FROM THIS PRODUCER
SANT JOSEP CLOT D'ENCIS ROSAT
This traditionally-produced rosé wine is obtained from a blend based principally on Syrah grapes, a grape with a significant expressiveness. The blend also includes red Grenache, albeit in a lesser proportion. Production starts out from a healthy harvest with a degree of ripening uncommon in a red wine. Both varieties are processed separately. First a short pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by a fermentation of the must at controlled temperatures between 15 and 17 degrees.The result is a wine of intense pink colour with an extremely varietal aroma and fruity taste. On the palate it is fresh, fruity and full-bodied.
