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 color is a lively pale pink and the nose a display of strawberries, raspberries and childhood candy. Dry and easy drinking it displays a wide range of red and dark fruits, strawberries, and cherries, sharp and crispy.Versatile, ideal as an aperitif, great with salads, Mediterranean food in general and Oriental cuisine.

"Vivid pink. Fresh red berries, white flowers and a hint of peppery spices on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Shows good depth as well as energy, picking up a hint of orange pith with air. Finishes smooth and spicy, with nice clarity and echoes of white pepper and bitter orange zest."
