALATE

Fresh, round, unctuous; with a fruity flavor that invites to be drunk again.

SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS

Serve at 6-8ºC.

PAIRING

Rice, pasta, white meat, fish, vegetables: local artichokes, asparagus, vegetable stew, starters.
