Nabal Rosé 2019
The local Tempranillo variety is here perfectly adapted to the altitude and climate conditions of the area and complemented by Garnacha, which due to its rusticity adapts well to different soils and climates, and provides acidity and aromaticity.
Albillo is a historical white variety in the Ribera del Duero and generally tends to balance between alcohol and acidity. Although it is of little aromatic depth, notes of honey are detected. It has been harvested late in order to get a higher glyceric content with more silkiness and volume.
The Tempranillo grapes selected for Nabal Rosé come from plots planted between 1980 and 2000 with north-south orientation on soils of deep, calcareous clay. Cordon Royat pruning system and controlled yield of no more than 5000 Kg./ha.
The two other varieties, Garnacha and Albillo Mayor grapes (15%), grew on high-valued old vines, planted between 1930 and 1940 in a vineyard near to the winery and their harvest started on September 27th, 2019.
The favorable weather conditions along with some Spring rainfalls allowed the vines bloom well during the second half of April. In May, particularly during the first week of the month, some light frost was registered with no consequences for the vines. Regarding rainfall levels water reserves are lower than average, but well kept thanks to some soft and continuous rain.
Referring to oenological details, the grapes harvested were small-sized but holding excellent phoenological features, which foresees exceptional wines from this vintage.
Attractive and vibrant very pale bright pink colour. Dense tears streaming down the sides of the glass after swirling. Fine and elegant expression with intense and, at the same time, fresh varietal aromas, memories of red fruits and strawberries on a subtle suggestion of rose petals. On the palate it is fresh and appetising, with frank and pleasant sensation; good structure and aromatic complexity in the mouth. Its evolution in the mouth is admirable with a broad and harmonious final sensation.
Perfect partner to company fish and seafood, as well as pasta and rice dishes. It also combines with white meats and vegetables without forgetting small game meats, light stews or spicy oriental food.
