The summer rosé: light salmon pink in color and a fine fruity fragrance with nuances of ripe fruits and herbs. Very suitable as an aperitif but also delicious with cold starters the barbecue and fish.
Provencal rosé is becoming increasingly popular in the Netherlands. That is also Sara Román noticed the winemaker of Castelo de Medina in Rueda. This very competent graduate 'oenologist' became the winner of the large Mundus Vini wine competition in 2013: her verdejo was voted best Spanish white wine.
A maker of good white wine is usually also capable of creating rosé at a high level because vinification is very similar. That certainly applies to Sara who makes a rosé in Provençal style.
In Spain, light salmon pink shades for rosé are virtually unknown, but the grenade grapes from Rueda are perfect for this. A direct soft pressing of this blue grape variety gives the same salmon-colored shade as in Provence.
With this, the Castelo tastes a bit more juicy and smoother than the French original. It has not become a copy thanks to the influence of the Ruedaterroir: this Spanish rosé has its own character. Sara and her team made a beautiful wine and were rewarded with a gold medal at the International Wine Competition in Lyon.
