Castillo Clavijo Rosado
50% Tempranillo, 30% Viura, 20% Garnacha.
Manual, in small cases during mid September.
A selection of younger vines with average age of 20 years located in Rioja (villages of Clavijo, Alberite, Villamediana and surroundings) and planted in higher altitudes in order to maximize the variety’s fresh, fruity nature.
The free-un juice is fermented in stainless steel tanes at a controles temperature of 15°C and then kept on its fine lees for at least 4 months before bottling.
An excellent example of the classic rosé from Rioja (Aka Clarete) showing an intense, fruity and refreshing character. The Tempranillo adds structure and cherry notes, while the Viura provides a complex and refreshing touch backed with the attractive aromas of red fruit (raspberries) and spices provided by the garnacha. This is the perfect picnic wine is very versatile and great match with pasta and rice dishes, barbecues, tapas and exotic food (Mexican, Indian, etc.).
