Vinification: The El Coto Rioja Rosé is a traditional blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha sourced from estate and other vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa. The wine sees a quick 48 hour maceration on the skins to extract flavor and color followed by a cold fermentation and bottling.
The wine has tangy, red cherry aromas with piquant herbal notes and ripe, juicy flavors on the palate. Cleansing acidity helps balance the fruit and helps the long, clean finish.
The wine has a bright pink color and powerful strawberry and raspberry aromas and flavors, with candied strawberries and violets, and rose petal hints. In the mouth, the wine is has a full-bodied, refreshing and crisp fruit character.

Fresh as can be, with pure aromas of nectarine and cherry blossoms. The palate is light but refreshing and lithe, with semisweet, punchy flavors of orange, peach and pith. Finishes clean and light in the classic, subtle, utilitarian way that a good Rioja rose should.

Super pink! I love this wine. Not because it's anything mind-blowing, but because it's so unashamed - and unashamedly PINK. It looks pink and tastes pink. Refreshing and just a bit of sweetness, but finishes dry. Yum. Delicious. At this price it's just silly not to take your skirt off and get some.

This dry rose in a lovely pale violet color, offers subtle but persistent flavors of berry, floral, anise and mineral. Crisp.
A blend of Grenache and Tempranillo, this ros tastes slightly off-dry. Its bright strawberry flavor made it shine with the spicy cheramoula. (We suspect that a more herbal-scented, drier ros would not fare as well.).
