Espelt Rosado Corali 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

Now my second wine with dinner was the 2009 Espelt Corali Rosado, much less intimidating as a chilled rose than a red wine for most dinner guests! This wine was very refreshing, with a nose of pear, strawberry and grass along with a few floral notes. The taste was delightful combination of melon and peach with hints of fresh herbs with a clean, crisp finish. Again, the crispness and light fruit made a nice counter to the heaviness of some of our dinner (think stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and the ever popular green bean casserole!) and really made the turkey sing.

Espelt grows grapes in several properties in the area, and the vines we’re looking at are just 60 years old. Anna’s family has been farming in the region for generations, but just opened the winery ten years ago. Hills and mountains carve up the plains and coastal territory in the region, meaning that depending upon where you are, you could be a in a different microclimate. Right now we’re further inland among low-rolling hills, and mountains loom on the horizon. The next stop on our tour is a jagged rock ledge about seven feet tall along the side of the road, which Anna shows us to illustrate the qualities of Empordà soil. The top layer is sandy, and below that, granite. Anna plucks a plant that resembles rosemary from the ground. “This tells us the land is acidic,” she explains and hands it to me. I break the leaves, rub them between my fingers, and wonder if this herbaceous smell will be present in the wines we’ll taste later. Read less
