2021 Tinto Rey Rosé
A wonderfully crisp and refreshing wine that delivers loads of flavor!
The delicate pale peach color and complex flavors of the
2021 Tinto Rey Rosé are the result of 100% co-fermentation of Tempranillo,
Tannat and Verdejo. Beautiful, fresh fruit-salad aromas lead to full flavors of
peach, vanilla cream, honeydew and ambrosia. This pretty Rosé is bright,
crisp and refreshing with a bit of stone-fruit sweetness that adds viscosity
and a nice counterpoint to the zesty notes. The flavors linger in the finish
and set up the palate for another delicious sip.
Tinto Rey means Red King and is the name of our Spanish-centric wine brand. The Dunnigan Hills appellation is uniquely suited for grapes that thrive in a Mediterranean climate. Warm days, gravelly soil, little rainfall; these are ideal conditions for Tempranillo, Tannat, Graciano and Verdejo. The spicy, full-flavored Tinto Rey wines truly showcase the distinctive terroir of our vineyards.
The 2021 Tinto Rey Rosé is a blend of Matchbook Estate
Grown Tempranillo, Tannat and Verdejo. This wine is unique because it was
100% co-fermented, meaning all three varietals were crushed and fermented
together for better flavor integration. Our winemakers cold fermented (50°F)
the 2021 Rosé in stainless steel tanks to preserve the just-picked fresh fruit
flavors. The fermentation was arrested at .5% residual sugar to retain a touch
of the natural sweetness of the grapes and add viscosity. A wonderfully
crisp and refreshing wine that delivers loads of flavor.
This bright, lively Estate Bottled Rosé is delicious year-round as an aperitif and has enough body to pair with shellfish or roasted poultry.
