Vacceos Tempranillo Rosado, Agricola La Castellana, Rueda, Spain 2020
Regular price £10.10
Agricola la Castellana
Well-known co-operative – tempranillo-based rosé – summer party wine
Agricola la Castellana is based in the D.O. Rueda, an open expanse high above the Duero River, known best for its production of the Verdejo grape variety.
Winemaking in the region is characterised by the weather conditions, namely long, cold winters followed by short springs with late frosts, then baking hot summers. Cold nights all year round give balance to the sugar levels of the grapes, while the drop-off in temperature after nightfall also protects the acidity of the grapes.
The Vacceos Rosado is produced using Tempranillo grapes and is a delightful deep pink with cherry coloured highlights. Clean and round on the palate, hints of wild fruit are present while a lingering finish ensures this is a great wine for summer sipping.
