2020 Tinto Rey Estate Bottled Rosé
It's always Tinto Rey Rosé season! Fresh and yummy, this pretty wine has a depth of flavor that makes it the best thing to come out of 2020.
The delicate peach color and complex flavors of the 2020 Tinto Rey Rosé are the result of 100% co-fermentation of Tempranillo, Tannat and Verdejo. Intense aromas of peach, nectarine and key lime lead to full flavors of strawberry, cream soda, sassafras and tangerine. There is a satisfying weight to the wine that balances the zip of fresh fruit flavors. The crisp, clean finish sets up the palate for another delicious sip.
The 2020 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 2020 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 Rose is delicious year-round as an aperitif and has enough body to pair with shellfish and poultry.
