Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright and brilliant and light strawberry in color. Miguel Ángel describes this wine as being ‘fragrant and honest’, true to its unique blend. On the nose, this wine contains prevalent red-fruit aromas of strawberry, cherry, red currant and raspberry. ‘Fresh, fruit-forward, fine and balanced,’ this is ‘cheerful’ style of rosé combines the aromatic expressiveness of a warm vintage with the elegance and well-balanced acidity of a cold vintage.
Vineyard Notes
Located 2.5 hours north of Madrid near the village of Navarrete in Rioja Alta, the vines that go into making Finca Nueva’s Rosado are on average 35 years old and strategically planted in a north-northeast-facing direction. Influenced by the nearby Atlantic Ocean, Rioja Alta is known for prolonged periods of maturation, creating ideal growing conditions for Tempranillo, an early-ripening varietal. Finca Nueva’s red and white wines are either trellised or head-pruned and always planted close together, increasing nutrient competition. Rioja Alta’s unique terroir comprises a mixture of chalky, calcium-rich and ferrousclay, to rocky and alluvial soils. The 39 acres of vineyards controlled by Miguel Ángel are often organically fertilized and farmed sustainably.
Production Notes
During harvest, clusters are usually hand-picked and manually sorted. Grapes are destemmed and upon arrival at the winery, grape clusters are lightly crushed and gently pressed using a vertical basket press. Static free run of the juice occurs over 48 hours, and the juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks during 20 days at a temperature of 61°F.
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 vintage began with a soft and slightly rainy winter. Temperatures dropped significantly during February, giving way to an extremely rainy April that prompted an early bud-break and expansive vegetative growth. May was cool and rainy, while June was dry and warm. Flowering began during the third week of June and fruit set was lower than normal due an extraordinarily dry and early summer. Veraison took place during the first week of August and temperatures remained mild throughout September and into October. Miguel Ángel explained, ‘warm days and cold nights produced a spectacular level of phenolic maturity allowing for wonderfully balanced acidity.’ Harvest began on September 23rd resulting healthy clusters with great aromatic potential.
