Solarce Rosé is made using the traditional sangrado methods. The red grapes are brought into the winery and the free-run (i.e.unpressed) juice remains in contact with the grape skins for between 6 to 12 hours at a controlled temperature of 10°C. After this light maceration, the free-run juice is placed in a different tank where it ferments at a controlled temperature of 14 - 16°C to preserve the aromatic complexity of the four grape varieties.
Somewhere between pale strawberry and salmon-pink in colour, this is a wine with strong aromas from the four different grape varieties. Notes of strawberry and raspberry are prominent, evolving over time into white blossom and stone fruit. Long and persistent on the palate, with a delicate acidity that makes it a delightfully fresh wine.
Wonderful chilled as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to rice or seafood dishes.
