Silice Viticultores - Rosado 2019
(Ribeira Sacra, Spain)
A rare rosé from one of Spain's most underrated regions, and arguably one of our favourites. This blend of Mencia, Merenzao, and Palomino was direct pressed and fermented in barrels where it stayed on full lees for three months. It was then transferred to steel tanks for a few months before bottling. Very floral nose with complex layers, and buckets of character though with zesty citrus notes that keep it super fresh. This is proper fancy rosé, and a unique opportunity to try something new and wildly exciting.
Silice Viticultores is a collaboration between three friends who sought to unite old parcels in the canyons of the mythical Sil river. Extreme viticulture, jaw-dropping landscapes, and fanatical dedication yield some of Spain's most exciting wines.
