C.U.N.E. Rioja Rosado 2009
We harvested our carefully selected Tempranillo grapes at optimum ripeness to achieve a high level of aromatic extraction and a good concentration. The grapes are kept in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to prevent the start of fermentation. The juice is removed (saignée or bleeding) from the solids after around 24 to 48 hours, once we have determined that the colour is the pink we require. The fermentation is then carried out without the presence of seeds or skins at a controlled temperature of 16º to 18ºC for around 8 days to obtain the required fruit levels in the wine.
