Condado de Oriza Rosé is made from Tinta del País (Tempranillo) grapes that are carefully selected from vines grown on gravelly clay loam soils in Ribera del Duero.
In the last 30 years, the Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero has emerged to challenge the crown of Spain’s greatest wine region; Rioja. Located in Spain’s northern plateau, this region covers four Castile and León provinces – Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. But, despite what its name may suggest, Ribera del Duero does not cover all of the villages along the River Duero. Ribera del Duero was granted its Denominación de Origen status in 1982 and today it has over 250 wineries and over 22,000 ha of vineyards. Most of Ribera del Duero’s production is red wine and only a moderate amount of rosé is produced. No white wines are permitted under the D.O. yet, but they will be soon. The region is characterised by its largely flat, rocky terrain.
Pale pink colour, clean and bright. It has an elegant aroma with characteristics of red fruit (strawberry, cherry) and light citrus notes. It is fruity, fresh with attractive acidity and long finish.
Pasta, soups vegetables, molluscs and crustaceans.
Serving temperature between 10-12ºC
Only the best tempranillo grapes are selected for this wine. The grapes undergo controlled maceration. This allows the skins to remain in contact with the must until it acquires its characteristic rosé colour. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16º C.
