Wine of the Day: Garnacha de Fuego (Fire) Rose, Spain

The winery is located in Munébrega, in the region of Calatayud (Aragon). The winery has 265 acre of Grenache from old vines, located at the top of the slopes ranging from 950 to 1,000 meters above sea level.

The vines are planted on two different plots. The first is characterized by decomposed slate. The second is composed mainly of red clay soils seriously. Although there is very little rainfall in the region, the clay holds enough water to the vines get moisture and are grown without irrigation. Then, the grapes are carefully harvested by hand and selected only the perfectly ripe bunches. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures.

This Garnacha de Fuego (Fire) Rose is a solid effort that has a light salmon color to go with notions of cherry blossom, orange peel and herbs de Provence. Medium-bodied, supple, fresh easy-drinking for summer.
