Rosé Capricho, Val de Paxariñas,

DO. Bierzo, Castilla and León
Producer: Bodegas y Viñedos Gancedo;
Vintage 2017
Variety: 100% Mencía.
Elaboration: Harvested the first week of October in boxes of 15 kilos. Cold film maceration for two hours, bleeding, cold static settling for 24 hours and subsequent alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature (13-14ºC) for eighteen days. Aging on its own lees in stainless steel tanks for a period of three months.
Service temperature: 9-10º C.
Alcohol: 13º C.

Tasting: Pale rosé wine, onion skin color,  which is a current trend. Made from vineyards 30 years old in espalier. It spends only 24 hours in contact with the skin to acquire its delicate color. It is a very aromatic wine, with aromas that evoke strawberries and roses. The palate stands out for its freshness, and a touch of slightly sparkling wine. Still remains a certain sweetness reminiscent of caramel, and balanced with its acidity. Provided with the structure provided by the Mencía grape, it is a rosé with sparkle, persistent, that is left to drink with extreme ease. (€ 9-10)

Pairing: As many rosés supports a wide range of pairings, ranging from smoked, pasta, meat or marinated blue fish, white meat, salads, desserts, etc.
